Scientists at Rutgers University in the United States conducted a study and found that the brave men rarely visit doctors, because of what their life expectancy is reduced.
The study involved 250 men, who initially shared their views on masculinity and then spoke as often go to the doctor. As a result, it became clear that the representatives of the stronger sex, who have traditional views of masculinity and consider themselves independent and authoritative, rarely go to the annual survey, and avoid visits to female doctors. In addition, sometimes courageous men do not tell the doctors the truth about their health.
According to scientists, men are embarrassed to talk to doctors about health problems. Moreover, such men do not want to seem weak or become dependent on another person, even if that person – a doctor, according to the study authors.
