Drinking coffee can, over time, make a woman’s breasts shrink

A Swedish scientist doing cancer research has discovered that drinking coffee can, over time, make a woman’s breasts shrink. The results, published in the British Journal of Cancer, concluded that 50% of women are susceptible to caffeine-related breast shrinkage. Women with larger breasts were more likely to be affected.
Women who drink just three cups of coffee a day can eventually go down several cups in bra size. This decrease occurs because of how caffeine affects estrogen levels.
Men are not immune to the effects of long-term caffeine consumption either, although, as it turns out, caffeine has rather a different impact on men. When men consume large amounts of caffeine over time, it causes their chest to grow, creating hefty “man boobs.” The professional researchers who authored the study decided that “man boobs” wasn’t really a scientific terms, so they coined the term “moobs” instead.
The study did have some more serious results as well, including the supposition that certain substances in coffee can modify a woman’s metabolism in a way that will make her more resistant to tumors. The paper also suggests that women who have larger breasts may be more susceptible to breast cancer in general, due to the presence of additional mammary glands.
