A Chinese has grown “man boobs” because the fried chicken he had been eating was full of growth hormones, doctors discovered.
The 26-year-old college graduate and big fan of the fast food was told by medics to cut down his intake of fried chicken, after he reported that his breasts were growing ever larger.
Doctors found that the issue was caused by the growth hormones in the chicken he had been eating, The People’s Daily reports.

Li Chen, 26, noticed that his breasts were getting larger over the years and grew ever more concerned. Yet, too shy, Li didn’t do anything about it until his “man boobs” grew so large that people started noticing.
Visits to the swimming pool or the gym were now impossible, because strangers would stare and mock him or talk behind his back.
Finally, the man mustered the courage to speak to a doctor in Wenzhou city, in East China’s Zhejiang Province.
The medics eventually diagnosed the problem and it was a hormonal imbalance caused by his love for takeaway chicken meals.
The doctors explained that Li’s “breast growth” was most probably brought about by eating too much of his beloved fast food, which contains hormones given to the chickens to expedite their growth.
It is unknown what Li’s treatment will be, but doctors advised the victim to eat less fried chicken and add more fruit and vegetables to his diet.
