Why get active? It's a question of health.

I've spent most of the last week or so preparing the malehealth online quiz A Question of Health. It's all part of Men's Health Week 2010 - the theme of which is physical activity and the aim of which is to get a million more men moving.

Winners of this online quiz will be invited to the Week's national launch event to compete in a live Question of Health against a celebrity team including snooker legend Jimmy White, former World Darts Champion Andy Fordham, and rugby league celebrity Steve Prescott. Quizmaster is fisherman and broadcaster Keith Arthur. There will be sporting prizes for the winning team. And prizes for those who do well in the quiz but can't come to the event.

A Question of Health will be held at West Ham FC (Upton Park, London) on Monday 14 June, 4.00 to 6.00pm and will be followed by a drinks reception and a free tour of West Ham's ground.

There are two further quizzes just for fun - well worth doing to warm-up for the real thing!

Hey, thanks for the post and the quiz. Haven't taken it yet, but I just e-mailed the link to my husband -- he needs to take it! This book ("To Pee or Not to Pee...") focuses more on prostate health and not general men's health, but is very comprehensive for this topic. The author (James Norris) talks about every prostate procedure, surgical and non-surgical, in great details and also talks about all the side effects, plus devices and procedures to minimize some of the side effects, including sexual ones. As he says, some of the procedures can "maybe even get Mr. Happy to occasionally rise and perform." It's a good book for men and the women who love them.
