New York: Lack of household work for modern women might be contributing to obesity, a new study has claimed.According to researchers, since the 1960s, more women have taken desk jobs and cut back on physical activity like household chores.In 1965, the average women spent nearly 26 hours per week on chores like cooking, cleaning and doing the dishes. Women today allot about half that time for chores, the study revealed."What we were trying to find is what has changed in our environment that has led to obesity," study leader Edward Archer, a researcher at the University of South Carolina, told the New York Daily News.
