The Doctors discuss a study that found that women with bigger breasts had their colds and flu stick around longer when compared to those with smaller breasts. The study also found that larger chested women were 56 times more likely to be prescribed antibiotics for an upper respiratory illness.
The study theorizes that more fat may lead to a weakened immune system, but The Doctors note this might have more to do with someone being overweight (and not the size of the breast), as this can cause one's immune system to be weaker.
"Overall, obesity has a negative impact on your immune system," OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry says, noting that typically a woman with larger breasts will have more tissue on the rest of her body. She adds, "Don't just blame it on the breasts."
The study claims women with an F cup-sized breast had a cold for an average of 8 days, while a woman with an AA cup (or less) only had their cold for an average of 4 days.
The Doctors remind us that the best way to treat a cold is getting plenty of rest, staying hydrated, and eating healthy foods.
