Are curves better for a woman’s intelligence?
What have the curves on a woman got to do with her intelligence? Plenty!! If you are to believe a recent study conducted on more than 16000 women and girls.
Researchers found out that the bigger the difference between a woman’s waist and hips the better they perform in IQ tests and also their children consistently performed better. So what’s the reason? Researchers writing in Evolution and Human Behavior give the reason to be due to more Omega-3 fatty acids on a woman’s hips. Omega-3 fatty acids are very important in neuronal development and play an important role in the development of fetal brain cells too. However the confounding effects of social class and diet are to be explained convincingly.
Till further research men are better off looking for a partner whose waist to hip ratio is ideal aesthetically and also for better intelligence in both the woman and the progeny.
