Excessive Male Deaths

3,780 EXCESS MALE DEATHS, AND COUNTING On February 14, Rep. Duke Cunningham and Jim McDermott introduced the Men's Health Act (HR 632), to establish the Office of Men's Health in DHHS.  Their bill hit a nerve, because the bill now has 68 co-sponsors (see list below). Cunningham and McDermott also mailed a letter to DHHS Secretary Tommy Thompson asking him to administratively establish the Office of Men's Health. The DHHS has finally responded. Arthur J. Lawrence, PhD, just wrote Men's Health America, and had this to say: "We agree that men's health issues warrant more attention.... While we have not yet taken a position on the bill creating an Office of Men's Health, you can be sure we are studying it carefully, and will take a position at the appropriate time." Each year, there are about 30,000 excess male deaths in this country.  That translates into 84 unnecessary deaths each day. Forty-five days have now passed since the Men's Health Act was first introduced. Since then, 3,780 men have died needlessly. Maybe one of these persons was a man in your life. WE CAN'T ALLOW THE DHHS TO QUIETLY FORGET ABOUT THE Office of Men's Health. IT'S TIME TO EXPRESS YOUR OPINION ON THE NEED FOR AN OFFICE OF MEN'S HEALTH. Contact: Arthur J. Lawrence, PhD Assistant Surgeon General 200 Independence Ave., SW Washington, DC 20201 And if your Representative isn't on this list yet, you may want to find out why.
