Don't Get a Boob Job

In an article published a little over a year ago (I know,VERY old news) women who choose to get breast implants are three times more likely to commit suicide.

As indicated in the article, I imagine this has more than a little to do with alleged low self-esteem. It also makes one wonder why the heck someone decided to study that in the first place.

Apologies for the recent lack of better posts- I haven't been finding inspiration, which, actually, I consider a good thing.


  1. Haven't read your post, I'm really wondering why someone would study that! What a random topic to come up with! Hope you're doing good.

  2. Well, it says that this particular study was inspired by others of the same kind.

    As far as I'm able to tell, there has been a study on pretty much anything imaginable. Once I saw one about preferred hot dog texture of young children (though I suppose that does have a marketing purpose...)
