Intelligence Related to Breast Size

An Associated Press story from August 31, 1964, discussed the findings of a study done by Dr. Erwin O. Strassman, who was a clinical professor at the Baylor University College of Medicine in Texas.

In what I consider to be purely junk science, Dr. Strassman found that in a study of 717 childless women, there was a definite correlation between breast size and intelligence.

“The bigger the brain, the smaller the breasts, and vice versa, the bigger the breasts, the smaller the I.Q.”

His results were published under the title “Physique, Temperament, and Intelligence in Infertile Women” in the International Journal of Fertility.

As they always say, don’t believe everything that you read.

That’s craaaaazy

Hey I just want you to know, that your information appeared right at the top when I was asking Google about the biological advantage of big breasts. Pretty misleading tho since there was this Google “other question” boxes. If you know what I mean that always come up when you search for something on Googl. And there was the question: are big breasts a sign of low IQ and they quote your text but just with this: “Strassman found that in a study of 717 childless women, there was a definite correlation between breast size and intelligence. “
It appears like it actually is. But then I clicked on it and saw that you see this as pseudoscience. So it’s very misleading on Google and some people might actually take is as fact with the Google awnser, which is complete against the point your trying to make. Wtf crazy internet.
