Scientists at the Oxford University revealed in a recent study that women with larger behinds are less likely to develop chronic diseases and are smarter than women with average or smaller behinds, exciting right?
They revealed women with healthier butts have lower cholesterol levels thanks to their hormones which help them process sugars faster. Moreover, it was also concluded that women with larger buttocks are at a smaller risk of developing cardiovascular conditions or diabetes compared to the other group.
This is all because these women have a surplus of Omega 3 fatty acids, which is also responsible for the improved brain function.
The ABC News reports Professor Konstantinos Manolopoulos’s statement, the leader of the study, “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.”
More so, “If you’re going to have fat, you’re better off if you’ve got some fat in the lower body,” according to Dr. Michael Jensen, Director of Endocrine Research at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.
“If you look at people who have primarily the pear shape, they’re healthy in all the ways that this fat behaves. It’s not just less heart attacks or less diabetes, it’s all these ways we think about fat as an important organ for our health.”
All of these conclusions are based on information from more than 16.000 women analyzed. Having a big butt also favors leptin levels in the female body, which is a hormone responsible for regulating the weight, and the dinopectina, a hormone with anti-inflammatory, vascular-protective and anti-diabetic attributes.
The buttocks tissues, called the adipose tissue, is said to trap harmful fatty acids. This, in turn, prevents cardiovascular diseases.
Apparently, similar studies have been conducted by universities in California and Pittsburgh that came to the same conclusion – women with bigger butts, wide hips and smaller waists may even have a longer life expectancy.
However, this different study by Oxford University, also suggested that this is only the case for natural buttocks, not surgically enhanced ones. So, sorry Amber Rose and Blac Chyna, you don’t fall into the category.
