Women with Small Breasts Have Less Type 2 Diabetes

Researchers at Harvard University and the University of Toronto surveyed 92,106 women and found those who had a D-cup or larger at the age of 20 were at around three times higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes than those with an A-cup. Harvard professor Joel Ray believes the correlation is related to how breasts develop during puberty. ‘Puberty is a period marked by raised insulin resistance…. In healthy teens this disappears after puberty ends. But it may be that this puts girls whose breasts are more pronounced at greater risk of diabetes in later life.” Harvard Health News Jan 2012
