Well if you happen to have a big bum you maybe healthier than the rest of us according to a latest study from the University of Oxford.
Yes ladies! If you happen to have a larger than average bum you are not only considered increasingly intelligent but you are also most likely to be resistant to chronic illnesses recent research suggests. According to ABC News, the results of the research carried out at Oxford found that women with larger backsides tend to have lower levels of cholesterol and are more likely to produce hormones to metabolize sugar, i.e making women with big bums less likely to have diabetes or heart complications.
The leading researchers also discovered that the children born to women with wider hips are more likely to be more intelligent than those born slimmer and less curvy mothers. According to Professor Konstantinos Manolopoulos, who leads the team at the University of Oxford, “women with significantly more fat on their buttocks have lower levels of cholesterol and glucose.” Professor Manolopoulos also says a big bum produces more 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. It is understood the adipose tissue of the buttocks also helps trap harmful fatty particles and prevents said women from developing cardiovascular disease.
However it is not yet known if men with larger than average rear-ends have the same benefits due to the obvious fact of men having different hormones.
