Study Finds Women Becoming More Beautiful Over Evolution

Study Finds Women Becoming More Beautiful Over Evolution

Are beautiful women at an advantage even when it comes to bearing babies? A new study by a researcher at the University of Helsinki found that women are becoming more attractive through evolution, while men remain the same.

Based on the research, it appears that women deemed to be more aesthetically pleasing have up to 16 percent more children than less-attractive women and a higher proportion of those children are female. The female offspring then tend to be better looking as well, and they repeat the pattern as they procreate. The study also showed that more attractive parents were 26 percent less likely to have sons. Perhaps, we'll see a lot more lil ladies when the Victoria's Secret Angels give birth this Fall. What's your take on this report?
