One less coffee for a bigger breast size?

There is no need to resort to cups, underwire and push-ups, or to cosmetic surgery or hormonal treatments: to get a slightly more abundant décolleté, just reduce the daily ration of caffeine . This was revealed by a team of Swedish researchers from Lund University. According to the study, carried out over a 10-year period, it is in particular the assiduous consumers, who drink three cups of coffee a day or more, who risk a less bra size . The tests were carried out on about 300 young women whose bust circumference and habitual consumption of caffeine were recorded. Helena Jernstroem, research coordinator, noted a clear link between the two: higher doses of coffee correspond to smaller breasts. The reason is probably due to a particular genotype (CYP1A2! F – C allele) which is part of the genetic heritage of half of the Swedish female population: in women who have it, this particular relationship between caffeine and bra size would be triggered. A consolation for the avid drinkers who put their cleavage at risk: women accustomed to a moderately high consumption of caffeine are less likely to develop breast cancer and if it does, women who drink coffee have shown a better response to treatment with tamoxifen. “Anyone who thinks they can guess how much coffee a woman drinks based on her bra size will be disappointed – specifies the researcher. – Ladies can rest assured, their breasts will not disappear overnight ”. Therefore, in those carriers of the modified allele and who drink large quantities of coffee, no scalpels and silicone but can take a cappuccino or an espresso less.
