Why Did They Do This Study Again?

Smoking, nipple piercing are risk factors for developing breast abscesses

Women who smoke or pierce their nipples are more likely to develop a breast abscess, according to a new study in the July issue of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons. Researchers at the University of Iowa found the odds of developing primary breast abscess were six times higher in smokers than in nonsmokers, and smokers were 11 times more likely to develop subareolar abscess.

Now, were they smoking while they were having their nipples pierced? That’s poor technique, right there, you betcha.

Hat tip, Lili.
