If you can’t squeeze yourself inside your skinny jeans then just let it be like that, as scientists from Harvard Medical School in America says that special types of fats which accumulates around the hips and bottom may help protect against the risk of developing diabetes type 2.
But all fats are not good enough, for eg. fats that accumulates around the stomach, known as visceral fat, can raise a person’s risk of diabetes and heart disease.
That means that only people with fat deposits in the buttocks and hips, are likely to be less prone to these disorders, concluded the research at Harvard Medical School.
According to researchers fat found commonly around the lower areas, known as subcutaneous fat, or fat that collects under the skin, helps to improve the sensitivity of the hormone insulin. Insulin is responsible for regulating blood sugar and therefore a big bottom might offer some protection against diabetes.
The study is published in the journal Cell Metabolism.
However, the message of this research would totally reverse the key message which was based on hard scientific evidences and advised people to maintain proportionate healthy weight through a balanced low fat diet, to reduce the risk of developing diabetes type 2.
At present the team is busy in locating the helpful substances in subcutaneous fat, as they could help developing drugs.
