Mo-Vember: Bad Hygiene, for a Good Cause…

leave a comment »

Considering my last blog was about October and Breast Cancer Awareness month, it’s only right that this blog is dedicated to No Shave November. For a long time, I thought two things. First, I thought it was a joke; and after I realized it wasn’t, I thought it was just a trend allowing it to be acceptable for men to be scruffy for a whole month.  To make a long story short, November has somehow become “Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.” This interesting boycott on shaving started in areas such as Australia and New Zealand, where they originally celebrated “Mo-Vember”, a combination of the words moustache and November. According to the national cancer institute, this form of cancer is typically found in men between the ages of twenty and thirty-nine; and while the numbers are getting higher, as of now about 8,090 are diagnosed yearly.
