Women: Do more housework or DIE

It was a scientific study, so it must be true! Sorry, ladies!

Women who keep their homes clean and tidy are less likely to develop breast cancer than those who let the dust and dishes pile up, according to a new report.

Researchers found regular moderate exercise such as housework provides greater protection from the disease than more strenuous but less frequent sporting activity.

Being active in the home cut the likelihood of pre-menopausal women developing breast cancer by 29 per cent compared with being inactive, and reduced the risk for post-menopausal women by 19 per cent.

I think I'll work on accomplishing the same thing by drinking plenty of water so that I up my activity for the day with trips to the bathroom. Sounds more fun than housekeeping.
