Almost everyone loves boobies and with good reason. They are not only awesome to look at, but also have very essential functions. Here are 8 awesome facts about boobies.
1. Free food for babies
When a mother is breastfeeding her boobies give off a scent that babies are attracted to and that only they can smell. Awesome alert! Also, studies show that breastfeeding can have long-term benefits for moms like lowering risks of cancer.
Bonus fact: During the Renaissance, people believed that a mother’s milk was actually vaginal blood that transformed into milk as it moved from the womb to the breasts. Luckily, we know better now.
2. They are great for distracting
Not feeling your best or did you get a zit the size of a mountain overnight? Wear a low-neckline top. No one will notice a thing.
3. For most women, the left breast is bigger than the right one
They’re sisters, not twins and they change size from week to week throughout your life based on hormonal changes.
Bonus fact: 80% of women wear the wrong bra size.
4. Only human boobies are permanent
All other primates than humans grow breasts only when they are needed to nurse. Ours grow when puberty begins.
5. Most women aren’t happy with their breasts
Research published in the International Journal of Sexual Health shows that around 70% aren’t too happy about their boobies. Obviously, most men had no complaints. Which leads us to ALL BOOBIES ARE GOOD BOOBIES.

6. Grab them - it’s awesome!
Boob grabbing is scientifically proven to be awesome. A boob grab releases oxytocin which is the same chemical released during hugs.
7. Are you checking them?
One study revealed that 50% of women don’t check themselves for breast cancer symptoms even though breast cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer in women. It is the second most common cancer overall so men need to check too! There were over 2 million new cases in 2018 (World Cancer Research Fund) and the earlier they are detected the better.
