The Canadian Men’s Health Foundation (CMHF) is a national not-for-profit organization empowered with the mission to inspire Canadian men to lead and live healthier lives. Canadians believe they’re a pretty healthy nation. But weirdly, Canadian guys aren’t that healthy. It’s not because of genetics; it’s a result of lifestyle.
In Canada, men aged 30 – 64 over 65% are overweight or obese, almost 50% are inactive, over 40% binge drink and 26% smoke.
These lifestyle choices lead to alarming health statistics: men are 40% more likely to die from cancer, 70% more likely to die from heart disease and live an average of 9 years of their lives in extremely poor health. 70% of men’s health problems can be prevented by adopting a healthier lifestyle and that is why the CMHF was launched in 2014.
The CMHF was founded by men’s health visionary and Order of Canada recipient Dr. Larry Goldenberg and its President Wayne Hartrick.
