Coffee is a wonderful drink that keeps everyone awake while working or studying. It smells great and tastes terrific, whether it is homemade or if it came from a cafe.
However, a scientific study recently uncovered two effects of drinking coffee. Find out these two discoveries by reading the story below.
Many people love drinking coffee not just once, but sometimes three-four times a day.
Moreover, we are not just talking about the typical sweet coffee from Starbucks or Seattle's Best. We are talking about the good old bitter and dark coffee.
However, you might want to lessen your intake of coffee if you are a woman who has a concern about breast size.
An Oncologist named Helena Jernstroem conducted a research regarding large breasts, coffee, and the occurrence of breast cancer.
The study was published in 2008 in the British Journal of Cancer and was titled "Coffee intake and CYP1A2*1F genotype predict breast volume in young women: implications for breast cancer."
One great thing about the study is that it discovered that women who drink around three cups of coffee each day are less likely to develop breast cancer.
However, the study that had 270 female participants who drank coffee regularly also noticed something else.
Half of these 270 women had a gene that affects breast size.
Basically, women who have this gene will have their breast sizes reduced as they continue to drink coffee every day.
Still, women who like coffee should not worry because the reduction in breast size will not be noticeable.
