 In Men DIY Boosts Life Expectancy: Study
A Danish study has revealed that breaking into a sweat by regularly doing jobs around the house could reduce the risk of premature death in men.

According to the report in the medical journal 'Epidemiology', the 'Do-it-yourself' policy if applied in daily routine could reduce the risk of death by 23% among men aged 50 to 64, the Daily Express reported.

A previous study had revealed that most modern men lack basic DIY skills such as tiling walls, fitting a carpet or changing taps, but to live longer, men must learn to do these tasks instead of hiring a handyman.
