Here’s the kicker about the Dutch study: the same cannot be said of men who are not better off by doing more housework. Seee….
The University Medical Centre Rotterdam team found that a 55-year-old woman who doesn’t do that much housework will likely live to see her 83rd birthday – but if she was on top of the housework, she would live on to the age of 86.
