1. 1 in 13 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime
According to the Singapore Cancer Society, 1 in 13 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast cancer usually originates from the cells lining the milk ducts and glands. When breast cancer is detected at this non-invasive stage, treatment is easier, and patients have a higher chance of recovery. However, when cancer cells invade the surrounding tissue, they can enter the circulatory and lymphatic system, and hence, to other organs in the body. When these cancer cells reach a new site, they may form a metastatic tumour. The organs most affected by this are the lungs, bones, and liver.
2. The average bust weighs less than 1 kg
Bust shape, size and weight vary from person to person, although most bust would be around 0.5 kg to 1 kg. The highest recorded bust weight is almost 45 kg!
3. Bust move around (a lot!) when exercising
Regardless of your bust size, your bust will move around as much as 8 inches when you’re exercising. This is the reason why it is highly recommended to wear a supportive bra when you’re doing exercise activities.
4. Gaining and losing weight will affect the bust size
As busts are mostly made up of fat tissues, it is no wonder that gaining and losing weight will affect the bust size accordingly, although it may not be the only cause! Menstrual cycle, pregnancy, menopause, and birth control pills may affect the bust size as well.
5. The first bust augmentation (to increase bust size) surgery took place in 1962
Since then, it is the most popular form of plastic surgery. Natural bust enhancement treatments are also available to provide natural options to consumers. Isn’t that wonderful?
