Friday: Human Biology Blog

How often have we, as dogs, heard a random "scientific fact" on the news or from an acquaintance and wondered its validity? This blog takes recent scientific articles (published in reputable journals and the like) and discusses in layman's terms, the results thereof.

Excerpt from a post about breast-sagging and its relationship to breast-feeding:

"The results showed no difference in the degree of breast ptosis (sagging) between the women who had breastfed and those who had not. However, factors that DID correlate with breast sagging included the woman’s age, how many pregnancies she had had, and whether she had smoked."
