From the German Herald via Anorak:

An elite military Guards battalion is growing boobs because of the way they drill, a shock military medical report had revealed in Germany.

Dozens of soldiers in the Wachbataillon unit - which performs close drill displays at official events - are said to be stricken with a condition which stimulates male mammary glands.

Experts say the repeated slapping of the soldiers' heavy rifles in the same spot on the left side of their chests during drills has stimulated the glands to produce hormones, causing boobs to sprout on one side only.

The condition - called one sided gynecomastia - has been diagnosed in 74 per cent of battalion members who presented to army medics with concerns over the growths.

Director of plastic surgery at the military hospital in Berlin, Professor Bjorn Krapohl, confirmed: "There is a very significant link between the activity in the Guard Battalion and the development of the breast on the left side.

Yep, Professor Crapola Krapohl sounds legit to me...

Unfortunately, while researching this story, I discovered there is a whole website dedicated to moobs. Enjoy, if that's your thing.
