According to a study by Oxford University, women with larger butts tend to be smarter and healthier.

According to ABC News, the results found that women with bigger buttocks are more resistant to chronic illness and are less likely to have diabetes or heart problems. They tend to have lower cholesterol levels and also are more likely to produce the hormones that metabolize sugar.

What’s more, big butts require more Omega 3 fatty acids, which are proven to catalyze brain development. The adipose tissue also captures harmful fatty particles and prevents cardiovascular disease.

“Professor Konstantinos Manolopoulos, who leads the team at the University of Oxford, says that women with more fat on the buttocks have lower levels of cholesterol and glucose,” ABC News reported.
