Women who spend a substantial amount of time doing domestic chores such as growing fruits and vegetables, churning butter, beating rugs, washing windows and caring for children have better bone density and overall bone health than women leading sedentary lifestyles, new research has found.  Previous studies in this area have looked at bone density measurements in menopausal women.

This time, researchers at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign focused on women between the ages of 18 and 46, an age group that is not often examined in bone density studies. "We wondered why there is so little research on pre-menopausal women when their bone density and activity are believed to predict post-menopausal osteoporosis,"; said Kathryn Clancy, professor of anthropology.

Researchers focused on a population of farmers in rural Poland whose lifestyles included a significant agricultural and domestic workforce. They did some basic body measurements and looked at the physical activity patterns of these women. "We also used a bone sonometer. It is a portable device that is convenient for taking bone density measurements," Lee said.
