Big Bums are Good for Your Health

If you have been hating yourself for the extra pounds you are carrying on your hips and thighs, then here is a good news for you.

“Fat around the hips and thighs is good for you but around the tummy is bad. Big thighs and hips are beneficial as the fat around these areas protect us from heart and metabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes”, the Oxford team told the International Journal of Obesity. They believe that the body fat takes up harmful fatty acids and contains an anti-inflammatory agent that stops arteries clogging, reports The BBC.

“It is shape that matters and where the fat gathers”, says lead researcher Dr Konstantinos Manolopoulos, of Oxford University.
