Say It Ain't So, Cup of Joe

A study by Swedish researcher Helena Jernström revealed that drinking 3 or more cups of coffee a day may noticeably decrease the size of a woman's breasts (at least among women who carry a certain gene). According to Jernström, however:

"Coffee-drinking women do not have to worry their breasts will shrink to nothing overnight. They will get smaller, but the breasts aren't just going to disappear." [Quoted in The Daily Mail and The Telegraph, Oct 22, 2008]

Since I regularly drink about 6 cups of coffee a day, that was a relief. Sort of.

So drinking only two cups will merely make breasts nervous?

How big are the cups - I mean the ones that hold coffee?
