June is Men’s Health Month

The DuPage County Health Department reminds men that just a few lifestyle changes will result in a healthier and longer life.

  • Eat more fruits and vegetables.
  • Keep serving sizes in check; watch your intake of salt, fat and empty calories.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Protect yourself from injuries at work, home or play.
  • Get at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days.
  •  Quit smoking.
  • If you drink, do so in moderation. Read more
