Household Chores May Reduce Risk Of Breast Cancer

A lot of physical exercise is involved in doing housework and even though the housewife who does it is seldom appreciated, nature seems to-by reducing the risk of breast// cancer.

A research that surveyed 200,000 women from 9 European countries found household chores are far more cancer protective than playing sport.

It has been long known that physical exercise reduces the risk of breast cancer, perhaps through hormonal and metabolic changes.

Dusting, mopping and vacuuming were good exercise and better than having a physical job.

The Cancer Research UK-funded the study in which women spent about 16 to 17 hours in a week cooking, cleaning and washing.

This only goes on to prove the significance of housework and housewives need not feel as if they are doing something worthless.

But more research is needed to say what type of exercise and how much of it are necessary for this risk reduction.

Previous researches have been studied on post-menopausal women. This new study observed both pre- and post-menopausal women involved in a range of activities, including work, leisure and housework.

All forms of sports and physical exercises combined reduced the breast cancer risk in post-menopausal women, but had no noticeable effect in pre-menopausal women.

Of all of the activities, only housework seemed to significantly reduce the risk of getting the disease in both pre- and post-menopausal women.

3,423 cases of breast cancer in women were studied over an average of 6.4 years.

Researchers suggest that regular housework may be more effective than more intense but less frequent spare time physical activity in reducing breast cancer risk.

Dr Lesley Walker of Cancer Research UK said: "We already know that women who keep a healthy weight are less likely to develop breast cancer.

"This study suggests that being physically active may also help reduce the risk and that something as simple and cheap as doing the housework can help."
