In today's time, health care has become one of the necessities for people. People especially men remain so busy with their work life they tend to ignore their health.

The number of cancer patients is estimated to rise by 2020.
Most of the diseases occur in Indian men due to the changing weather, rise in pollution, unhealthy food habits, smoking and more.
Some of the diseases the Indian men are likely to face are as follows:-
Diabetes: Unhealthy food habits and improper eating routine are the major reasons for Diabetes. Diabetes is quite risky as they tend to develop into heart problems in the future.
Hypertension: Most of the Indian men have high blood pressure and it is like a ticking time bomb if not taken care of. This is also caused due to irregular food habits.
Cardiovascular or Heart problems: Once Heart problems were considered to be old men’s problem but now even men as young as 30 years old are getting diagnosed with heart diseases. Chain smokers and over-weight people are at high risk of developing heart problems at a young age.
