Third of young women would swap IQ for larger breasts
They say it’s what’s inside that counts – but most young women in this country would beg to differ, it seems.
Shocking new research shows almost half of young women aged 18 to 25 would prefer to have large breasts than high intelligence - with a third even saying they would gladly swap.
Experts have blamed the growing obsession with celebrity culture among youngsters together with the burgeoning market for plastic surgery.

The study, which has alarmed women’s groups, also found a quarter of those surveyed felt bigger breasts would make them feel ‘happier’.
And almost 60 per cent of the respondents believed that men would be ‘more interested’ in them romantically if they had bigger breasts.
It comes amid widespread concern about the pressures put on modern-day women through advertising and magazines.
Kat Banyard from women’s group UK Feminista said: ‘Women face now unprecedented pressures to focus on their body.
‘Industries that focus on the way women look are flourishing – and that means that from a very early age, women are taught that the way they look matters more than what they do.
‘The consequences of this can manifest in eating disorders or extreme measures such as plastic surgery.
‘These figures show that women still loathe their bodies on an industrial scale.’

I'm sorry. I'm idealistic I guess. And I know I'm not the only one here with a daughter.

But jeesh...women can be attractive without have ginormous ta tas, and to think that a full 1/3 of the female population would give up IQ points for bigger tits is just...well...sad.

This makes Zooey sad too...
