Big bottom keeps diabetes away?
London: A big bottom is good for you because it raises the levels of good cholesterol that protects against hardening of arteries and also cuts the risk of diabetes, say researchers.
Scientists also claim people with lots of moles are years younger biologically than those with mark-free skin. They may retain their youthful looks for longer and could also be at lower risk of a host of age-related diseases, such as heart disease or osteoporosis, reports dailymail.co.uk.

Studies have also linked short legs to higher levels of liver and heart disease and diabetes.
