Did you know that the shape of your legs, your hands, your arms can reveal a lot about your health? Indeed, several studies have indicated that the shape of certain parts of your body can reveal a lot about your health. Here is the list:
A British study published on the BBC News website has reported that women with short legs have a higher risk of developing liver disease. The study was conducted at the University of Bristol on a group of 4000 women aged between 60 and 79 years. The research was done on the length of the legs and other factors such as genetics.
They discovered that the legs varying in length between 50 and 73cm are at greater risk of developing liver disease, because they produce enzymes that can simultaneously be beneficial and bad for the body. Therefore, the size plays a crucial role with respect to the production of these enzymes. It is therefore important to pay attention to diet and avoid alcohol.
The size of the bra
A recent study conducted by the Canadian Medical Association showed that women who have more than 20 years and who wear bras with a cup size D have 1.5% risk of suffering from type 2 diabetes, in contrast to the women who have a less generous chest.
Indeed, the scientists found that fat cells in the breasts are sensitive to hormones and cause insulin resistance. An accumulation of fat disrupts the role of insulin which aims to regulate the level of sugar in the blood. Therefore, it is advisable to adopt a healthy diet and regular physical activity to avoid this kind of disease.
