Lower Body Fat May Protect Against Disease

Lower Body Fat May Protect Against Disease

Is fat around the thighs and around the backside healthy? It’s an interesting study. It’s in the journal Nature; The International Journal of Obesity, and it was done in the United Kingdom. The review finds that fat around your hind can reduce the harmful effects of inflammation leading to protection against disease. This fat takes longer to build and to break down than upper body fat. The breakdown of abdominal fat releases factors linked to heart disease and diabetes. The authors envision a future where doctors might deliberately increase lower body fat to protect against disease. It’s a little dramatic, but what it really tells us is that certain people are going to have fat in different areas. But if you’re someone who carries a little extra weight in your thighs and buttocks, it may not be that unhealthy.
