I doubt that a large number of women would actually find my suggestion attractive but I would not be surprised if there were some who would actually get excited at this post’s title. Indeed, a recent study just announced that drinking more than 3 cups of coffee a day can reduce the size of a woman’s breast.
The study was carried out by researchers at the Lund University in Sweden and it involved almost 300 women, all of whom are coffee lovers. So what is the link between breast size and coffee intake? The researchers have not been able to pinpoint the exact cause but they believe that it is due to a genetic material that about half of the women in the world possess.
This means that not every woman who drinks a lot of coffee on a daily basis should worry about shrinking breasts (a nightmare in many people’s eyes, I suppose). More so, the researchers say that women who drink a lot of coffee need not worry that their breasts will disappear overnight. It is, after all, a slow process and is not even sure to happen in every case.
My thoughts on this? Again, don’t these researchers have anything better to study? Not that I am belittling the fact that coffee just might give people with larger than usual mammary glands a respite (if they wanted one, in the first place). It’s just that there are so many other things that they could focus on, like how coffee affects heart health. Still, I suppose, this kind of news will attract a lot of readers. In any case, I shall not stop drinking my daily cups of joe.
