‘Spare Tire’ Might Protect Men During Car Accident

`New research suggests that a few extra pounds can be good for you — if you’re male and unlucky enough to be in a car accident, that is.

Moderately overweight males are more likely to survive serious car accidents than either the thin or the very fat. Apparently, a bit of extra padding — but not too much — provides extra protection, according to the study. [..]

For reasons that aren’t clear, women don’t get the same protection from extra weight: Being fat, thin or in-between didn’t affect their likelihood of dying in a car accident, the study found.’
