Breasts have been bared, flaunted, measured, inflated, — and in every way fetishized by our society. Host and science journalist Florence Williams (prize-winning author of BREASTS: A Natural and Unnatural History) delves deeper into the mysteries of the human breast with funny and enlightening reporting. She tackles the big questions of why they evolved in the first place, why they are arriving earlier and bigger in teen-aged girls, man boobs, and how breast cancer in men can help female breast cancer patients. In this episode, Florence travels to Houston Texas, home of the creation and invention of the silicone breast implant for an examination by celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Franklin Rose to determine if she is a candidate for breast augmentation and more.
