According to scientists, just three cups of coffee a day can make a women’s breasts shrink. WTF?!

Finally, an explanation for why I’m as flat chested as a 10-year-old boy: the insane amount of coffee I drink daily.

Swedish scientists surveyed nearly 300 women about their bust measurements and how many cups of coffee they drank in an average day. They found that three cups a day was enough to start making breasts shrink, with the effects increasing for every cup drunk.

They mentioned that there was 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.

Scientists said that the effect of coffee is related to its impact on estrogens – the female sex hormones.

Some substances in coffee can change a woman’s metabolism so she acquires a better configuration of various estrogens, therefore lowering the potential risk.

But women with bigger breasts that contain more mammary glands are at a higher risk, the scientists added.

Jernstroem, the chief oncologist of the study, assured us, “They will get smaller but the breasts aren’t just going to disappear.”

She also added that, “Anyone who thinks they can tell which women are coffee drinkers just from their bra measurements will be disappointed.” Adding, “The problem is that there are two measures for a bra — the cup size and the girth, so you wouldn’t be able to tell.”
