Size of Your Thigh

The size of thigh has been a taboo topic, especially in the conversation among asians. But as a matter of fact, the size of thighs has already been a great reference topic in the olden days in the history as far as Chinese are concerned.

Ever since very very long time ago, when a female owns a huge size of thigh, the Chinese would certainly referring the huge size of thigh to the great ability of giving labor. They strongly believed that the huge size of thigh in a female is a great indicator on how many children the female would have in the near future, and of course, such assumption is still considered to be true to some people. Is there any scientific evidence to this? Well, we are not really sure about that.

Talking about scientific evidence relating to the size of thighs, here's a piece of news to reveal. Researchers had published a study in, about a shocking news relating to the size of thighs of individuals with certain diseases, and even death.

The research reported that men and women whose thighs are less than 60cm in circumference have a higher risk of premature death as well as heart disease. Apart from that, individuals whose thighs are greater than 60cm in circumference have no additional protective effect.

From the results of their studies, the reason why individuals with relatively smaller thighs are related closely with premature death as well as heart disease, is because those with smaller thighs normally have indications that they have lower muscle mass in the region. The researchers then explained that this could be very problematic as it would next lead to reduction of insulin sensitivity, and eventually triggering the occurrence of heart disease.
