Scientists from the University of Oxford discovered that women with larger than average hips and thighs tend to have elevated levels intelligence and they are very resistant to chronic illnesses.
That’s women with God-given natural big hips, not those that have artificial substances pumped into their hips.
According to ABC News, the results found that women with bigger backsides tend to have lower levels of cholesterol and are more likely to produce hormones to metabolize sugar. This translates into these women less likely to have diabetes or heart issues.
Therefore, women with big butts are less likely to have diabetes or heart problems.
And having a big butt requires an excess of Omega 3 fats, which have been proven to catalyze brain development.
According to the study, the type of fat found in the thighs and backside may actually help reduce disease, as opposed to the dangerous and life-threatening effects of abdominal fat.
It’s a fact that body fat’s distribution is quite important for your health says lead researcher Konstantinos Manolopoulos of the University of Oxford in England. Manolopoulos and his colleagues detailed their findings in an article in The International Journal of Obesity.
The review also suggests a mechanism for conveying those benefits. According to the experts, the next step is to figure out how our bodies decide where to store fat, say, in the stomach versus the butt.
“Once this is understood then one could think about therapeutic approaches to make use of that,” Manolopoulos said. “Maybe to make use (of it) in a preventive way by redistributing the fat.”
This lower body fat also traps fatty acids. While this long-term storage can make it tricky to slim down your butt and thighs, it’s healthier for you if some fat stays put.
“If fatty acids are not stored in fat but in other organs like the liver or the arteries, this makes you prone to develop diabetes and heart disease,” Manolopoulos said. “One moment on the lips, forever on the hips. It really is exactly this phenomenon; the fat that goes there stays there”; that is, on the hips and thighs.
Manolopoulos reported that the most compelling evidence for the link comes from population studies showing the more fat individuals have in the hind area, the less likely they are to develop diabetes and heart disease later in life. Other evidence includes instances of Cushing’s syndrome, in which patients lose their hip and thigh fat while gaining stomach fat. These patients are known to have an increased risk for diabetes and heart disease.
Similar studies conducted by universities in California and Pittsburgh support the fact that these health benefits from big hips translate into longer life spans for the “ low-end endowed” women.
So in conclusion, big hips and thighs are not only nice physical attributes, they’re also a health benefit.
