Girls are missing


A study suggests Indian women in the UK are aborting unborn daughters so they can have more boys.

The Oxford University study suggests 1,500 girls are “missing” from the birth statistics in England and Wales from 1990 to 2005 and this could be due to sex selective abortions.

Ultrasound test is illegal in India since the early 1980s but still Doctors are carrying out the tests in closed doors to determine sex and aborting the female fetuses. As per BBC- an estimated seven million girls have gone missing from India’s population over the last 25 years. As I have already pointed out in my previous article that sex selective abortion is in practice in some states in India. We can understand the reasons for Indian couples which may be cultural, social, economic or illiteracy but it is really surprise to learn that UK Indian women are travelling to India for such sex selective abortions. BBC says: It is impossible to say how many British women are traveling to India for such terminations.

It’s an awful situation. Another kind of outsourcing to India? Doctors, clinics may be happy in such out sourcing but if this goes on, one day situation may come when there will be nobody to bear male offspring.

Another reason why men like Curvy women

It is a known fact that curvaceous women live longer and that men find them more attractive but the new research suggests that they are also cleverer and give birth to brainier children.

According to a new study by Scientists, found that the women with a curvy figure are brighter and give birth to brainier kids. That’s why the men find curvaceous women more attractive?

The study also discovered that curvaceous women give birth to more intelligent children because hip fat contains polyunsaturated fatty acids (Omega-3) critical for the development of the fetus’s brain. They suggest that the fat around fuller hips and thighs contains higher levels of Omega3 fatty acids, which are essential for the growth of the brain during pregnancy.

The researchers believe that the results shed light on why many men find curvy women more alluring. Researchers found that those women with a greater difference between the waist and hips scored considerably higher on the tests, as did their children. The researchers say that the ideal ratio for an intelligent curvy woman lies between 0.6 and 0.7.

The team said that their findings may also explain why children born to teenage mothers do worse in cognitive tests – because their mothers may have had deficient stores of the best fatty acids. The study noted, however, that children born to teenage girls with traditional hourglass figures seemed to be protected from this phenomenon and fared better in tests.

Several scientific studies have shown that men find women with a greater waist-hip differential the most attractive. However, no study so far has yet been able to elucidate this.

So far, it was not known that Omega-3 fatty acids are stored under the ‘curves’ of the women. man too never knew why they are attracted so much to curvier women. Nature guides us correctly, for right kind of things in life. The secret is out now, so select a curvy life partner for brighter kids and the girls, you too try to be curvy for being mom of brainy children tomorrow.
