Turns out that having a bigger booty has a bigger bonus. Women with larger rear ends have smarter kids, according to science.
Scientists from the University of Pittsburgh recently looked at the development of babies’ brains, and they discovered something pretty interesting about a woman's behind.
The development of babies brains depended on fat supplies located in their mum’s behinds and thighs, and the amount stored in those areas could directly influence a child’s intelligence.
Author of Why Women Need Fat, William D. Lassek, elaborated on the idea to The Sunday Times; "The fat in these areas is a depot for building a baby's brain. It looks as if women have evolved to accumulate these fats and hold on to them — until a baby arrives. This is similar to the levels seen in bears going into hibernation or whales living in cold arctic seas."
Therefore in summary, women with bigger butts and bigger thighs could have smarter children.
