Do people actually get paid to do this kind of research?


Millions of women may be jogging their way to sagging breasts as they set off on New Year fitness regimes without suitable bras, research suggests.

[...]

Dr Joanne Scurr who carried out the research said women needed to be aware of the effects of exercising without properly supporting their breasts.

"People rightly spend time and effort to get the right footwear for exercise and it is equally important to wear the correct sports bra.

    Such joy, indeed. And, we are not even talking about data analysis and number crunching and conference invitations and press meets ...

    I'm not sure measuring the sagginess of breasts would be that rewarding.
