    ePub ↠ Breasts AUTHOR Florence Williams Hardcover ↠ Florence Williams Breasts AUTHOR Florence WilliaThe subtitle of this book should really be How breasts are under researched and full of toxins that you will pump into your child and did I mention breastfeeding yet?Don't get me wrong it was interesting and informative But it was heavily focused on breast health cancer toxins toxins toxins and breastfeeding if you don't breastfeed your children are probably doomed to lower Is and bad health and junk Bad bad bad Which okay is fine because it's very relevant But based on the title and description I was hoping for something that covered yearsLike the history of breast implants It spans several decades and I found it really interesting But a whole lot of the book is focused on recent things that concern breasts And like it or not titles are important if Mary Roach's Stiff conveys that it's not going to be a very serious look at cadavers then this title tells me to expect you kn

    ePub ↠ Breasts AUTHOR Florence Williams Hardcover ↠ Florence Williams Breasts AUTHOR Florence WilliaThe author's style is entertaining and incredibly easy to read even for a book rich with scientific information That information however is very frustrating for a person who unlike the author understands the difference between correlation and causation While I believe Florence Williams was well intentioned her agenda of conveying every theory on chemicals despite whether or not science supports them made me uestion the validity of the entire book I began skipping entire sections whenever I realized the author was just telling her own personal experiences as case studies should not be used as evidence I was particularly upset when she set up an experiment using herself and her daughter as subjects but there were confounding variables participant bias it was not blind there were no placebos and she stopped her daughter's participation half way throughTo end on a positive note Florence Williams has an excellent writing style a great sense of humor and a determined attitude that
