According to a recent research conducted by scientists at the Oxford University, women with larger butts are less likely to develop chronic diseases and are smarter than women with average or smaller backsides.
The researchers revealed that women with bigger butts have lower cholesterol levels which they owe to their hormones that help them process sugars faster. Also the team concluded that women with larger buttocks are at a smaller risk of developing diabetes or cardiovascular conditions compared to the other category of women.
These women have a surplus of Omega 3 fatty acids, which is also responsible for the improved brain function.
Leader of the study, Professor Konstantinos Manolopoulos, says that “women with more fat on the buttocks have lower levels of cholesterol and glucose,” ABC News reports.
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 adipose tissue of the buttocks traps harmful fatty particles and prevents cardiovascular disease.
Seemingly, similar studies have been conducted by universities in California and Pittsburgh that arrived at similar conclusion that women with wide hips, bigger butts, and smaller waists may live longer and healthier lives.
