  • Some latest coffee news

    Did anyone else see this article? :-?

    Somewhat inconclusive evidence in my opinion... but still an interesting read whilst sipping on your favourite beverage.

    Happy Sipping.


    Three cups of coffee a dat makes breasts shrink - study

    DRINKING just three cups of coffee a day can make womens breasts shrink, researchers say. Nearly 300 women were surveyed about their bust measurements and how many cups of coffee they drank in an average day.

    According to the Swedish researchers, three cups a day was enough to start making breasts shrink, with the effects increasing for every cup drunk.

    They said there was a clear link between drinking coffee and smaller breasts, as about half of women possessed a gene shown to link breast size to coffee intake.

    "Drinking coffee can have a major effect on breast size," said Helena Jernstroem, a lecturer in experimental oncology at Lund University in Sweden.

    "Coffee-drinking women do not have to worry their breasts will shrink to nothing overnight. They will get smaller, but the breasts arent just going to disappear.

    "However, anyone who thinks they can tell which women are coffee drinkers just from their bra measurements will be disappointed. The problem is that there are two measures for a bra - the cup size and the girth - so you wouldnt be able to tell."

    It was not all bad news for women, as the researchers also found that regular hits of caffeine could help to cut the risk of breast cancer.

    I read yesterday that eating licorice can reduce the levels of testosterone in men.

    So fairs fair.

      Unmitigated rubbish if you ask me!

      Ive gone from maybe one Latte a day two months ago to three cups a day now and my boobs are getting bigger (or it could have something to do with the weight Im putting on because of all the milk Im drinking!) :

      Still, a 6910 and 0480 and lots of milk and fresh beans would probably be a lot cheaper (and more enjoyable) than having to undergo breast reduction surgery, I reckon - now if only that applied to me!

            From what Big Steve posted it didnt say it was a before and after study.

            How the heck can you come to that conclusion from a survey like that?

              This sentence is making no sense to me. Is there a link? Or only in the women with the specific gene?

                Hmm, some further facts...

                Ageing also reduces breast size, and all coffee drinkers eventually die.

                As one publisher said, "Its all a storm in a D cup" ;D

                  It only gives half of the story but the sample size is only 460 - perhaps not big enough to be significant and doesnt take into account that all the women are from one location so there may be other factors influencing the outcome


                  Coffee May Shrink Breasts, Prevent Cancer

                  In a recent study by Swedens Lund University, researcher found that about half of the women participating had a gene that links breast size and coffee consumption.

                  Healthy, premenopausal women with the gene who drink three or more cups of coffee a day have smaller breasts. Those women also have a lower risk of breast cancer.
