Housework link to reducing risk of breast-cancer

Housework cuts breast cancer risk

Women who exercise by doing the housework can reduce their risk of breast cancer, a study suggests.

The research on more than 200,000 women from nine European countries found doing household chores was far more cancer protective than playing sport.

Dusting, mopping and vacuuming was also better than having a physical job.

No wonder cases of breast cancer have been rising in recent decades; women don’t do housework anymore. It’s soooo sexist (unlike expecting a man to be the main breadwinner; that’s not sexist at all, no ma’am.)

So next time some women hassle you to donate money for a charity that battles Breast Cancer, go one better than giving them cash; give them a big pile of ironing to do, or ask them to clean up your desk.

Apparantly, wrestling with the one-eyed trouser snake can help ward off prostate cancer in men, so in actual fact you can suggest an even better idea, one that’s mutually beneficial. Ask the ladies (but only the pretty ones) to come round your house/apartment in skimpy French Maid outfits and dust and hoover the place up, whilst you watch them from the sofa and have a wank. Hey presto! Everyone has reduced their chances of developing breast or prostate cancer, and a healthy cancer-free future is one-step closer for one and all. Hurrah!

mmmmm, I wonder if they are working on a tonsillitis reduction strategy for our women too?………..
I do hope so.

…..I just hope she doesn’t burn my ironing as she does my shirts at the same time,…….what with women being so good at multitasking and all, it SHOULDN’T be a problem…

Check this out from the article:

“The results contradict those of previous studies, which have suggested that having had many sexual partners, or a high frequency of sexual activity, increases the risk of prostate cancer by up to 40 per cent. The key difference is that these earlier studies defined sexual activity as sexual intercourse, whereas the latest study focused on the number of ejaculations, whether or not intercourse was involved.

The team speculates that infections caused by intercourse may increase the risk of prostate cancer.”

Hmm, so intercourse increases the chances of getting prostate cancer but wanking decreases it: Woman are officially proven to be health risks for men.

Time for a new international awareness effort: The first official Wank for Life campaign.

That reminds me of a study that found…
Housework ‘is depressing’

Thanks to those investigative folks at Glasgow Uni.

Yes, its an old link, but the story recently resurfaced (teletext or ceefax).

Davout makes a good point. My attention was also drawn to the bit that says “Men have many ways of using their prostate which do not involve women or other men.”

Well said, that man. Keep your dick clear of women, and you can avoid all sorts of problems.

The best method for women of preventing breast cancer is to have children before they are 30 and breastfeed.

In fact it almost completely prevents it.

Feminists who are more responsible than anyone for childbirth over 30, then bang on about breast cancer awareness are more than a little hypocritical. They are lemmings.

“I care more about a rodent’s arse than a lemming’s breasts.”
– My catchphrase for feminist breast cancer awareness.

I couldn’t care less what the hell causes cancer in women. I do not care what prevents it either. I simply do not care.

@happy bullet
The best method for women of preventing breast cancer is to have children before they are 30 and breastfeed.

It is even better if they get children when they are 15.
But it does not prevent it completely. The rate falls by 75%.
