Narrator: As a man, what can I do to keep and improve my health?

James Rippe, MD: I think the most important message to men is to recognize that heart disease is by far the leading cause of death in men and that men are not taking good care enough of themselves. And in particular, men are not getting their blood pressure measured on a regular basis. So if you're a guy, get your blood pressure measured, a very simple, painless thing. One out of every three adults in the United States, one out of every three men in the United States has high blood pressure and one third of those people don't even know that they have it. So get your blood pressure measured and then pay attention to your weight. There's too much obesity, to much overweight in men, and they are not taking good enough care of themselves.
