Small Breasted Women May Be Less Likely to Develop Type 2 Diabetes

Tue, 17 Jan 2012

Women who have small breasts could be less likely to develop type 2 than those who have more ample bosoms.

Harvard University and the University of Toronto researchers interviewed 92,106 women and discovered that those with a D-cup or bigger and aged 20 were about three times as likely, to develop type 2 diabetes than those with an A-cup.

The researchers consider that the correlation is associated with how breasts develop in puberty.

Puberty is a period noted for increased insulin resistance . This means that the body is not able to absorb glucose as it ought to, triggering high blood sugar levels a precursor for type 2 diabetes.

In healthy teenagers raised insulin resistance vanishes upon puberty ending. However, this may place girls whose breasts are more ample at a higher risk of developing diabetes later in life.
