Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History
(W. W. Norton & Company, 2012)
Science reporter Florence Williams has created a hugely entertaining and informative book about breasts in the modern world. Our breasts are changing and it’s not just because of the shape of our bras. Science and history intersect in a fun and interesting way as she looks at the evolution of the breast, and why our breasts are getting bigger and developing earlier. Williams takes a very personal look at the how environmental pollutants may be contributing to breast cancer, and what chemicals are now found in breast milk.
