A new scientific study concludes that women with bigger breasts are more likely to get cancer than those with a smaller bra size.
The study, which was conducted by a European research agency called 23andMe and recently published in BMC Medical Genetics, is the result of a questionnaire completed by more than 16,000 women of European ancestry.
“Some studies have found that larger chest size as a young woman is associated with a slightly higher risk for cancer,” says lead author Nicholas Eriksson. “The genetic factors we found support this concept that chest size and cancer are related.”
Although suspected for years, the results of this study, conducted recently, may not take into account new factors which may cause cancer of the breasts, such as diet and environmental conditions. so more study and research is likely to continue.
These results seem to be confined to women with a naturally larger chest size. they don’t appear to conclude that women who undergo plastic surgery, such as augmentation, are more likely to get cancer.
