Speaking of Breasts (Because We Were, You Know)

I was going to make a joke about this. In fact, I wanted to make a joke about this. Something about how it was irresponsible of scientists to enable the growth of the breast industry in a time when we’re already seeing a severe bra shortage in the UK, maybe.

But, honestly, this is just too cool.

A gene that triggers the growth of breasts has been discovered which could one day enable technicians to grow mammary tissue in the lab for cosmetic surgery or for reconstructive surgery after breast cancer.
The team from the Breakthrough Breast Cancer Research Centre has named it the Scaramanga gene, after the three-nippled villain from the James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun.

For a woman who has had a mastectomy, this could be a minor miracle. For men who like Dolly Parton-esque figures, this could be proof that God loves them.

For me, it’s just amazing to see the advances in medical science throughout my life. Miracles of modern science and all that…

Anyway, hooray boobs!
