    It really is a reminder that modern living is just one big experiment.

    These boys were in their early 20s. I'm kind of wondering if it's the cumulative effect of a number of things such as those pointed out by heart in conjunction with chemicals in our diet and possibly androgen suppression associated with heavy marijuana use (the latter is a bonus if you happen to have had androgen-related cancers, but maybe not so good if you don't want boobies)

    Hormones in food and increased marijuana use. Solution? Drink organic milk, eat free range eggs, stop eating so much red meat and processed cheese, and cut back on the reefers, dudes.

    Yes, I've noticed so many men with breasts lately - I thought it was just my imagination. And not only that, girls are developing huge breasts very early. Almost all of the girls in 7th grade were flat chested 15 years ago. Looking at my sister's friends now is almost scary. Everyone has extremely large breasts. Maybe it's the hormones in dairy products or all the florescent lights or some weird chemical preservative? Who the hell knows. But tits are getting bigger for everyone, all around.

    I am not yet ready to embrace man boobs though...maybe younger women can flex with this sort of thing however.

    Things which strike me as odd -
    The nipple should be larger
    The breasts should be larger
    Note the fat deposits under the skin (collogen? sp?)
    Note the lack of body hair
    The lack of muscle for that matter

    I would say there is almost a lack of testosterone - and reading up on it seems to confirm it. Too much testosterone and the estrogen is supposed to stay in check (LOL). What I don' t understand is the lack of testosterone. There are a lot of men with a low testosterone count, and they don't have man boobs (moobs whatever).

    Strangely enough, when I look at young men, I see two types, very skinny to the point of sickly, and very fat - but evenly distributed. Compare this to the older generation which had fat+muscle, lots and lots of fat, or the really skinny kind. The older generation also used to be very hairy.

    Now, I see men hitting 18, that can't even grow facial hair. I thought that was like a right of passage (next to getting a car of course).

    [Edit] If those are true to spirit - I should feel a part of my head lighting up, but I don't. I don't feel repulsed either. Weird.

    Between plastic food containers, hormones in our chicken, and overall more sedentary lifestyle, doesn't surprise me. Plus the Gorge is out in hicksville where everyone drives and no one can walk or bike anywhere.

    Too much schooling, not enough hard work in the woods. But to be honest, I'm 22 and I don't know anybody of my age with men-breasts.
