Wider Hips Protects against Metabolic Disorders Such as Diabetes

Adrian Cameron from Deakin University, study co-author, stated that, "We knew that higher hip circumference was protective against metabolic diseases such as diabetes as well as death…. However, we did not know that taking waist and hip circumference into account separately (as opposed to using the waist-to-hip ratio) would reveal such a powerful association between obesity and mortality…. In other words, a person with big hips and a small waist is at the lowest end of the risk scale and people with small hips and a large waist are at the highest risk." International Journal of Epidemiology, Jan. 2012
