    Housework can pose a health hazard

    Housework might be bad for your health, according to a study suggesting that tidying up as little as once a week with common cleaning sprays and air fresheners could raise the risk of asthma in adults.

    Exposure to such cleaning materials even just once a week could account for as many as one in seven adult asthma cases, the researchers wrote in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

    That's why I've always stayed as far away from housework as possible.

    I already knew this.

    I have a good friend who burned her hand on the oven and ended up in the hospital with a staph infection.

    My MIL burned her hand ironing.

    Another friend got a chemical burn from her bathroom cleanser.

    I'll tell you, cleaning is just too dangerous these days and I'm NOT going to do it!!!
