Another reason to love that booty

This just in:  those curvy hips, shapely butt and thunder thighs are good for you!

British researchers say the type of fat carried in that part of the body has the ability to soak up fatty acids and contains an anti-inflammatory agent that stops arteries from clogging.

But these scientists warn that sporting a rotund tummy with that pear shaped bottom negates whatever good comes from a big butt.

You can read more about their research here.

What I find most fascinating are these two lines:

“Science could look to deliberately increase hip fat, they told the International Journal of Obesity.  And in the future, doctors might prescribe ways to redistribute body fat to the hips to protect against cardiovascular and metabolic diseases such as diabetes.”

I guess we have a future of J.Lo clones to look foward to!  Sir Mix-a-Lot will be happy.
