    Report: Hormones causing more male breasts

    http://news.webindia123.com/news/sho...2406&cat=World

    Female hormones found in tap water and food may be contributing to the development of breasts on male Britons, doctors said.

    The number of male breast reduction surgeries in British clinics has doubled in the past year, said the Sunday Times of London Online. Male breast growth is a medical condition called gynecomastia, and is linked to traces of the contraceptive pill in water and other food hormones used in farm animals.

    Gynecomastia causes breasts that are not due to fat. They resemble female breasts in makeup and tissue content, doctors say.

    Yanos Alexandrides, a London plastic surgeon, has been doing roughly four times the male breast reduction surgeries as he did in 2001, and believes processed fast food in particular is to blame.

    I thought with this title there were men walking around with more than 2 breasts!
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Well, there are many who have more than two nipples. I don't think that's uncommon though, it seems to be somewhat genetic in my family.

    Yeah, I knew a guy who had 4. I just pictured some dude looking in the mirror after getting out of bed every day and finding a few more every day.

    I'm waiting for the ad that claims women can increase their "size" by drinking some special imported British water with magical qualities. Of course, there will be the warning on the bottle that men should not drink it
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    And I always thought I got them because I'm fat.
