How Movember Benefits Men's Health
Men must be clean-shaven at the start of the month, and are not permitted to grow beards or goatees – though a “small complimentary growth under the bottom lip is allowed,” according to official Movember rules. There’s a reason for that. “It’s the growth of a new moustache that sparks conversations, which in turn generates awareness and educates people on the health issues men face,” says Movember’s U.S. manager Mark Hedstrom. Consider: Throughout the month, each moustache generates more than 2,400 conversations about men’s health, Hedstrom says.
