NOW YOU'RE TALKIN'!:

Housework cuts breast cancer risk (BBC, 12/29/06)

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

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


No word yet on whether there's added benefit to being barefoot and pregnant...

Actually, it's well established that early pregnancy cuts the risk of breast cancer substantially.

Any man who does housework should be arrested.

. . . and doing that housework in a french maid costume cuts the risk even further . . . I hear.
