Coffee = Smaller Breasts?

A team of Swedish scientists lead by Helena Jernström at Lund University found that drinking 3+ cups of  coffee per day resulted in a reduction in breast size for women expressing the CYP1A2*1F genotype. It is believed that this genotype is present in about 50% of women, and in addition to reducing breast volume coffee also correlated with a lower risk of breast cancer. It is believed that it is caffeine’s impact on estrogen levels that causes these effects. The full paper can be found here.
