By Suparna Chakaraborthy

The latest concern is the chest expansion which is being noticed in women. The demand for super size bra's have touched the sky. UK Scientists are studying the reason and have come up with few conclusions.


Some experts are of the view that the reason for the chest expansion is an increase in man-made chemicals in the environment. Agricultural pesticides and plastics are known to upset hormonal development if they get into the food chain.

Dr Marilyn Glenville, a nutritionist specialising in women"s health, revealed, “Oestrogen gives women their characteristic shape as they go through puberty. It"s what causes the stimulation in breast tissue, so if we"ve got extra oestrogen coming in from the environment that"s going to have an effect on breast size."

This may reduce the practice of breast implant but the worry is that it's not good if cells start to mutate. If precautions are not taken now, it might get worse.

Dr Joanna Scurr, said: “Breasts are getting bigger but it"s not just because we"re getting heavier. We looked at 300 British women over four years and found an increase in the size of the average bosom, not just in women who are fat."


This reason of bigger Breast size, may also effect the child born to affected women, thus passing on the disease to the next generation. This needs, quick attention.
