New Book on Gynecomastia: Men With Breasts

Weird News Today writes about a new book on the problem of male breast size:

“Merle Yost, a psychotherapist, has written “Demystifying Gynecomastia: Men With Breasts“. In it, he reports that up to one-third of males may have to deal with this problem at some time, because of the increased use of anti-depressants and the obesity epidemic.

What got him motivated to write this book is all the public interest he got on his website. He posted a page about gynecomastia on his therapy practice website, and is apparently getting a lot of traffic to it.” The full press release for the book can be found at prnewswire.com.

Gynecomastia.org exists to create a centralized resource for those who suffer from gynecomastia.

CalorieLab Calori Counter News writes about the issue in a post called “Obesity contributes to man boob epidemic“:

“We can add one more medical side effect to the lengthy list of problems associated with obesity: “man boob syndrome” (MBS), or pseudo gynecomastia, a condition in which the breasts of obese men become enlarged and flabby. Increasingly, victims are seeking a surgical solution.”
