The researchers noticed that women today spend more time at work and spend only a little time to do housework.
Based on data from observations taken in the UK, the average woman now spends almost 20 percent less time to do housework. Advances in technology also make household chores tend to be lighter than in the past.
For example, mopping the floor can burn 200 calories per hour. The introduction of a dishwasher, microwave and other labor saving devices also increase the risk of obesity in women.
For those of you who are busy working, doing household chores can certainly be a healthy activity that you can do before or after work. It can help lower your risk of obesity, which triggers many dangerous diseases, including heart disease.
