Study: Pear-Shaped Booties Better Than Apple-shaped

Sunday, January 11, 2009

'The apple shape is more dangerous."
That's the actual quote that jumps out at you from a new study about disease linked to body shape.
First of all what is it with these doctors and food analogies for the human anatomy? What's next, banana-shaped penises over celery-shaped? Anyway, a new study now says it is actually healthier for a woman with a big butt and who is top heavy. Apparently it decreases the risk of diabetes. According to the study done by researchers at Harvard Medical School, hip fat and buttock fat act to block harmful deposits that thinner, skinnier women would be exposed to. It's not all good news for the pears though: Maladies such as osteoporosis, varicose veins, eating disorders, and even negative self-image perceptions such as low self-esteem are more common in women who carry extra weight in the lower body, Dr. Eric Braverman says. Dr. Braverman is an author on nutritional subjects, but has his sayers and naysayers.
