Just as I've FINALLY convinced my husband to let us pay for some help around the house.
The research on more than 200,000 women from nine European countries found doing household chores was far more cancer protective than playing sport.Read it and weep--or laugh, it's hard to figure which.
Dusting, mopping and vacuuming was also better than having a physical job.
Out of all of the activities, only housework significantly reduced the risk of both pre- and post-menopausal women getting the disease.
Housework cut breast cancer risk by 30% among the pre-menopausal women and 20% among the post-menopausal women.
Boy, does this put a whole new light on "The Politics of Housework"!!!
