Swedish researcher say that drinking three cups of coffee a day may shrink women's breasts. Since they didn't have the bust measurements prior to the women in the study starting to drink coffee, all they actually found was a correlation between coffee drinking and breast size, not proof that drinking coffee shrinks breasts. Even so, it's something to think about.
Drinking just three cups of coffee a day may make women's breasts shrink, a study finds.
Nearly 300 women were surveyed by researchers from Sweden's Lund University about their bust measurements and how many cups of coffee they drank in an average day.

Barefoot Yankee Gal reveals how to make natural remedies using your herbs and spices and the contents of your vegetable bin.
Open your kitchen cupboard and what do you see? Salt, pepper, ginger, dill, alum, meat tenderizer, honey, molasses, baking soda; and the list can go on. Viewed as flavor enhancers and condiments these are tasty additions to any meal. But there is a hidden world of medicinal benefit in many of those little tins and shaker-topped jars.
When you reach for the alum to eliminate a canker sore, or swallow a teaspoonful of honey to soothe a sore throat, or make a moist plaster of meat tenderizer to take the sting out of a bee-bite, you are practicing "Kitchen Cupboard Medicine". Kitchen Cupboard Medicine has been practiced for hundreds of years. In his ancient, surviving text, De Medicina, Aulus Cornelius Celsus's (ca 25 BC–ca 50) references a pain relieving pill containing pepper; but only recently, with the assistance of studies and evidence-based medicine, have the benefits been proven and better understood.

Paul Fassa reveals how to use a common vegetable and vinegar to cure skin cancer.
When it comes to skin cancer, Big Pharma offers only topical chemo creams and surgery. The chemo creams often don't work but often do cause ugly, painful side effects. Removing skin cancer tumors surgically usually results with tumors resurfacing sooner or later. Surgeries often leave ugly scars.
However, there are inexpensive, effective, safe cures for curing skin cancer that are banned by the mainstream medical monopoly, which are not publicized by the mainstream media.
A relatively new remedy, BEC5, is a spin off from an Australian folk remedy for farm animals. It is available to anyone online. It uses the phyotonutrients extracted from eggplants. Clinical trials and anecdotal testimonies confirmed BEC5's efficacy and safety on basal cell and squamous cell cancers. Read more
