Why your boobs start to eat themselves after breastfeeding is over.

I know most of our young mummies won't find this funny but this is inevitable.
Research has shown that nursing mothers breasts go from Milk producing state to appendages because of what is seen as molecular switch which controls their transformation from milk secretors to cellular eaters.

According to New Scientist, Women’s breasts comprise a network of ducts, covered by a layer of fatty tissue. During pregnancy, hormonal signals cause epithelial cells lining the ducts to proliferate and form ball-like structures called alveoli, which is where milk is made when the baby is born. However, once women stop breastfeeding, these structures self-destruct, a process that involves massive cellular suicide, and the removal of the debris. What you need to know about this that your immune cells has no take or effect on this degeneration.
