Fat Butts May Be Healthy
Live Science ^ | Jan 12, 2009 | Jeanna Bryner

Posted on 01/12/2010 8:53:28 AM PST by decimon

Having junk in your trunk is healthier than a spare tire around the gut, new research suggests. The extra padding on the backside and thighs could even help to protect against disease.

The results come from a review that summarizes various studies on the health effects of different fat stores in the body, particularly around the hips and thighs.

"The fact that body fat's distribution is quite important for your health has been known for some time now," said lead researcher Konstantinos Manolopoulos of the University of Oxford in England. But this new article summarizes a body of research showing that such hip and thigh fat can help to reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease. The review also suggests a mechanism for conveying those benefits.

The next step is to figure out how our bodies decide where to store fat, say, in the stomach versus the butt. "Once this is understood then one could think about therapeutic approaches to make use of that," Manolopoulos told LiveScience. "Maybe to make use [of it] in a preventive way by redistributing the fat."

Manolopoulos and his colleagues detail their findings this week in the International Journal of Obesity.

Fat not created equal

When looking through the studies, the researchers found that not all fat is created equal.

Having junk in your trunk is healthier than a spare tire around the gut, new research suggests.

When I saw the headline I thought "then I'll live forever" but then when I saw the first line that says the spare tire around the gut is bad, my hopes quickly fell.

Wow, talk about your cause and effect disconnect.

How ones bodies store fat is largely genetic.. some folks in their backsides, and legs, others in their bellies.. to conclude that finding folks who don’t have guts, but have fat thighs and butts and are less prone to certain diseases than others, does mean you can redirect a body that tends to store fat at the gut, to store it in the backside and then that person will see the same health benefits noticed in those who do that naturally.

What idiots they have writing articles today, the more appropriate conclusion would be, finding what about someones genetic makeup that causes them to store fat in the butt rather than the gut may help researchers discover what else about those genetic traits gives them the added health benefits and be able to utilize that to help others at risk. But simply stating moving someones fat to their butt from their gut will defacto give them protection is idiotic, and wholey rediculous.

That’s not a conclusion you can draw from this study at all.

Excellent observations. I think people are just having a little fun with an absurd article, though.

On the other hand, I’m feeling a little smug, since I could weigh 10 pounds, and 8 of it still would follow me out of the room, lol.
