Discussing men’s health
Over a few pints of beer
Could save someone’s life
Written by Captain Hops
References: Rick Lyke over at Lyke 2 Drink came up with the idea of a national awareness campaign sponsored by the beer industry called Pints for Prostates after his own first hand experience with prostate cancer. The campaign will be launched in September which is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.
The basic premise of the campaign is to convince men aged 40 and older to get a PSA test. This simple blood test can give early warning of prostate cancer before there are symptoms and when it is most successfully treatable.
If you have a blog, website, or access to the media, consider joining the campaign in September. If you are a man age 40 or over or know such a man, make sure the message sinks in: Get a PSA test. You don’t have to wait until September for that.
