It is November and it is the month of the well-known “No Shave November”. Many may not know the reason for this movement in the penultimate month of the year.
Although it can be thought that it is the month of rest, of not having to shave; the reality is that it has a reason why it exists.
It all started in 2009 in Australia, when 50 men decided to stop shaving for the entire month of November, and the money they would spend at the barbershop would be donated to an organization that supports those with prostate cancer.
This movement, which is also called "No Shave Movember" for the M of Mustache, already has millions of followers around the world who have joined the cause.
Prostate cancer is a disease that is occurring more and more in men. The American Cancer Society diagnosed 220,800 new cases of prostate cancer and 27,540 deaths were reported from the same in 2015.
Movements like this are very good ideas to raise awareness to take the necessary care to prevent this disease and show solidarity with those who suffer from this condition.
