I find it interesting that men’s health issues are represented in the advertising realm as either hair loss or sexual performance issues.  I guess those are the pills that sell, huh?  How curious is it that those are things we’re alright with talking about, yet something as important as testicular cancer doesn’t get the same play as say breast or ovarian cancer*?  Here’s a UK PSA that aims to change that imbalance, which was directed by Ben Greggor in conjuntion with Everyman, a site that seeks to inform about prostrate and testicular cancer.

    Nice. (What’s the asterisks for?)

  • .alphamonkey.

    Those would have been for a statement that said (Yes, I know breast and ovarian cancer rates are higher than for testicular cancer)
