Instances of prostate cancer are going up and sperm counts are going down -- so why aren’t we talking more about men’s health?
Whether a partner, parent, or friends, we all have important men in our lives. But how often do we talk to them about their health?
Naturopathic physician Dr. Ralph Esposito joins me today to talk about the under-discussed topic of men’s health. We talk about the importance of testosterone in overall health, possible factors contributing to decreasing sperm counts, and what men can do to stay healthy as they age.
I hope this episode sparks some conversations with the men in your life. Enjoy!
