Fresh Fruit Can Improve Men's Health

Share Article

Delicious, healthy fresh fruit choices provide people with good alternatives to junk food and snacks while helping to decrease the risk of disease. Market Fresh Fruit is participating in promoting a healthier outlook for men in June in honor of both Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month, and Men’s Health Month.

Men in the office are much more willing to try new eating behaviors.

Did you know that men typically experience a higher rate of disease than women? But there is positive news according to Tom O’Connor, owner of Market Fresh Fruit in Seattle, Washington. Through a balanced diet of fruits and vegetables, and with regular exercise health risk factors can be reduced.

“Everyone knows that men can't be told to stop eating junk food,” said O’Connor, who offers fresh fruit delivery to offices in the Seattle area. “But they can be "coaxed" towards healthy eating. Fresh, delicious fruit at work is an important step.”

O’Connor adds that coworkers can also help promote healthy eating by just mentioning food like a fresh peach, or an apple. “Men in the office are much more willing to try new eating behaviors,” he said. “Eating more fruit drops the risk of lifestyle diseases. Plus fruit-at-work boosts mental focus and productivity. It's an effective way to help men experiment with a healthy diet.”

"There is a silent health crisis in America," said Dr. David Gremillion in a recent report on the Men’s Health Network. Gremillion warned about the current state of men’s health. “It’s that fact that, on average, American men live sicker and die younger than American women.”
