A "Thought 4 the Week" on the Mission of this Site//An Admonition 4 All

The mission of this site has been to be a forum about the need to be safe.    I view being safe as not just being prepared for emergencies--but also to remain healthy and be proactive about the state of one's health. As we look to Father's Day, this guidance I just saw from USA.Gov is quite timely:

Men's Health Week, which runs until Father's Day (June 16), is a reminder to take control of your health. 

Over the past year, men were 24% less likely than women to see a doctor. This reluctance to seek medical care is dangerous. Many of the health risks that men face can be prevented or treated with early diagnosis. See recommendations for regular checkups and screenings: 

Get information about a variety of men's health topics, including the top causes of death in men:
1. heart disease
2. cancer
3. accidents (unintentional injuries)

Happy Father's Day to all..and Best Wishes!! :-)
