British researchers have established that women doing less house-related work are doomed to obesity.

The average American and West European woman now is spending nearly 20% less of her daily housework than in 1980s.

Now women are spending more time outside of their houses and this change of housework to office work will add more pounds on their weight-scales.

Mopping floors burns 200 calories an hour whereas working on a as little as 70 calories.

Therefore female obesity in Western Hemisphere has tripled in the last 30 years, and lack of homework activities are one of the reasons.

While women are doing less housework, men are getting more and more involved in it.

British researchers used a government data on calorie counts and exercise to find out the cause.

-Our research suggests that previous conclusions that excessive food consumption is the main factor explaining obesity is not quite correct. Both physical activity and less food are important.

Jobs have become more sedentary, with more people working long hours in offices.

Commutes are also getting longer, but rather than short walks to the office we spend more time in cars or trains.
