This is not a joke. It came from the New England Journal of Medicine. Great news for girl watchers: Ogling over women's breasts is good for a man's health and can add years to his life, medical experts have discovered. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, "Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out" declared gerontologist Dr. Karen Weatherby.

Dr. Weatherby and fellow researchers at three hospitals in Frankfurt, Germany, reached the startling conclusion after comparing the health of 200 male outpatients - half of whom were instructed to look at busty females daily, the other half told to refrain from doing so. The study revealed that after five years, the chest-watchers had lower blood pressure, slower resting pulse rates and fewer instances of coronary artery disease.

"Sexual excitement gets the heart pumping and improves blood circulation," explains Dr. Weatherby. "There's no question: Gazing at breasts makes men healthier." "Our study indicates that engaging in this activity a few minutes daily cuts the risk of stroke and heart attack in half. We believe that by doing so consistently, the average man can extend his life four to five years."

Analysis: Don't get your hopes up, guys. No such study was ever published in the New England Journal of Medicine (check for yourself).

A search of the thousands of peer-reviewed articles contained in the National Institutes of Health PubMed database turns up zero items documenting the health benefits of staring at women's breasts, and, for that matter, zero items authored by "Dr. Karen Weatherby" (who does not exist, so far as I can tell).

If the story smacks of tabloid faux-journalism, well, that's precisely what it is. The text hit the Internet in March or April 2000, mere weeks after a strikingly similar article appeared in the consistently misinformative Weekly World News (nor is this the first time we've encountered baseless Internet rumors traceable to precisely that source). A slightly different version had already appeared in the May 13, 1997 issue of the tabloid.

It goes without saying (I hope) that it's unwise to take medical advice from supermarket tabloids, still less from forwarded emails. Males who wish to increase their lifespans ought to consider practicing common sense as an alternative — it's more likely to achieve the desired result than any amount of public breast ogling.

Admittedly, I don't have any medical research to back that up. Volunteers?

A rather bizarre study carried out by German researchers suggests that staring at women's breasts is good for men's health and increases their life expectancy.

According to Dr. Karen Weatherby, a gerontologist and author of the study, gawking at women’s breasts is a healthy practice, almost at par with an intense exercise regime, that prolongs the lifespan of a man by five years.

She added, "Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female, is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out."

A five-year research on 500 men
Researchers at three hospitals in Frankfurt, Germany did an in-depth analysis of 200 healthy males over a period of five years. Half the volunteers were instructed to ogle at the breasts of women daily, while the rest were told to refrain from doing so.

At the close of the study, the researchers noted that the men who stared at the breasts of females on a regular basis exhibited lower blood pressure, slower resting pulse rates and lesser episodes of coronary artery [a blood vessel that carries oxygenated blood away from the heart to the body.] disease.


Sexual desire linked to better blood circulation
The researchers declared that sexual desire gives rise to better blood circulation that signifies an overall improved health.

Weatherby explained the concept stating, "Sexual excitement gets the heart pumping and improves blood circulation. There's no question: Gazing at breasts makes men healthy.

"Our study indicates that engaging in this activity a few minutes daily cuts the risk of stroke and heart attack in half. We believe that by doing so consistently, the average man can extend his life four to five years."

In addition, she also recommended that men over 40 should gaze at larger breasts daily for 10 minutes.

The German research is believed to be published in the New England Journal of Medicine.




Did reading this article get your heart pumping? Well, that’s the only excitement you are going to get.

While many men may rejoice in hearing this glorious news, sadly it is not true. So get your minds out of the gutter and remember that today is a day of hoaxes and jokes.

Happy April Fools Day!


INILAH.COM, Jakarta - Sebuah penelitian menyebutkan, bagi seorang pria yang sering menatap payudara, akan memungkinkan memiliki hidup lebih panjang.

Studi yang dimuat di New England Journal of Medicine mengatakan, menatap buah dada yang seksi selama 10 menit sama dengan latihan aerobik selama 30 menit.

Penelitian dilakukan oleh Dr Karen Bouncer dan koleganya di tiga rumah sakit di Frankfurt, Jerman, melibatkan 200 pria. Seratus orang disuruh melihat payudara secara teratur setiap hari, sedangkan 100 pria lainnya dilarang untuk melihatnya.

Studi dilakukan selama lima tahun dan hasilnya menunjukkan kelompok pengintip dada perempuan punya tekanan darah lebih rendah, denyut nadi lebih lambat saat istirahat, dan mengalami gangguan pembuluh darah jantung lebih rendah.

“Kenikmatan seksual memacu denyut jantung dan memperlancar sirkulasi darah,” kata Dr Bouncer.

“Kami percaya jika pria memandang dada ukuran 'cup D’ secara teratur, mereka akan hidup lebih panjang empat atau lima tahun.”

Bouncer menganjurkan kepada kaum pria, terutama usia di atas 30 tahun untuk membaca majalah-majalah 'panas' seperti Playboy yang menampilkan sejumlah perempuan berdada besar.

Selain itu Bouncer juga mnganjurkan pria mengikuti terapi secara teratur seperti di rumah dengan melihat payudara pasangannya. Jika Anda berada di kantor, usahakan bergaul dengan perempuan yang memiliki payudara besar atau sesuai selera masing-masing.

Sedangkan, jika sedang berada di jalanan, mata kaum pria diperkenankan untuk 'jelalatan' melihat payudara perempuan di halte, di bus atau di mana saja, tapi hati-hati kalau sedang mengendarai mobil jangan sampai tertabrak.

Coba curi-curi pandang untuk melihat payudara itu selama 10 menit saja. Alangkah baiknya kalau punya temen cewek yang bisa mem-back-up terapi ini, dengan kata lain dapat memperlihatkan payudaranya hanya selama 10 menit saja setiap harinya.

"Terapi ini harusnya dilakukan secara teratur agar usia Anda jauh lebih muda," pungkas Bouncer. [mor]
