Too much coffee may cut your cup size
FROM STAFF AND WIRE REPORTS
A Swedish study has found that drinking more than three cups of coffee a
day may shrink your bra size.
The effect is the result of a gene that about half of all women possess,
i The researchers followed 300 female coffee enthusiasts. Their coffee
intake and bust size were recorded daily. Researchers eventually discovered the link
between coffee consumption and smaller breasts.
On the flip side, however, the study also shows that women who had a moder
ately high intake of coffee were less likely to develop breast cancer than non-coffee
drinkers. Coffee also appears to reduce the risks of cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and
Parkinson’s disease.
NOTED. An entire church has been stolen
from a village in Moscow, where it was built
almost 200 years ago.
The Church of Christ’s Resurrection was
in an isolated area and was only occasionally
visited by clergymen. A recent survey of the
two-story church found that it was structurally
sound, but all that remains are the foundations
and sections of walls.
