Men’s Health in France – It’s Movember!

International Men’s Day (IMD) is November 19th each year. Celebrated in over 70 countries, one of the main objectives is focusing on men’s and boys’ health. A spin-off of IMD is called Movember, an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide. So, in honor of Movember, in lieu of growing a moustache to show our support for Men’s health, we ladies thought we’d explore health as it pertains to men in France, with the goal of getting you some insider tips on how to stay healthy, as a monsieur, in the land of cheese, wine and pastries.
