Intensions Study: Five Health Habits of Canadian Men

A new study conducted by Intensions Consulting and the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation has found that seventy-two percent of men regularly demonstrate two or more unhealthy behaviours, including a poor diet, smoking cigarettes, problem drinking, not exercising or not getting regular sleep.

The study, which was published in the latest edition of the Canadian Urological Association Journal, involved an online survey with 2000 Canadian men between the ages of 19 and 94 years.

A new study conducted by the Canadian Men’s Health Foundation (CMHF) and Intensions Consulting has examined the sleep habits of Canadian men.

The study, which surveyed 500 Canadian men between the ages of 30 and 49, found that a third (33%) of men are only getting 4 to 6 hours of sleep each night. This amount of sleep is much lower than the 7 to 8 hours recommended by health experts, and may explain why nearly half of Canadian men (49%) said they often wake up feeling tired or not refreshed in the morning.

“Men may be surprised to learn that getting at least 7 hours of sleep is a great way to speed up your metabolism, reduce your chances of having a heart attack, prostate cancer and developing type 2 diabetes,” said Dr. Larry Goldenberg, Chairman of the CMHF.

Intensions Consulting recently collaborated on an article published in the Urology Times titled, 'Personalized messaging: Communicating with men about their health'.

Authored by Dr. Larry Goldenberg, Professor of Urologic Sciences at the University of British Columbia, and Dr. Sean Skeldon, Urologist at the University of Toronto, the article explored common psychological and sociological motivations that lead men to make different health-related decisions.
