TO ALL LADIES: Drinking Coffee Might Be Shrinking Your Breasts!

In October of 2008, The Telegraph (a popular source for international news) came out with an article claiming that drinking coffee could affect breast size

They said that those who drink at least 3 cups of coffee a day may notice a little shrinking in their breasts. 

According to the article, researchers invited 300 women to participate in a study linking a woman's caffeine intake to her breast size. 

The results were reportedly published in a British cancer journal. Based on the study, researchers discovered that taking in at least 3 cups of coffee a day could lead to a smaller breast size

They said it was all thanks to this gene mutation that about half of the women tested carried. This gene is apparently responsible for the supposed link between caffeine and breast size. 

According to Helena Jernstrom of Sweden's Lund University, "Drinking coffee can have a major effect on breast size."

However, she also added the following:

"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."

"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 wouldn't be able to tell."

The article from The Telegraph also claimed the following, however:

"Drinking caffeine regularly appeared to reduce the risk of breast cancer among the volunteers, who had been specifically selected from families at high risk of contracting the disease."

So based on the sources, coffee intake may have an effect on breast size but it apparently has its own set of positive effects too.
