The Daily Telegraph (January 6, 2009)
- "Big butts could be a health plus
- "Fat may protect against type 2 diabetes
- "Lopez, Beyonce on to a good thing"
"New research, published in the journal Cell Metabolism, suggests...."
Last month I posted a more-than-micro review of a LiveScience article about an anthropologist's notion that women who look like men are better off when the going gets tough.
Using Research and Numbers in Science: What a Concept!The Daily Telegraph article discusses something very different from that anthropologist's science: This science is the kind that uses research and numbers.
There seems to be a lot more to learn, but it looks like it's not just where the fat is that makes a difference: it's the kind of fat.
The Daily Telegraph isn't advocating obesity: but I think this article shows that, despite what fashion designers and some academics seem to think, it's okay for grown women to look like grown women.
