Cleveland Clinic survey examines American men’s health habits

Editor's Note

A new national survey by Cleveland Clinic finds a disconnect between men’s perception of their health and their actual health habits.

A total of 1,000 US men, 18 years of age and older, were surveyed.

In the survey, 81% of men said they believe they are leading a healthy lifestyle, but the results showed differently, including:

  • 44% do not get a yearly physical
  • 44% do not prioritize mental health
  • 83% have experienced stress in the past 6 months
  • 49% do not eat a healthy diet
  • 27% watch TV for more than 5 hours per day on average
  • 2.3 hours per day on average are spent on social media.

The survey was issued by as part of Cleveland Clinic’s eighth annual educational campaign, “MENtion it.”
