I have always known the doing steady housework was as good as any exercise regimne. Being a loving husband I let my wife get all the exersise she can. Bending to pick up my sox is an act of love on both our parts.
Honest. From the linked article:
Dusting, mopping and vacuuming was also better than having a physical job.
The latest study looked at both pre- and post-menopausal women and a range of activities, including work, leisure and housework.
All forms of physical activity combined reduced the breast cancer risk in post-menopausal women, but had no obvious effect in pre-menopausal women.
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.
