Scientists from the University of Oxford have discovered that women with bigger than average butts are not only increasingly intelligent but also very resistant to chronic illnesses.
According to ABC News, the results found that women with bigger butts tend to have lower levels of cholesterol and are more likely to produce hormones to metabolize sugar. Basically women with big butts are less likely to have heart problems or diabetes. Having a big backside requires more than average amount of Omega 3 fats, which have been proven to catalyze brain development. Researchers also found that the children born by women with wider hips are intellectually superior to the children of slimmer, less curvy mothers.
The research team analyzed data from 16,000 women.
From ABC News:
“Professor Konstantinos Manolopoulos, who leads the team at the University of Oxford, says that women with more fat on the buttocks have lower levels of cholesterol and glucose.”
Having a big butt also favors leptin levels aka the hormone responsible for regulating weight, and also the dinopectina, a hormone with anti-inflammatory, vascular-protective and anti-diabetic attributes. The adipose tissue of the buttocks traps harmful fatty particles and prevents cardiovascular disease. Similar studies conducted by universities in California and Pittsburgh not too long ago that discovered that women with bigger butts, wide hips and smaller waists may even live longer as well.
