Current Headlines: Drinking Coffee Can Shrink Your Ta-Ta’s…

From UPI.Com, Science Department

LUND, Sweden, Oct. 19 (UPI) — Drinking a lot of coffee reduces the size of many women’s breasts, a Swedish researcher finds.

Helena Jernstrom, an oncologist at Lund University in southern Sweden, said that the effect is the result of a gene that about half of women possess, The Local reported.

“Drinking coffee can have a major effect on breast size,” she said.

Jernstrom became interested in the subject because of research that has shown that large-breasted women are more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer, while downing at least three cups of coffee a day reduces cancer risk. She decided to look for a correlation directly between drinking coffee and breast size and found one.

Her study tracked 270 women. Jernstrom’s results were published in the British Journal of Cancer.

    Well I can’t blame my wee one’s on coffee since I can’t stand the taste.

    I drink tons of coffee. So, that’s good for my health prospects but bad for my flat chest, huh 🙂 Ya know, I think I’m okay with that. If I had to choose one over the other, I’d choose small ‘ta-ta’s’ over having breast cancer.

    Interesting article, Sher.

    ‘I must be drinking the wrong kind of coffee…’ she says as she contemplates how long its been since she’s seen her bellybutton without a mirror. 🙂

    This is an interesting article. I, personally, am skeptical. :sigh:
