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.

I'm greatly offended by her "I don't give a damn" attitude. Obama is the same way..
Dr. Buttless Pachysandra.
There was a whole thread about it here.
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.
My butt is Bogus!
Hillary will live forever.
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.
Yea, but Michelle really has belly fat. She squeezes it down to her butt with those huge compression belts.
Woo hoo! I’m healthy!!
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.
First wookie - AHHH my eyes. God she’s disgusting!
Great, now my fat is in the wrong place.
I have no idea what any of that means....
Me too. Doesn’t matter how small I’ve been even when I was still a Jr size 5 in my late 30’s it’s always been back there. We’ve started to ease my 14yo niece that she has also inheirted the butt. She as tiny as a stick my has the butt. LOL
