Study finds curvy women and their babies extra smart: Omega-3s seen as key
Periodically, the US Dept. of Health and Human Services conducts The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) among American adults and children.
A new analysis of NHANES data has produced intriguing new findings that tie women’s body shapes to their mental performance and their children’s brain power. Omega Women’s body shapes have a relationship with how they store those healthy omega-3’s we are always hearing about on tv shows.
Are you an omega woman?
What do “omega women” look like? The new findings suggest that in terms of body stores of omega-3s, the ideal waist-hip ratio (WHR) falls between 0.6 and 0.7.
To score yourself, divide your waist measurement by your hip measurement.
Singer-actress-enterpreneur Jennifer Lopez is a good example of the omega women ideal: her waist measures 26 inches and her hips measure 39 inches, giving her a waist-hip ratio of 0.66.
Hollywood provides three other examples of smart and healthily curvaceous women.
Actress-producer Salma Hayek has a waist-hip ratio of 0.67.
Oscar-winning actress Rachel Weisz, with a waist-hip ratio of 0.66 is a graduate of Oxford University.
Screen star Jayne Mansfield – who played the “dumb blonde” in 1960s-era movies – possessed an astonishingly low waist-hip ratio of 0.47.
She also had a super-genius level IQ, studied physics at Southern Methodist University, spoke five languages, and was a classically trained pianist and violinist.
