Fathers over 50 who are more accustomed to watching sport from the comfort of the armchair than being active themselves are more likely to live longer, a new book claims.
Men with an extra tyre around the waist and saggy moobs are more attractive to the opposite sex, better at passing on genes and in fact healthier than peers who are always in the gym.
That is the conclusion of academic Richard Bribiescas who has written his ‘pudgy dad hypothesis’ in his new work How Men Age.
“dads who are slightly chubby and loving it are more likely to be attractive to the opposite sex (due to their new layer of fat) and are also less likely to run around on their significant others (if that’s a part of the relationship agreement).” The Yale
University professor of anthropology also said mothers who had several children early in life are more likely to die younger and age quicker.
