This study of 36,000 people over the age of 65 says that when women spend up to 3 hours doing household chores, it is detrimental to their health. When men do more around the house, it is good for their health. Something to discuss while doing the dishes….together!
The blame is put on women trapped in the kitchen, preparing meals and cleaning for long hours.
Too many household chores can cut older women’s chances of staying healthy by 25 per cent, a study has shown.
But men can do more chores and stay healthy, probably because they spend more active time gardening and doing DIY.
