    • 7 Things You Probably Didn’t Know about Breasts.
    • A woman’s breasts swell during sex.
      According to the British Medical
      Journal women experience up to 25%
      of swelling in their breasts when having
      sex. This acts as a symbol of feminity as
      well as in looking seductive.
    • Breastfeeding can actually
      help you lose weight.
      According to the American Journal of
      Clinical Nutrition, women who breastfeed
      from about three to six months have
      experienced a significant amount of fat
      lossin their own bodies.
    • Women who are 50 years
      and up have a higher risk
      of developing breast cancer.
      As you age, you would have a higher risk
      of developing the big C on your breasts.
      As women age, cellular mutation
      increases. Early diagnosis is actually the
      number one preventive measure.
    • Consuming milk may actually
      lead to breast cancer.
      Consuming milk which is highly suspected
      of causing breast cancer includes soy milk
      which contains isoflavones. Milk which is
      safe includes rice milk, goat’s milk and
      almond milk.
    • The healthier you are,
      the better it would be for
      the health of your breasts.
      These days, it is quite easy to succumb
      into leading a sedentary lifestyle because
      everything seems to be easily within
      reach. There is a link between obesity and
      breast cancer.
    • Self Examination is important.
      Women who religiously self-examine
      their breasts are less likely to die of breast
      cancer, as compared to women who do
      not perform a breast self examination.
    • Wearing an underwire bra
      may be one of the many
      causes of breast cancer.
      For you to prevent cancer from happening
      you need to have a healthy lymphatic
      system which is blocked when you wear
      an underwire bra & the cancer-causing
      waste materials are not eliminated from
      the body.
