A new medical study is sure to get a lot of people – especially women – fired up! According to the new study, one reason so many American women are overweight is that they are vacuuming and doing laundry less often.
You heard right! A University of South Carolina researcher compiled data about how women spend their time and how it has changed over the years. Here are some of the results:
-In 1965, women spent 25.7 hours a week working in the house cleaning, cooking and doing laundry
-In 2010, women spent only 13.3 hours per week on housework and they also spent more time sitting in front of a screen (they not only had TVs, they now had home computers)
So what does this all mean? Researchers say women are now burning far fewer calories a day than in 1965.
So what do you think about this study? Should women do more vacuuming and laundry if they want to lose weight? Sound off!
