Coffee and Boob Shrinkage

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

I open up my email account to find that, not one, not two, but THREE emails warning me of this...

Coffee Can Shrink the Size of Boobs
London, Oct 18: Here’s some bad news for ladies who can't get through the day without their coffee fix: the caffeine-fuelled drink can shrink the size of women’s boobs, a shocking new research has revealed.

The beverage, which is best known for keeping people alert and sobering up drunks, has caused a stir by suggesting women who drink more than three cups a day could see their bra size drop.

Tests by cancer researchers found half of all women have a gene linking breast size to coffee intake.

Nearly 300 women were quizzed but Helena Jernstroem, of Lund University, said women should not worry too much.

“Coffee-drinking women do not have to worry their breasts will shrink to nothing overnight. They will get smaller, but the breasts aren’t just going to disappear,” the Daily Star quoted her, as saying.

“Anyone who thinks they can tell which women are coffee drinkers just from their bra measurements will be disappointed.

“There are two measurements for a bra – the cup size and the girth, so you wouldn’t be able to tell,” she added.

While caffeine may shrink women’s breasts, the reaction is the reverse for coffee-slurping blokes – it can make their “boobs” swell.

On the plus side, the study showed regular hits of caffeine reduce the risk of women developing breast cancer.

Hmmmm? I think my friends are trying to tell me something. I have a daily 2-3 pot coffee habit... No wonder I have no boobs!!! Oh well, I love my coffee and I am not giving it up. I'll be boob-less ... well except for my friends who are Boobs! ;)

Now they're gone...

    My breasts left me when I lost all this weight. Still wearing it on my thighs, though.

    That's gotta be a hoax email. Otherwise, I wonder if it works for men because I could use some reduction in that area and I drink plenty of coffee.

    Since my total coffee intake is about one cup a YEAR, my "girls" should be the size of Dolly Parton's! emoticon

    That is so funny but I don't believe it. My boobs are the same size they have always been and my coffee drinking varies from 2-6 cups a day. LOL. So I won't lose any sleep over this. Thanks for giving me a good chuckle.

    I thought I was the only one with such an extreme coffee habit!!
    (My mug holds 32 ounces!)
    I drink at least 3 mugs a day, and 4 or 5, if I mix Bailey's in it in the evenings!!
    I'm still a C-cup, so am not going to panic just yet!!
    ...But thanks for the words of caution!!

    PS~My hubby gets nervous when the coffee canister gets low...He says he can't imagine what I would be like without my morning IV dosage, and he NEVER wants to find out!

    You are too funny!!!!

    Keep up the investigative work and keep bringing us such interesting news items. They're much better than all of the economic and political news we're getting recently!
