A study have revealed that women with sizeable derrières have smarter children than flat-bottomed women.
Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh claim fat supplies found in a woman’s butt and thighs help a baby’s brain develop. They say having extra fat in this area allows a woman to store additional nutrients that can be passed on to the baby through breastfeeding.
“You need lots of fat to make a nervous system and the fats in these areas [buttocks and thigh] are also enriched in DHA [docosahexaenoic acid] which is a particularly important component in the human brain.”
According to Lassek, fat around the bum and thigh is particularly hard to shift after giving birth as our bodies have evolved to accumulate these fats and hold on to them for as long as possible for the good of our children.
