'The ultimate guide on how to stay healthy as a man, both physically and mentally' JASON FOX, EX-SPECIAL FORCES AND BESTSELLING AUTHOR Being a man is bad for your health. Not only do men have a greater chance of getting almost every illness but they die sooner too: one in five men die before the age of 65. So why do so many men still accept poor health as a consequence of 'just getting older'?

In MAN ALIVE, Dr Jeff Foster, men's health specialist and private GP, examines the most commonly misunderstood aspects of men's health, such as testosterone deficiency and 'male menopause', heart disease, diabetes and mental health. He also looks at conditions related to male anatomy and physiology, including erectile dysfunction and prostate disease, with advice on what symptoms and signs to look for, how to self-examine, and when to consider seeing a doctor. Dr Foster covers problems to do with lifestyle too, including obesity, poor sleep, bad nutrition, and lack of exercise, and he examines the evidence for specific health claims - busting plenty of myths along the way.

'An immensely useful and practical guide, answering the questions that every man has about their day-to-day health' IAN MARBER 'Many men avoid going to the doctor as they fear their concerns are either embarrassing or they will not be taken seriously. This book will empower men with the right information to change this' DR LOUISE NEWSON

Before studying medicine, Dr Jeff Foster completed an honours degree in Physiology at Kings College London. He then went on to study medicine and has worked since qualifying in 2004. In addition to his core work as a General Practitioner, until 2017, Dr Foster also worked as a senior doctor in a busy Accident and Emergency department at Coventry hospital. It was through his work in general practice, that Dr Foster developed his interest in men's health. After realising that men's health was not a dedicated speciality within medicine, Dr Foster decided to create such a position in order to provide an holistic approach to the care of his male patients. Since then, Dr Foster has opened up two private Men's Health clinics, and has been involved in developing and promoting Men's Health at both a local and national level. He has written medical articles on various male health topics such as testosterone deficiency and erectile dysfunction, as well as promoting awareness of prostate cancer and giving talks to the local community. In addition, Dr Foster regularly writes and contributes to articles at a national level on all aspects of health and wellbeing. In the last year, Dr Foster has had publications in the Sunday Mirror, The Guardian, Woman and Home Magazine, Take a Break, Reader's Digest, The Evening Standard, HuffPost, The Telegraph, The Daily Mail, and Netdoctor. https://www.drjefffoster.co.uk/

Reviews for Man Alive: The health problems men face and how to fix them

This is a fabulous book for all men (and women) to read. There is so much information written in a clear and comprehensive style supported by the current evidence. Men's health is often neglected and so many men avoid going to the doctors as they fear their concerns are either embarrassing or they will not be taken seriously. This book will empower men with the right information to change this -- Dr Louise Newson MAN ALIVE is an immensely useful and practical guide, answering the questions that every man has about their day-to-day health. Dr Jeff Foster brings to life issues that men should know about (but mostly don't), explaining and advising in a clear and relatable way. It's a book that you will refer to again and again -- Ian Marber
