Moshave Movember – Men’s health through history…by Jessica Jefferson

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Last year I published this article for the first time.  The subject is so important to me, I wanted to repost!

This time of year, most of the writers I know are talking about November being all about the Nano – trying to write a book in one month’s time.  But November is also a time to spread awareness about men’s health, something we predominantly female romance writers don’t spend a lot of time writing about.  During the month of November, many men show their support for the awareness of men’s health issues and funding for scientific research into cures and treatment by forgoing their razors and letting their shaggy sides show – No Shave November or Moustache Movember are two popular movements.  Men’s health is often overlooked since men are just so, well, manly.  But without them, we romance writers and readers would have no heroes for our heroines, no rakes to antagonize our female protagonists, no breeches for our bosoms to heave over. So, to help the Movember movement, I thought I’d provide a few facts about men’s health through the ages as talking points to help you start a dialogue with the rogue in your life about his health.
