Lab Grown Cleavage?


Recently, British scientists have discovered the specific gene responsible for triggering the growth of mammary tissue. In other words, they know what makes boobs grow. They have even named this gene - Scaramanga. For those who don't know, Scaramanga is a James Bond villain that had THREE nipples. He was the man with the golden gun, but also had a golden nip. Oh, those zany Brits!

So here's the significance of finding the Scaramanga gene: the formation of organs in embryos is controlled by genes. With breast tissue formation, only two are supposed to form. Sometimes, something triggers the growth of a third breast or misplaced nipples. I use the word sometimes very loosely because 1 in 18 people have an extra nipple. Scientists will be able to understand breast tissue development much better and determine how abnormalities such as a third nipple or breast cancer develops on the cellular level.

This research is funded by The Breakthrough Toby Robins Breast Cancer Research Centre, which has been instrumental in working to find a cure for breast cancer.

One day, scientists will be able to grow mammary tissues in a laboratory to aid patents in cosmetic surgery or reconstructive surgery post mastectomy.

So will cosmetic surgeons not need to use saline or silicone implants? With this technology on the horizon, they could simply grow breasts for their patients. Labs could grow a variety of breasts for clients to choose from. And their new breasts will be REAL tissue!

*This could revolutionize breast augmentation surgery.
*Perhaps, scientists will learn more about how breast cancer cells form and provide a way to either prevent or inhibit cancerous cell formation.
*Is having a third nipple really a bad thing though?

According to The Third Nipple, a website dedicated to the 'triple nipple,' only 11% of people would be uncomfortable around a person with three nipples. 68% of girls said they would date a triple nippler. I'd hardly call this condition a negative phenomena.

With regard to cosmetic surgery, would doctors be able to grow breast tissue and keep them in-house? Will the tissue go bad after a certain time? Maybe customers can have their breasts custom designed and grown. They will just have to wait for the tissue to grow before installation.

For those who want their new breasts super-sized,doctors better get bigger petri dishes...

Mark Wahlberg announced last month that he is going to keep his. Not sure why that required a press release.

If you have a third nipple do you have extra anything else?

Thanks Len.

Dave_not Jim,
Doesn't Paula Abdul have a third nipple too? Oh wait, that's a mole.

I had an aunt once that had three breasts! Odd.

Thanks, btw, for stopping and leaving nice words on my blog.

Three breasts or three nipples? Tri-boobies is much more rare.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
