Postpartum depression is a type of depression that can take hold after the birth of a child. It is much more common in women. Yet it may well strike upward of one-quarter of dads. A recent review looked at the latest research on the mood disorder to better explain how it affects men.
Lung cancer. Heart disease. Stroke. You probably already know that smoking can lead to these health hazards. A recent study found that smoking may be especially bad for men's bones.
