New research reveals that a shocking 33 per cent of men aged between 35 and 60 years are so overweight that they cannot see their manhood when they stand upright and look downwards.
This equates to more than 5.6million men in Britain that are potentially dangerously overweight and risk shortening their life span by up to ten years, at danger from strokes, diabetes and heart disease.
Meanwhile a staggering 44 per cent of those aged between 51 and 60 fail the ’spot the penis’ test, says the research.
Obese men who are unable see their penises are said to be five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes and three times more likely to develop cancer of the colon.
The easy health check for men is to check if they can see their penis beyond their bloated bellies.
It has long been suggested that men with huge waistlines are more dangerous than overwieght.An obese man who cannot see his penis is said to be up to five times more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, three times more likely to develop cancer of the colon and three times as likely to develop high blood pressure leading to a stroke and heart disease.
