For many woman, their large posterior can be a source of pride. For others, it can be a source of insecurity. If you are in the latter group, scientists from the University of Oxford have some news that might just change your mind. Turns out, women with naturally occurring ample backsides are more intelligent and more resistant to chronic illnesses!
The study of 16,000 woman found that women with big butts had lower levels of cholesterol and are far more likely to produce hormones that help to metabolize sugar. This means that women with this physical attribute are less likely to have diabetes and heart health problems.
In the female body, a big butt favours leptin and dinopectina levels. Leptin is a hormone that helps regulate weight while dinopectina is a hormone with anti-inflammatory, vascular-protective and anti-diabetic properties. The adipose tissues in the buttocks actually traps fatty particles and prevents cardiovascular disease. Similar studies have found that women with large behinds, wide hips and smaller waists may actually live longer.

When it comes to intelligence levels, having a big backside requires having excess levels of Omega 3 fats. Omega 3s have been shown to catalyze brain development. These researchers also found that children born to women with wide hips are intellectually superior to children of slimmer, less curvy women.
If you were looking for one more reason to be proud of your ample booty, this is it!
