Men's HealthNEW YORK (Reuters Health) – More gay men reported being cancer survivors than straight men in a new examine from California.

On the 31st October, you might have your last shave for 30 days. Then for the whole month of November, sorry, Movember, you grow and groom your sub-nostril foliage. During the month, you talk about why you are doing it – to lift consciousness and, hopefully, cash for man-cancers, reminiscent of prostate and testicular most cancers. You will likely be a Mo Bro.

National Beard Month was established by… I dunno, someone… in 2002. It must have seemed a good suggestion to have an entire month to have a purpose to preen, speak about and flaunt the face-foliage. Apparently there is a ‘bearded brethren’ who, when passing in the street, communicate silently; understanding and empathizing with one another.

Facial hair growth is stimulated by the hormone dihydrotestosterone, which, surprisingly can be the hormone responsible for hair loss on the head. It appears that hair follicles react to hormone stimulus in numerous ways relying the place they are. Sensitive little chaps, aren’t they?

I don’t have that a lot.
