It is a known fact that women always act as a reserve for vital nutrients for their newborn babies. Researchers believe that this finding also explains why some women find it very hard to get rid of excess fat from their buttocks or legs. According to public health epidimiologist at the university, Professor Will Lassek: “The fat in these areas is a depot for building a baby’s brain.. You need lots of fat to make a nervous system and the fats in these areas are also enriched in DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) which is a particularly important component in the human brain.”
Women with large quantities of such fats in target can presumably produce more intelligent children because the fat cells from these above mentioned areas are mobilised during pregnancy to allow a baby’s brain to soak up their enriching properties. Dr Lassek published these findings in his recent book “Why Women Need Fat”.
