I’m always amazed when science proves something that was so obvious to begin with.
Being too skinny or too fat is unhealthy, but having a little padding is good. Well yes didn’t we already know that? If the traditional definition of beauty is any indicator (voluptuous women) then this is really no huge surprise. It’s effectively survival of the fittest at its best. People who are more rounded along the edges just tend to do better (birth children, survive winter, etc), nothing new right?
It’s like this article tells us there’s no such thing as safe cocaine. Really? We needed a study to prove this?
Of course I support scientific research, development and advancement, and I suppose it makes sense to back up any allegation with proof, but sometimes it just seems like a big overkill, no?
