Thicker Thighs, Lower Mortality!? An Unexpected Indicator for Muscle Mass and Longevity



BAM!!! Believe it or not, the size of your thighs could be the key to determining your lifespan!


According to a report by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, individuals who engage in higher levels of physical activity and exercise have a lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer, depression, and dementia compared to those with lower activity levels. Dr. Shoichi Ishiura emphasizes, "To live a long life, you need to develop an exercise habit. What you need is muscle. Except in cases of extreme obesity, having thicker thighs, which pump blood throughout your body, has been shown to lower mortality rates."

The Magic of Calves and the Secret of Thighs

When you walk, you naturally use your calves. This simple action improves blood circulation, allowing blood to flow into capillaries and oxygen to be distributed throughout your body. Even this alone can have significant health benefits. But there's more. In 2009, powerful data emerged indicating that thigh size is directly linked to mortality rates.


The thicker your thighs, the lower your mortality rate, while thinner thighs are associated with higher mortality rates. For example, individuals with a thigh circumference of 65 centimeters have about half the mortality rate of those with 55 centimeters. In other words, thicker thighs are a sign of regular exercise. This difference can significantly impact your lifespan!
