A new study sighted by your most gossipy news website, Kasatintin.com has revealed that women with a fuller bust are more likely to suffer from colds and respiratory illnesses for twice as long as their smaller chested counterparts.
The study published by the journal of Archives of Sexual Behaviour found that women with F-cup sized breasts suffered colds, coughs and flu for an average of 8.3 days, compared to women with AA-sized chests who were under the weather for only 3.8 days.
This may sound n0nsense, but there is some science behind this.
Over 400 women were interviewed and asked about how much they had suffered from colds and flu over the last three years. Based on the survey, the research concluded that: ‘Breast size was positively related to respiratory infections’.
The medical research explained that:
‘The fat in breasts weakens the immune system, which makes it harder for the body to fight respiratory infections.
Common colds can also hit those with a bigger cup size more frequently than those with smaller breasts, due to the hormone called leptin found in fat cells in the breasts, which can reduce the body’s ability to stave off illnesses in the first place.’
In case you didn’t know, leptin is produced from fat cells and the amount produced is directly related to a person’s body fat percentage.
Within the body, leptin controls one’s appetite by signalling to the brain when to stop eating and helps the brain regulate energy consumption throughout the day.
Quite interesting, another study has found that women with larger chests were 56 times more likely to finish their course of antibiotics.
Unrelated though, a new study has also found that crying between 7pm and 10pm can help one to lose body weight.
So with colds, flu and chest infections still doing the rounds this harmattan in Ghana, you know exactly what to do, especially if you’re a female who’s blessed in the chest department.
