The morphological differentiation of male and female is the product of biological evolution to an advanced stage. The differences in appearance, anatomy, function and other physiological aspects between men and women have been noticed by people since ancient times, and the traditional concept of “men and women are different” has gradually formed. Generally speaking, men are taller, wider, stronger and more muscular than women. Therefore, many people believe that men are stronger and stronger than women. However, with the continuous development of medicine, more and more data show that men are not only not stronger than women, but also have more chances of getting sick than women, and their life span is generally shorter than that of women. This determines that male health preservation is not only necessary, but also realistic.
From a physiological point of view, men face more hardships than women from the beginning of life. Male fertilized eggs are less likely to survive than female fertilized eggs. Because of genetic factors, when male fetuses exist in the uterus, they have to undergo a more complex transformation process than female fetuses, so the spontaneous abortion rate of male fetuses is higher than that of female fetuses. In the first month after birth, the mortality rate of male infants is 30% higher than that of female infants, and the disability and deformity rate of male infants is 33% higher than that of female infants. It can be seen that the congenital condition of men is not superior to that of women, and the quality of men is not naturally strong.
Men’s tolerance and disease resistance are also worse than women’s. Men are less tolerant to cold, hunger, fatigue and mental stress than women. When the man encounters resistance in the job, often palpitation is quickened, blood pressure elevates, adrenal gland is secreted increase, and the female has this kind of reaction rarely however, consequently the morbidity of cardiovascular disease of the male is prep above female, the female has double immune gene, there is twice at the immune material of the male, consequently a lot of disease women are little hair, and the male is much hair, and case fatality rate is high also. Some people have made statistics, about 30 kinds of diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, hemophilia, gastric ulcer, color blindness, baldness, furuncles and sores, are more common in men.
Many people think that women are emotionally fickle and mentally fragile. In fact, men are not as emotionally stable as women, and men’s tolerance to mental stress is far lower than that of women. Some data show that male patients with mental disorders are more than women, suicide men are more than women, and the ratio of male to female patients with epilepsy is 8:1. Many countries have far more male than female patients in mental hospitals. The male to female ratio of stuttering is 5:1. In the Second World War, almost 70% more men than women suffered from mental illness because they were surrounded and bombed by the enemy.
From the point of view of longevity, it also sounds an alarm for men-men’s short life span. According to the medical statistics of the former Soviet Union, the ratio of male to female newborns in the Soviet Union is basically coordinated, but in old age, the ratio of male to female is 50:100, and the average life expectancy of men is far less than that of women. In China, the average life expectancy of men is five years less than that of women.
With the continuous development of medical science, people’s understanding of male science is deepening. The idea that men are stronger than women has begun to waver, and the problem of men’s health care has attracted more and more attention. Exploring the way of men’s health has become a hot topic for many men, especially the elderly men. If we look back on history, it is not difficult to see that in the ancient Chinese medical work Yellow Emperor’s Canon of Internal Medicine, our ancients put male health care in a more prominent position than female health care. Not to mention the various health preservation methods of men, there are more than 20 kinds of male diseases recorded in the book, such as less semen, spermatorrhea, premature ejaculation, impotence, sexual aversion, non-ejaculation, sexual stem pain, testicular swelling and pain, infertility, menopausal syndrome and so on. There are only four or five kinds of female diseases recorded, such as menstrual diseases. Obviously, in ancient times, more attention was paid to male health care.
Regrettably, until 2000 years later, there are still many men who regard themselves as “strong men” and are blindly optimistic because their parents give them a congenital better physical condition than women, so they do not cherish the maintenance of their bodies. What is more worrying is that many unhealthy men drag their morbid bodies, but they are unaware of it. They still drink too much, smoke too much, overeat, play cards all night, and injure themselves. Some men do not know much about themselves, and know little about male scientific knowledge and health preservation, so that there are those who are ill and lose their fertility, those who unconsciously bring illness to their wives, those who blame their wives for infertility, and so on. It can be seen that both doctors and ordinary men should know some knowledge of male health care, which is not only beneficial to themselves, but also to their families and society.
