Dangerous curves ahead
Curvier women 'will live longer'.
Curvy women are more likely to live longer than their slimmer counterparts, researchers have found. Institute of Preventative Medicine in Copenhagen researchers found those with wider hips also appeared to be protected against heart conditions. Women with a hip measurement smaller than 40 inches, or a size 14 (US size 12) would not have this protection, they said. The researchers say hip fat contains a beneficial natural anti-inflammatory. They said this anti-inflammatory, called adiponectin, prevents arteries swelling up and becoming blocked.
