Coffee Shrinks Breasts...

A pandemic is upon us, much worse than famine, drought and locusts, combined. The world’s boobies are SHRINKING! The cause, ordinary coffee.

A new study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, examined 300 coffee drinkers, obviously women, asking them how much coffee they drink per day and then measuring their bust size.

The data showed women who drank MORE than 3 cups of coffee a day had an average breast size 17% smaller than women who consumed LESS than 3 cups per day.

In general, women with BIGGER breasts are at higher risk.

"However, anyone who thinks they can tell which women are coffee drinkers just from their bra measurements will be disappointed,” Helena Jernstrom, from Lund University in Sweden, who led the study, told The Telegraph.

Scientists believe coffee’s impact on estrogen causes the shrinkage. And, it might affect testosterone too. Eek!

Listen, coffee isn’t healthy. Among other things, it raises blood sugar and contributes to arteriosclerosis. So ditch the coffee and SAVE the boobies!

I doubt it. I think the size has more to do with proper nutrition. If you look at some BEFORE pics of breast implant's patients, they are NOT healthy at all. I don't know if it's because plastic surgeons intentionally put their worst patients' forward, but some of those pics will make you "throw up". I'm a female, so I can say this.

This sounds like junk science. Some women have smaller breasts and never drink coffee. And also I don't think breast size is a matter of nutrition. Some of our nutritarian women have large breasts and some have small breasts. Despite your desire to ogle, some women don't want big breasts- very inconvenient they can be.

I don't think everything can be affected by nutrition. I agree with Sara. I think breast size is based on genetics.

This should be of great interest to many women. This is the first time that I have heard of it but I will spread the message around. I hear that you can eat the fruit that the coffee bean comes from and the fruit is loaded with anti-oxidants. But most of the coffee fruit is thrown away.

This study did not mention if it took into account the sugar and cream added to coffee. Maybe that is where these effects are coming from. The cream will have the growth hormones that were injected into the cow. So maybe that is the source of these effects.

Here's a peer reviewed article on the much for "junk science."
