Toronto, ON (PRWEB) March 14, 2013

Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on new research that shows female obesity could be due to less participation in household tasks.

As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/weight-management/less-housework-means-weight-gain-for-women/) the decrease in the amount of housework being performed by women in recent years compared to decades ago may be contributing to the rising levels of obesity that are being seen in today’s society, according to a recent study published in PLoSOne.

Researchers looked at historical data from women 19-64 years of age, from 1965-2010, investigating how much time and energy was spent on household chores (cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc.). The results showed that in 1965, women spent an average of 25.7 hours per week on household chores, while in 2010 women were only spending 13.3 hours on housework. Women who were unemployed decreased their household task hours by about 17 hours while working women decreased their household chore hours by about 7 hours.

Disturbingly, women were found to be spending their extra time plopped in front of the television. The researchers found that in 1965, women typically spent about 8 hours per week watching television programs. In 2010, the number of hours spent watching television increased to 16.5 a week. This type of inactivity can lead to weight gain and obesity.

As the Bel Marra Health article reads, in addition to finding that women were spending less time on household chores in 2010 compared to 1965, the researchers
