Men's mind-set toward medicine

According to a recent Lou Harris poll, men were 3 times more likely than women to avoid doctors when they had persistent minor medical symptoms.
Men's (this kind) of mind-set toward medicine may partially explains why, of every 100,000 people, 297 men die of heart disease each year, but just 163 women. Cancer, likewise, takes 238 men per 100,000 compared to 163 women.
