Men in the United States face many of the same health problems men in other developed countries face to a greater or lesser extent. In 2016, the life expectancy for men in the United States was 76.3 years, around five years less than that of women. The leading causes of death for men in 2016 were heart disease and cancer, accounting for a combined 46.7 percent of all male deaths that year. In addition to physical disease, mental health issues are common among men in the U.S., with suicide ranking the seventh leading cause of death. Men are often more likely than women to participate in behavior that puts their health at risk, through smoking and drinking alcohol for example, highlighting the need for men to be educated on basic health and encouraged to lead healthy lifestyles.
