HealthDay (11/23, Reinberg) reports researchers have “found that in older adults, cleaning house was tied to a better memory and attention span, and stronger legs, which helps prevent falls.” The team “looked at nearly 500 healthy Singaporeans between 21 and 90 years of age” and, “after accounting for other types of regular physical activity…found that housework was tied with sharper mental abilities and better physical capacity – but only among the older participants.” The findings were published in BMJ Open.
