Q: This study of 36,000 people over the age of 65 says that when women do this too much their health will suffer But when men do more of this they will experience better health. What could it be?
A: Household Chores.
The blame is put on women trapped in the kitchen, preparing meals and cleaning for long hours.
Too many household chores can cut older women’s chances of staying healthy by 25 per cent, a study has shown.
But men can do more chores and stay healthy, probably because they spend more active time gardening and doing DIY.
