Williams revealed that the average bra size of an American woman has increased from 34 B to 36 C and added that the increasing size comes with a number of problems.

Trying to determine the reason for the increase in size, Williams pointed out to a number of factors including obesity and early onset of puberty, both of which are viewed as precursors to breast cancer.

Williams also said that larger breasts lead to a higher accumulation of pollutants which are then passed on to infants through breast feeding. "Breast-feeding, it turns out, is a very efficient way to transfer our society's industrial flotsam to the next generation. Our breasts soak up pollution. Breasts carry the burden of the mistakes we have made", she added.
