That's interesting to hear especially since chocolate is associated with such negative connotations in our culture. Reading this article made me think of another article that I read while I was doing a paper for a class I had. The article is dated June 6, 2005. It's fairly reccent, but it might not come up.
Just in case the link didn't work the article states:
"Voluptuous women are healthier than their waif-like counterparts, scientific research said today."
"A curvaceous, pear shape means a woman is more likely to have stores of adiponectin, a protein hormone which has anti-inflammatory effects and is associated with reduced risk of heart attacks."
And here's the best part.
"Danish scientists found the ideal measurements for a woman are at least size 14
with hips of 40 inches or more."
Even though it begins with a pro-plus mindset, the article goes sour by 'hinting' that full figured women are unhealthy. Please, gimme a break. But what's this have to do with chocolate? To reach the ideal measurements of a size 14 or more.........eat chocolate
. To quote Melanie, "not only does it enchance the beauty of a curvy figure, but it keeps the body healthy as well." Now that's a double plus.
