A new study suggests that men who drink a lot of instant coffee or Brazil nuts may be at risk of developing man-boobs. Instant coffee and Brazil nuts in particular contain high-levels of "gender-bending chemicals," known as phytoestrogens, which also cause fertility problems in animals and increase the risk of breast cancer in women. Instant coffee has 1,833 micrograms of phytoestrogens per 100g and Brazil nuts had 867 microgams of phytoestrogens per 100g. Is this how Davy Jones's rack came about? [The Sun]

"Brazil nuts! Look what you've done to me!"

I will forever love that Davy Jones scene in The Brady Bunch Movie. Brills.
