Can Smoking Marijuana Cause Enlarged Breasts In Men?

moobsThe next drug-related hysteria? Via CNN, a plastic surgeon claims that his field’s experts link pot smoking with gynecomastia, or, as the professionals term it, man boobs:

For now, if you have moobs, it’s probably best to put out that joint. Gynecomastia, otherwise known as man boobs (or moobs for short), is a condition that affects approximately 33% to 41% of men between the ages of 25 and 45.

Gynecomastia is caused by a hormone imbalance between testosterone and estrogen. Animal studies have shown that exposure to the active ingredient in marijuana can result in a decrease in testosterone levels, a reduction of testicular size, and abnormalities in the form and function of sperm.

So can smoking pot really give you man boobs? Probably. Although the association between marijuana and gynecomastia hasn’t been conclusively proven, it appears very plausible. The majority of plastic surgeons I’ve consulted with routinely inquire with their gynecomastia patients about cannabis use and recommend they stop smoking immediately.

Jack Kerouac said “Pretty girls make graves”, but should they sell them, too?

Via Reuters:

A Polish firm that makes coffins has angered the Catholic church by trying to drum up business with a calendar depicting topless models posing next to its caskets.

One image from the 2013 edition of the calendar has a blonde model, wearing only a skimpy thong and with a snake draped around her neck, reclining on a coffin. In another, a woman wearing a crimson corset is depicted pulling out the heart of a man lying on a casket.

“My son had the idea of creating the company’s calendar… so that we could show something half-serious, colorful, beautiful; the beauty of Polish girls and the beauty of our coffins,” said Zbigniew Lindner, the firm’s owner.

“We wanted to show that a coffin isn’t a religious symbol. Its a product,” he said. “Why are people afraid of coffins and not of business suits, cosmetics or jewelry?”

Boobs and Booze? Where Do I Sign?

“By the way, if anyone here is in marketing or advertising…kill yourself.” – Bill Hicks.

According to The New York Daily News:

A German liquor company called G-Spirits is promising customers that “every drop” of its line of alcoholic beverages has been poured on the naked breasts of a certified model — with her approval, of course.

[…]

The booze brand brags that its barrel-aged whisky has been thoroughly splashed on the ample bosom of Alexa Varga, Hungary’s 2012 Playboy Playmate of the Year.

For 139 euros (around $180 plus shipping), says the firm, you will find “its unbelievably versatile flavors range from roasted almonds, dried fruit, and toffee, to honey, vanilla, baked apples and cinnamon. Its finish is harmonic, well-balanced, spicy and long-lasting.”

The company claims that the stock is limited to a mere 5000 bottles and comes with a certificate, including the original signature of the model and the bottle number, which proves that “every single drop” touched the model’s flesh.

Xenu bless those Raelians…

Via the Riverfront Times: Free your breasts, and your mind will follow. Such is the mantra of GoTopless.org, an offshoot of a religious movement tied to UFOs that is bringing its fight for bare breasts to mid-Missouri later this month.

“When a woman takes her top off in public, there’s a chemical reaction in her brain that is very powerful,” explains Donna Newman, a Raelian priest and spokeswoman for GoTopless.org. “It’s something men will never understand. We want it written into the Constitution that women should be allowed to go shirt-free in public. We were human beings before we’re gendered.”
