Men may neglect their own health, but men are not the most neglected and never have been.

When you start a thread title with “Why” then you’re suppose to follow it up with evidence or source in the original post.

I’ve never seen or read anything that says men’s health is understudied.

Its hard to study men without their participation. If men went to the doctor more, medical science would surely know more about the elusive creatures.

Honestly, there have been plenty of advances for men. Prostate issues. Viagra, etc. Even penile implant pumps. Issues they will go to a doctor regarding.

At the bottom of the hierarchy, eh? Is that why every single President and every single Vice President in this country has been male?

What are you talking about? The vast majority of studies are conducted on men.

That's just the natural state of things. It's true in most species of mammals, and also in different human societies. Whether it's biological or environmental is still under some debate, however the US healthcare system has virtually zero relevance in the disparity. Educate yourself before posting nonsense:
