Man Boobs 31 Jan 2007
What do Tony Blair, Simon Cowell and John McCririck have in common? The answer is Man Boobs, or Moobs as they have been dubbed. They are no longer just the preserve of the older man because in recent studies, men of all ages have cited their bigger breasts as one of their most dreaded areas. So is it that more men are simply more overweight or are there other factors at work here? Martha discusses the phenomenon with Dr Peter Tiplady – Retired Director of Public Health in North Cumbria - and Michael Hodges - Time Out's Editor at Large.
