Cleaning is bad for your health...

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.
Two-thirds of those in the study who reported doing the bulk of cleaning were women and fewer than 10 percent of them were full-time homemakers, the researchers said.

Moral of the story- Men seem to be less likely to be affected by this serious health concern. I need to either
1) Stop cleaning
2) Have Brian clean more often
3) Hire a male housekeeper
