Women Are Evolving To Be Shorter, Fatter And Healthier

Often when people find out how short I am, they say, “Only a few inches away from being a midget.” Hardy, har, har. Instead of thinking about mashing their face with a fork, I can take solace in the fact that we short girls are more evolutionarily advanced than our tall counterparts. Although tall women are fantabulous, a new study claims that human beings are continuing to evolve and that women of the future will be shorter and heavier, with lower cholesterol and blood pressure. But why? Short, heavy, healthy women tend to have more babies. This is super interesting because it’s usually the tall, thin gals that we think of as being in demand. But that’s a story for another day. So, anyways, when these women have babies, they pass their short and stout genes on. Scientists think in the future the average woman will have kids five months earlier, go through menopause 10 months later and be two centimeters shorter.

While this doesn’t change the fact that it is nearly impossible for me to find jeans that fit, at least I have a good comeback for those height bullies. [Daily Mail UK]
