Obesity is a disease that everyone fears, whether male or female. People spend lot of time in gym to reduce weight, believing that doing exercise can reduce weight and keep us fit.
Researchers of London University and Manchester University believe that the major cause of obesity in recent times in women is due to household work done by them.
The reason for this is the extensive use of technology, and insufficient manual work. Earlier, one used brooms and mops to clean floors, which have been replaced by vacuum cleaners, dishwashers to wash dishes, washing machines for clothes, and so on. So, though work is being done efficiently, effort being put in is far less than earlier.
Also, diets have become richer, with a lot of junk food and empty calories becoming a part of routine eating. This has further exacerbated the situation.
