During all the times and epochs the question of the beautiful shape of feminine body has remained the up-to-date one. Another thing is that the standards of a woman’s beauty varied. Nowadays everybody lies the women who are in a good physical shape. But before you will torture yourself and keep to a masochistic diet stop and think for a bit.
If we have a brief look upon the history of a history of science and technology we will see that though the great progress has been done a lot of fallacies have been taking place for a long period of time. For example in the seventeenth century the substance containing mercury was supposed to treat deep wounds. For more than a hundred years the people thought that a plain fly has eight feet while it actually has six ones. The fallacies connected with food still remain existing in people’s minds. All the people have apparently the same bodies which turn out to work in a completely different ways.
