  • Women with big bums are healthier, says science

    Scientists at the Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism at Oxford University and the Churchill Hospital have found that women with big bums are increasingly intelligent and more resistant to chronic illnesses.

    The number of health benefits make booty akin to a miracle cure.

     

    Behind the data

     

    Population studies cited in the research found that women with larger bottoms are more likely to have lower levels of cholesterol and produce more hormones to metabolize sugar.

    Moreover, the adipose tissue on a bum and upper thigh catches the harmful fatty particles and prevents cardiovascular disease.

    Having a big butt also favours the hormone which regulates weight, and ones with anti-inflammatory, vascular-protective and anti-diabetic attributes.

    The protective properties of booty are exerted through long term fatty acid storage.

     

    Smart arse

     

    The increased intelligence is due to the amount of Omega 3 fats required to get a big bum in the first place.

    Omega 3 fats are proven to catalyze brain development.

    The traits appear to be passed on. The research also showed that children born to women with larger hips were more intelligent.

    The research shows a good sized posterior is good for posterity.

    Published in the International Journal of Obesity in 2010, the study concluded that if a person is going to carry body fat, the thighs and buttocks at least offer some protection.

    The lead researcher Konstantinos Manolopoulos explained.

     

    Fat around the hips and thighs is good for you but around the tummy is bad.


    The study ‘Gluteofemoral body fat as a determinant of metabolic health’ focused on the distribution of fat around the body, rather than looking at whether or not more fat was healthier.
