A national survey of men by the Cancer Research UK suggests that about 25% of the participants// are in denial of their weight problem.

The data, which was collected across the country of UK, suggest that 65 % of the men surveyed are either overweight or obese, while 25% of them do not accept themselves as overweight. The survey was done as apart of the research on men’s health called Men Alive Campaign. It shows the participants to be grossly unaware of their health risks from carrying excess weight. About 65% of the men who answered the questionnaire had no idea that being overweight can cause cancer while about 75% of the answers showed that men are not aware of physical inactivity increasing their health risks along with their bulging body weighs.

The campaign is designed to make men aware of the risks associated with being overweight or obese. The results also brought out that men are also not very careful of their diet and often do not follow the recommended dietary allowance for healthy living. Only 22% of the men who took the survey ate recommended five portions of fruits and vegetables per day and about one third of them do a daily exercise for half an hour.
