Mau Tau Kenapa Pria Punya Puting?
May 28, 2009 § Leave a comment
Beberapa waktu sempat update status mempertanyakan kenapa pria punya puting. Ada sekitar 10 comment+balasan yang ada. Mayoritas memberikan jawaban yang ngaco dah.
Padahal, ada jawaban ilmiah, yang gw dapet dari sebuah buku yang isinya pertanyaan-pertanyaan rada ‘nyeleneh’ tapi punya jawaban ilmiah. Dikarang oleh dua orang yang berkecimpung di dunia kedokteran, dan salah satunya memang dokter.
Anyhow, buku tersebut berjudul:
Why Do Men Have Nipples?
Hundreds of Questions You’d Only Ask
a Doctor After Your Third Martini
by: Mark Leyner and Billy Goldberg, M.D.
WHY DO MEN HAVE NIPPLES?
Since our editor thought this question made the best title for this book, we racked our brains to come up with a hilarious, witty, and informative answer to this question. Our attempts proved futile, so, in order to finish this book so another brilliant title wouldn’t go to waste, we went for the boring, straight scientific response. Sorry. We are mammals and blessed with body hair, three middle ear bones, and the ability to nourish our young with milk that females produce in modified sweat glands called mammary glands. Although females have the mammary glands, we all start out in a similar way in the embryo. During development, the embryo follows a female template until about six weeks, when the male sex chromosome kicks in for a male embryo. The embryo then begins to develop all of its male characteristics. Men are thus left with nipples and also with some breast tissue. Men can even get breast cancer and there are some medical conditions that can cause male breasts to enlarge. Abnormal enlargement of the breasts in a male is known as gynecomastia. Gynecomastia can be caused by using anabolic steroids. So, if Barry Bonds ends up coming to the old-timers game with a pair of sagging 44DD man boobs, then I think we will finally have our answer to the steroid controversy.
So now you know yaaaaa…….he..he…he…
