Study Proves Women with Bigger Butts Are Smarter and Healthier

The research was led by Oxford University no less.

A A A

It turns out there’s a science-supported reason to celebrate big butts. A study led by Oxford University found that women with larger behinds, or those that fall under the ‘pear’ body type, are smarter and more resistant to chronic illnesses. Data from 16,000 women were analyzed for the study.

So not only is it essential to determine the amount of one’s body fat, it is also helpful to identify where the body fat is located. Women with butts like those of Beyonce and Kim Kardashian should rejoice.

Science supports that having more fat in the thighs and the hips is a good sign.

Lead researcher of the study Professor Konstantinos Manolopoulous was quoted as saying:

“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.”

Women with larger bums tend to have lower cholesterol and glucose levels, as well as higher level of Omega-3 acids.

Having higher levels of Omega-3 acids is helpful for brain functions. Bottom-heavy women also have more dinopectina, a hormone with anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, and vascular-protective attributes, as well as leptin, a hormone responsible for regulating the weight. The adipose tissue of the butt, on the other hand, traps harmful fatty particles and prevents cardiovascular disease.

The study also found that children born from women with wider hips are intellectually superior to those born from slimmer mothers.

Many other studies support this claim. A similar research done by the US National of Library Medicine suggests the same. Women with higher body fat in the lower body have more Omega-3 acids, and Omega-3 acids have been proven to aid in the brain development of babies.

What do you think ladies? Do you agree with the findings?

15 Most Interesting Borders Across The Globe

These borders are indeed unique and interesting!

The world was naturally made without borders, but men have created boundaries to separate one nation from another. There are many ways to build borders to separate countries - some would let nature take control while others have built heavily-guarded barriers.

In fact, one of the oldest borders in the world today is no other than the Great Wall of China, which was built starting in 221 BC to 1644, to separate China from Mongolia.

There are boundaries, however, that stand out from others. In a way, these borders were either built by humans or have let nature defy the selfish motives of men. Here are the most interesting and unique borders around the world.

5 Things Chronic Liars Say And Do Often

Do not be deceived.

For chronic liars, also called pathological liars and compulsive liars, lying is a habit. They may be aware that they're not being truthful, or they may believe the lies they're telling are the real deal. Some chronic liars engage in this behavior to make their lives "more exciting."

Loneliness is now considered a health hazard as it was found that a high percentage of people would die early if they spend most of their time feeling lonely. It should be noted that loneliness is different than being alone as the latter goes hand in hand with chronic depression.

Feeling lonely not only affects the mental health.
