Researchers at Harvard University and the University of Toronto recently concluded a new study with results that women with big breasts might be prone to diabetes. The study, called the Nurses' Health Study, has been published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.

However, critics say that there are many other factors that lead to the onset of diabetes and not just the size of breasts.

 

Highlights of the Nurses' Health Study
a. Researchers studied 92,106 women volunteers.
b. Volunteer's average age was 38.
c. All participants were asked to recall their bra size from the age of 20.
d. It was seen that women with who had a D cup or larger size at the age of 20 had about three times higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
e. It was also seen that women who wore B cup and C cup bras experienced a higher risk for the development of diabetes than women who wore an A cup.
f. Researchers also took into account the age, body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, eating habits, family history of diabetes, physical activity level and pregnancies of the volunteers.
