The Housework Conspiracy

Is this some kind of conspiracy? Researchers say that doing housework can reduce a woman's chance of getting cancer.

They found the risk of endometrial and breast cancer was cut by 30% from physical activity such as household chores and walking. Women who did chores for more than four hours a day had more protection than those who only worked for two hours. Women who walked for a hour a day, rather than just a half hour, also got less cancer.

Researcher Clare Stevinson says, "Some levels of housework are hard enough to have a physiological effect. It doesn't have to be a huge amount of high intensity stuff. But the more you do, the better."

Ladies: We not only need to throw off our own shackles, we need to be concerned about our sisters in foreign lands. And when we DO clean, let's wear the right clothes!
