A Natural and Unnatural HistoryBook - 2013
Feted and fetishized, the breast is an evolutionary masterpiece. But breasts are changing. They're getting bigger, arriving earlier, and attracting newfangled chemicals. Increasingly, the odds are stacked against us in the struggle against breast cancer, even among men. What makes breasts so mercurial and so vulnerable? Intrepid science journalist Florence Williams sets out to uncover the latest science from the fields of anthropology, biology, and medicine in an engaging expose about the breast and its imperiled modern fate.
