Publisher's Summary

[Contains explicit content] It can save babies’ lives and supply rarified fatty acids, antibodies and proteins. But breastmilk also contains tons of mysterious sugars not digestible by babies. So what are they for? And what can the answer teach us about the future of health and medicine, even for adults?
Breasts have been bared, flaunted, measured, inflated, suckled, pierced, tassled — and in every way fetishized by our society. Host and science journalist Florence Williams (prize-winning author of BREASTS: A Natural and Unnatural History) delves deeper into the mysteries of the human breast with funny and enlightening reporting. She tackles the big questions of why they evolved in the first place, how jet fuel ended up in breast milk, why they are arriving earlier and bigger in teen-aged girls, man boobs, and how breast cancer in men can help female breast cancer patients.
