BREAKING: Genes Responsible For Breast Size Identified

Scientists working in the field of titties (suck it, physics!) have officially located some of the human genes responsibly for a woman's breast size. My breast size? There weren't any genes responsible, only ice cream sundaes.

Researchers have identified seven genetic markers linked with a woman's breast size, according to a new study.


While it's was known that breast size is in part heritable, the study is the first to find specific genetic factors that are associated with differences in breast size, the researchers said.

In addition, two of these markers have previously been associated with breast cancer risk. This suggests some of the same biological pathways underlie both normal breast growth and breast cancer, said study researcher Nicholas Eriksson, of 23andMe, the genetic testing company that conducted the study.

Listen, if there ever comes a time in the future when expecting parents are able to choose their daughter's breast size in utero, DO NOT give her big ol' DD's. No father wants a daughter with giant chest melons, no matter how much he loves her mother's. But you don't make her flat-chested either. If it were my daughter I've give her like, regular B's. Also: a penis that doesn't fall off till she's 30.

Thanks to Thaylor, who agrees any breasts bigger than a handful might not fit in your hand but are still fun to look at/rub your face between.

    women only looks like sexy if his breast size more than 32'..
    I have recently posted Big Boobs

  • I dare say there is no science worth doing after this..

    I think the size of one's breasts should be up to the person who lives with them, not just the parents. It is likely that at some point in the future a form of genetic therapy will be possible so that a woman can enlarge or reduce her breasts, even for a period of time in her life. Similarly people will be able to alter their eye and hair colour, and maybe even change the shape of their nose. We're already saying good bye to the days of living with whatever it was that you ended up with in your genes.

    Wants to size them all to a B..

    I have C cups but would really like natural D cups. Implants don't cut it for me, I want the real things.

  • Actually, my dad is very proud of the fact that I'm sporting a natural F cup. :)

    Pics or not true.

  • Thank you Mum.

    SUCK IT HIGGS BOSON!! We got the big tit genes!!

    genetics is fucking done.

    That's what happens when you let your cytochrome c into the cytosol... dummies.

  • Looks like CERN just lost the Nobel. But, you know, priorities need to be upheld ;)

  • Heh heh, upheld..

    now if they could just find the genes that control how badly the ladies want my man sausage, then I can finally get some rest

  • I think I might have that gene.

    prove it
