quote:Originally posted by VAlibrarianBreasts are basically for feeding babies, biologically speaking. The rest of their function is just a "bonus". As a male, I like that bonus alot. But as a student of science, I must admit that the bonus is trivial when compared to the main benefit.
quote:A casual answer to the question, Why do women have breasts? is to nurse babies. However, most breast tissue is merely fat, not milk-producing tissue. At puberty the human breasts enlarge through the development of both glandular tissue and fat. The human is the only primate whose mammary glands (breasts) are visibly enlarged in the absence of pregnancy or lactation (Neville,1983, 105). This paper is directed to why non-lactating women have conspicuous breasts. While the fat in their breasts supports nursing, so does fat elsewhere.
quote:Many animals manage successful breast feeding without have such large external structures. That there needs to be a mammary gland to produce milk is self evident, that it needs to be surrounded by so much fat is less clear to me – but then maybe there is some necessity in human physiology that differs from our chimpanzee cousins in this respect?
quote:Originally posted by ROBERTI have heard it suggested that human breasts have become "conspicuous" because they resemble buttocks. [:I]They are certainly an advertisment of reproductive fitness.If a woman displayed her - "I've got enough fat reserves to carry a child to term" - adipose tissue on her abdomen she would appear pregnant, which is not attractive as her reproductive resources would appear to be taken.So this may be why fat is displayed in the form of conspicuous breasts.

[:I]Surprisingly this research didn't take place at Bristol University.
