Fat thighs and big hips could lower chances of early death, says new study

A new study found that having broad hips or large hips could help a person to live longer while having a big waist does the opposite.

The researchers looked into data for more than 2.5 million people between three and 24 years.

The new ground-breaking study was recently published in the British Medical Journal.

Dr Tauseef Ahmad Khan is the study author from the department of nutritional sciences at the University of Toronto in Canada.

The study also found that every extra 4 inches (10cm) of waist size was associated with an 11% higher chance of dying prematurely.

Dr Khan said: “People should be more concerned about their waist rather than focusing only on weight or BMI.

“Waist is a better indicator of belly fat and while one cannot target where one loses fat from, losing weight through diet and exercise will also reduce waist and therefore belly fat.

“Belly fat is the fat that is stored around the organs in the abdomen and its excess is linked to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

“Therefore, having more belly fat can increase the risk of dying from these diseases.”

However, Dr Khan says hip fat is considered beneficial and thigh size is an indicator of the amount of muscle.

Their findings suggest that thigh and hip circumference were “inversely associated with all-cause morality risk”.

Each 10cm increase in hip circumference was associated with a 10% lower risk of death from all causes.

Burna Boy shades Bia, says she’s been in his DM since 2018

Published

A particular U.S artiste going by the name—Bia—claimed not being able to recognise the facial/physical appearance of Nigeria’s Top 3 music power, that is, Wizkid, Burna Boy and Davido while on a live video on Instagram. To say the least, she did trend yesterday but not for the right reasons as she was subjected to a lot of trolls from the fanbase of these music artistes on Twitter.

All through yesterday, neither Burna Boy, Wizkid nor Davido seemed fazed by her statement but as of today’s (Saturday) evening, Burna Boy is back on his bully on microblogging app, Twitter, boastfully pointing out the flaw in her statement. He tweeted in pidgin English: “That babe wey nor know our face don dey my dms since 2018 o.

After Burna’s evident shady tweet of Bia, further evidence has come forth, even showing her i.e Bia commenting on an IG post by Burna Boy in 2018 whom she claimed not to know by physical appearance.

A close associate of Wizkid named Tufab is said to have been the one sent to receive the package containing Wizkid’s 2021 Grammys plaque but instead of delivering it to Wiz as expected, he opted to take the photo and post it on the ‘gram for the whole world to see. He is being accused of showing “no respect” and lacking “integrity” according to Wizkid’s manager, Jada “P” Pollock.

Since Wizkid won the award for appearing on Beyoncé led “Black Skin Girl” video, fans have been anticipating the day he would flaunt recieving the plaque online but that day did not come as expected as it was a close associate (i.e Tufab) who took it upon himself to show off the Grammys plaque rather than Wizkid himself; at such Manager and baby mama to Wizkid’s third son, took to her Twitter account to air out her opinion on the matter, she tweeted: “Some people in life honestly have no respect & integrity. “Why would you be asked to deliver something and then take it upon yourself to open the box & post it. Where is the respect! . . . Just know this wasn’t COOL! @Tufab

Some hours later, Wizkid via his Instagram Story posted the plaque himself probably in a bid to clear the rift between Tufab and Jada P. Tufab himself put out a tweet assuring everyone everything is cool between him and Wizkid:
