Women With Big Butts Are Smarter and Healthier, Oxford University Study Says

Can't argue with science.

Someone tell Kim Kardashian and Beyonce Knowles to have a celebratory buck's fizz, because a study conducted by the University of Oxford reveals women with bigger bums are stereotypically smarter and healthier.

If ever there were an excuse to have another chocolate chip cookie in the hope it makes your ass bigger, this would be it.

In the study, which analysed data from 16,000 women, Oxford Unversity found that women with larger than average back sides aren't only more intelligent, but also extremely resistant to chronic illnesses.

Lead researcher of the study professor Konstantinos Manolopoulous commented: "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 study also indicated that women with larger bums tend to have lower levels of cholesterol and glucose, as well as higher levels of Omega 3 fats. Dinopectina, a hormone with anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic benefits also favours those with a big butt, as well as the adipose tissue of your bum apparently preventing cardiovascular disease.

Basically, having a little junk in your trunk is a downright good thing. HOORAY.
