National Men's Health Week (June 13-19, 2005) serves as a proactive measure to encourage men and boys to seek regular medical advice and early treatment for disease and injury. It has become increasingly important for men to become aware of preventable health problems, and seek out early detection of treatment and disease, as men are at a high risk for health problems such as high blood pressure, prostate, diabetes, cancer, and obesity.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 190,000 more men are diagnosed with a cancer than women each year, and cancer kills men 18 percent more often than women. Furthermore, 4.4 million men in the United States have already had a heart attack, and men between the ages 29-44 have a 40 percent higher chance of having a heart attack than women.

As recent studies show that men's health has been steadily declining, acupuncture and Oriental medicine can help many of the common ailments that men face. Acupuncture has been cited by the World Health Organization to treat over 43 conditions, including those previously mentioned. Using acupuncture to treat health problems of concern to men has been growing in popularity; a Kaiser study conducted in 2002 found that 57.2 percent of primary care physicians in Northern California used or recommended acupuncture in the previous year. And according to the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, nearly one out of every 10 adults in the United States has tried acupuncture.
