Expeditious Male Aging

Oprah's favorite doc, Dr. Mehmet Oz, discussed the five things that age people most on a recent episode of Good Morning America. He spoke with a group of male staff members one day and female staff members the next. In my experience, males seem to worry less about their overall health so I've decided to post what Dr. Oz mentioned as the 5 things that age males the most:

  1. Hypertension (high blood pressure)

  2. Central adiposity (belly fat)

  3. Stress

  4. Smoking

  5. Poor nutrition

What kills me figuratively and kills others literally is that ALL of the above are modifiable behaviors. Here's a link to the video and article from ABC:
