"Movember” Continues To Spread Awareness about Men’s Health

MovemberBefore planning to shave your mouthwashes, give a though towards significance of "Movember”, a move designed to raise awareness about men’s health including prostate cancer as well as many other cancers that tend to affect them, globally.

"Movember”, works on a simple concept where men are urged to grow their mouthwashes for complete one month in order to express their support for the sufferers along with efforts to combat this lethal form of cancer that kills a number of men every year, all over the world.

The noble campaign started with an interesting story where two best friends Travis and Luke challenged each other for growing moustache in the month of November and then to check who had worked better, during 2003 in Australia.

Afterwards, Travis's brother Adam had also joined the friends in 2004 and insisted to grow moustache-for raising concern over men’s health and increase maximum possible awareness about them. Gradually, the event has increased its spell, even out of Australia to ten other countries including Canada, and continued to warn and men against the deadly prostate cancer, one of the most common cancers in men. As per available health data, every year more than 25,000 men are likely to contract prostate, particularly in Canada.

“Even though on the face of it Movember appears to be a light-hearted campaign, it has been hugely successful in not only raising millions of pounds for research into prostate cancer”, commented the Chief Executive of The Prostate Cancer Charity, Owen Sharp, and urged young men to take good care of their health.

It has been reported that during the last year, more than 100,000 enthusiastic participants have blended their efforts to raise an amount of £11.7m. The organizers have expressed confidence to gather more funds as compared to previous figures.
