coffee shrinks boobs | Somewhere in Middle America

Besides the fact that tea is chock full of antioxidants, here’s another good reason why I should switch from coffee to tea.

Scientists have discovered that drinking just three cups of coffee a day can make women’s breasts shrink.

According to Swedish researchers who surveyed nearly 300 women, three cups a day was enough to start making breasts shrink, with the effects increasing for every additional cup.

Experts say there is a clear link between drinking coffee and smaller breasts as around half of all women possess a gene that has been shown to link breast size to coffee intake.

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