Women with bigger bums and thicc thighs are healthier and smarter

Science has confirmed it

A study by clever people at the University of Oxford has confirmed if you carry more junk in your trunk, you're generally healthier and smarter. Someone pass me the cake.

The study tested 16,000 women, and found women with larger than average bottoms are more intelligent and more resistant to disease – that's a lot of bums, you can't argue with that.

Professor Konstantinos Manolopoulous who lead the study, said: "The idea that body fat distribution is important to health has been known for some time."

"However, it is only very recently that thigh fat and a large hip circumference have been shown to promote health; that lower body fat is protective by itself."

The revolutionary study also revealed the larger assed variety of female is likely to have lower levels of cholesterol and glucose, and higher levels of Omega 3 fats, which are all are good things.

The adipose tissue of the bum prevents cardiovascular disease, so the more jiggle the better.

These all sound like excellent reasons to embrace the booty to me.
