A Big Butt Is A Healthy Butt: Women With Big Butts Are Smarter And Healthier

A Big Butt Is A Healthy Butt: Women With Big Butts Are Smarter And Healthier
WORLD •  • 

Scientists from the University of Oxford have discovered that women with larger 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 backsides tend to have lower levels of cholesterol and are more likely to produce hormones to metabolize sugar. 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. The researchers also found that the children born to women with wider hips are intellectually superior to the children of slimmer, less curvy mothers.

Eyeonthenut reports that the 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 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 adipose tissue of the buttocks traps harmful fatty particles and prevents cardiovascular disease.

Eyeonthenut also cites 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.

Study: Trying to lose weight? Lose the fat substitutes

June 21, 2011
Susan E. Swithers and Terry L. Davidson, professors of psychological sciences, found that fat substitutes used in popular snack foods to help people control weight may have the opposite effect. Their research findings, published in Behavioral Neuroscience, were based on rats that consumed potato chips with and without the fat substitutes. The rats that consumed the fat substitute were more likely to gain weight. The researchers are part of Purdue’s Ingestive Behavior Research Center. (Purdue University photo/Andrew Hancock)

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Fat substitutes used in popular snack foods to help people control weight may have the opposite effect, according to Purdue University research.

“These substitutes are meant to mimic the taste of fat in foods that are normally high in fat while providing a lower number of calories, but they may end up confusing the body,” said Susan E. Swithers, professor of psychological sciences. “We didn’t study this in people, but we found that when rats consumed a fat substitute, learned signals that could help control food intake were disrupted, and the rats gained weight as a result.
