It is a universal fact that men die before women. But the causes of this have long remained unexplored.Why Men Die Firstexamines the reasons that men are more susceptible to illness and explains what they need to do to live longer. Bestselling author and professor of clinical medicine at Columbia University, Dr. Marianne Legato delves into problems that both men and women care about, including: * How men's reluctance to speak frankly to their physicians can kill them * The hormonal shift called "andropause," the male menopause, and therapies that alleviate its painful symptoms *Men's biological predisposition to infection and how best to protect against it *The real causes of male depression and how to treat it *The risks inherent to the male heart, and ways to correct coronary disease--even late in life Through her appearances on theToday ShowandNBC Nightly News, Legato has launched the conversation about why men die young, and what we all can do to reverse the grim trend.
