Housework Prevents Breast Cancer

I love the British. Really, I love those bloody folks.

Cancer Prevention
Granted, I am part Irish from my mother's side of the family. Relations between the British and Irish haven't always been ideal. Still, one has to forgive at least part of that now that the BBC has reported that women who get the majority of their exercise by doing housework are less likely to develop breast cancer than other women.

I imagine it won't be long now until some guy looks at his wife and says, "Honey, I'd love to help you with the laundry but I don't want you to get cancer."

This, of course, will likely spur another report from the BBC on how a rolling pin really can be a deadly weapon.

I cannot imagine how they verified all the information without actually going and watching them clean, documenting their methods, lengths of time it took and materials used and size of rooms, etc.

You find some really interesting stuff.....
