Well we won't argue with this bad boy! 

The research was published in a journal called Cell Metabolism, and the results indicated that when fat is stored in the lower half of the body it doesn't travel to vital organs like the heart and lungs.

In simple terms, the findings means that not as much fat is released into the bloodstream, so it doesn't go on to cause as many complications further down the track.

It's important to note that the research conducted at the University of Tubingen, Germany does not apply to people who are overweight. They used MRI scans and regular health checks to observe fat distribution in patients, and found the study applies to men as well but is most prominent in women.
