Body scans- 250 lbs. vs. 120 lbs.

Sunday, September 15, 2013

I saw this on the I *censored* Love Science Facebook page and thought it was super interesting. It's a body scan of a 250 pound woman vs. one of a 120 pound woman. Just looking at how the hip and ankle bones sit really blew my mind! Anyways- thought I'd share :)

    All day, I kept coming back to this and looking again.
    I feel like #1 most days even though I don't weigh nearly that much.

    If that doesn't cause someone to change their life style, then nothing will

    Interesting! I think it looks like the scans are taken with the women lying down, being told to keep legs and arms very straight. This could explain the tilted joints and muscles of the heavier person compared to the skinny one. It would be interesting to see a similar scan of heavier and lighter built women standing upright..

    Very interesting funny how the bones are even so different along with the organs and the muscle and tendons.
