Study: Housework Cuts Breast Cancer Risk

Men are the ultimate feminists. It's not that we're lazy or swinish. It's that making you clean is our way of participating in The Race For The Cure (TM).

Women who exercise by doing the housework can reduce their risk of breast cancer, a study suggests.

The research on more than 200,000 women from nine European countries found doing household chores was far more cancer protective than playing sport.

Dusting, mopping and vacuuming was also better than having a physical job.

The women in the Cancer Research UK-funded study spent an average of 16 to 17 hours a week cooking, cleaning and doing the washing.
...

Out of all of the activities [studied], 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.

...

The international authors said their results suggested that moderate forms of physical activity, such as housework, may be more important than less frequent but more intense recreational physical activity in reducing breast cancer risk.

Thanks to chickpea.

Not Really Related: From Allah, a WikiHow article on How To Hide An Erection.

Not sure a real "man" wrote this piece. "He" completely missed some obvious ways of hiding an erection -- for example, this "guy" didn't mention anything about disguising it with a severed hobo's head.
