You knew you should be examining them every month and plucking your nipple hair, but a new study found that squeezing your breasts regularly may prevent cancer. The study done at University of California at Berkeley concluded that compressing breast tissue may prevent malignant cells triggering cancer. “Here we show that physical force can play a role in the growth — and reversion — of cancer cells … Malignant cells have not completely forgotten how to be healthy; they just need the right cues to guide them back to a healthy growth pattern,” said Gautham Venugopalan, a leading member of the research team. Got that ladies? We need to squeeze our boobs to remind them to stay healthy. No problem, we’ve got that covered. And we’re sure the men in our lives will be happy to help.
This study made me curious about what other ways I might be unintentionally neglecting the well-being of my boobs. Click through to see what I discovered. [MSN]
“These babies are great [points to her breasts]. They are my prizewinners. For a while they were out and about, showing off on Broadway every night, then they came to L.A. and were like, ‘No one else looks like me here!’ They were nervous to make their appearance but feel they’ve earned their place. So they asked if they could come out, and I was like, ‘All right, you guys.’ They definitely rose to the occasion, so I’m going to continue to give them more opportunities.”
Normally I think Lea Michele can be sort of insufferable (mostly because she was once rude to my friend at an audition, like, five years ago) but I have decided that I like anyone who refers to her breasts as “prizewinners” and gabs about them at length. Also, “boobs” is the last word that come to mind when I think about the goody-two-shoes “Glee” star, so I’m kinda excited to see what these prizewinners can do. [Marie Claire] [Photo: Marie Claire]
“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong has a bangin’ bod. But do we need to see all of it? On the red carpet?
I think we should all congratulate Alicia Richman of Granbury, Texas on her extraordinary mammary glands. The 28-year-old mother is the new Guinness World Record holder for the “Most Breast Milk Donated.” Since giving birth to her son Drake last March, she has donated about 86 gallons of excess breast milk to the Mothers’ Milk Bank of North Texas, which helps premies and sick babies.
“I’m so thankful that I’m able to help not only my own baby, Drake, but all of the little babies who need it and are sick … It really feels amazing and I’m so thankful that I’m able to do it,” said Richman, who wants to raise awareness about milk bank donation.
That’s wonderful and I’m happy for the sick babies who are getting fed, but I’m still trying to process the thought of 87 gallons of milk coming out of this woman. That doesn’t include what she fed to her son. That is A LOT of milk. [Huffington Post]
As a small-boobed lady, I admit that I can sometimes be a bit ignorant about the difficulties and particularities of being a big-titted woman. I hardly ever wear bras even, because they are just not necessary. But for women who possess rather large boobies, finding fashion can be near impossible. Enter Saint Bustier, an online clothing retailer referred to us by the inimitable writer Caitlin Moran. Saint Bustier provides a vast array of impeccably tailored, classy clothing for women with larger breasts. Sure, some of it is on the incredibly pricey side, but finding a garment that really suits the girls is well worth the investment, we think.
Most of the time, I’m like, “What’s a Joanna Krupa?” And then somebody is like, “Oh, she’s on ‘The Real Housewives of Miami’,” and then I’m like, “Ah, that’s the one hour of crap TV that I refuse to watch.” Sorry, but Miami is the worst. But then, Joanna Krupa does something so deliciously fame-whore-y you can’t help but pay attention: On Thursday night, she wore a totally see-through top while out to dinner with her fiance Romain Zago. The NSFW pic is after the jump! [Photos: Fame/Flynet]
