Household Chores May Reduce Risk Of Breast Cancer
Researchers suggest that regular housework may be more effective in reducing breast cancer risk than more intense but less frequent spare time physical activity.. 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.'
