"Study: Women With Bigger Breasts More Likely To Get Breast Cancer"

According to the article, there's now evidence of a genetic link between breast size and incidence of breast cancer. As reader Elliott observes:

"For a given probability of cellular mutation, a larger sample size has more mutated cells."

He then makes an interesting correlation:

Which prompts him to wonder:

"Should insurance companies/Obamacare encourage breast reduction procedures to reduce future cancer treatment costs?"
