I read this story today in the newspaper and it made me laugh. Not saying it's not true or anything, it was just funny as hell to read something like that. Here just a bit of what it said from the AP today.

Lavender and tea tree oils found in some shampoos, soaps and lotions can temporarily leave boys with enlarged breasts in rare cases, apparently by disrupting their hormonal balance, a preliminary study suggests. Some experts emphasized that the problem appears to happen infrequently and clears up when the oils are no longer used.

These plants oils, sometimes called "essential oils", are added to many health-care products, usually for their scent. The oils are sometimes found in other household products or sold in purer forms. Tea tree oil is sometimes used in shampoos for head lice.

The suspected effect in this study is blamed on some chemical within the oils that the body processes like estrogen, the female hormone that promotes breast growth.

The findings are reported today in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Yeah, my ex-girlfriend was a dirt-bag with greasy hair and dandruff but she had huge knockers so I'm thinking this could be just a hoax...
