There’s good news for all of you that you have been made fun of because of your large posterior at some point. A recent study provided by Oxford University has revealed that women with bigger buttocks are healthier and smarter than their thinner counterparts, as reported by Cosmopolitan.
The data of 16,000 women have been analyzed, and Oxford University has found based on that data that women with larger than average backsides are more resistant to chronic illnesses.
Konstantinos Manolopoulous, the lead researcher of the study, says:
“The idea that body fat distribution is important to health has been known for some time. However, it is only very recently that thigh fat and a large hip circumference have been shown to promote health; that lower body fat is protective by itself.”
It was also pointed out in the study that women with larger buttocks tend to have lower levels of cholesterol and glucose, and thus high levels of Omega 3 fats. The levels of the hormone Dinopectina that has anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic benefits are also higher with women with big buttocks.
However, the researchers concluded that it’s important for people to make sure that any changes they’re making to adopt a healthier lifestyle meets their needs as an individual, and to consider what works for them best. And the best place to start looking for advice is their local GP.
