PCI NEWS:-When’s the last time you stripped down and took a good long look in the mirror? Don’t worry, we’re not going to lead you through a self-love mantra (not this time, anyway). Rather, scientists are saying that certain physical characteristics may indicate your risk of certain illnesses like heart disease or cancer. Of course, correlation is not causation, but it is a fun excuse to take a head-to-toe inventory of your health.

Let’s start at the bottom-your bottom, that is. This chart gives us reasons to love curves south of the border: Ladies with J.Lo booties have a lower risk of type 2 diabetes (and a much higher chance of killing it on the dance floor).

And people with larger thighs have a lower risk of heart disease, while those with tiny calves have a higher risk of stroke.

But not all fat is good for you, particularly when you carry it around your abdomen. Excess fat around the belly is linked with kidney and heart disease among other things while being very overweight increases your risk of gall bladder disease, the data shows. However, having strong muscles in your core lowers your risk of cancer.
