Why Do Men Have Nipples
Why have male nipples not dissapeared?

From Jerry Kennard, former About.com Guide


There seems to be a logical explanation about why women have nipples - for babies. But why do men's bodies retain what appears to be redundant body parts? The Darwinian natural selection process would seem to dictate that male nipples really should not be there. So what's the deal? Why do men have nipples?

The answer is that as embryos men and women have similar tissues and body parts. If anything the embryo follows a 'female template'. That is why nipples are present in both sexes. It is the effect of the genes, the Y chromosome and the hormone testosterone that brings about the changes and masculinises the embryo. Testosterone promotes the growth of the penis and testicles. Because nipples are there before this process begins the nipples stay!

Nipples and breast tissue have no function as such except for perhaps protecting the heart and lungs from injury.

Male Breasts Can Produce Milk and Get Breast Cancer
A certain level of the female hormone estrogen is present in all men. If, as a result of disease or a condition affecting hormones, breast tissue in men can grow (gynecomastia- abnormal enlargement of breasts,) and men can produce milk.

Gynacomastia is more commonly seen in adolescence, a period in development when hormones fluctuate a lot. It is also seen in some men with liver disease and sometimes in alcoholics.

Men can get breast cancer as well as women.

RE: The Demon Core (I'll throw some nerd down) - That really happened to a guy named Louis something. It was called tickling the tail of the dragon. I had no idea the great John whatsisname was in a movie about it. The coffee cup thing was fake of course but he really did slip his screwdriver and allowed the hemispheres to touch, however it was for a mere second or so. He was sick as soon as he left the building (one of the most reliable indicators of radiation poisoning is how long it takes for you to puke after exposure) and he was dead within nine days. And, he knew he would die not long after the fact.

It was called the demon core because that same exact core killed some other dipshit when he was building a wall of bricks to create a near-supercritical condition, and he biffed it too.

thats strange, according to the story I read, he died instead of being turned into a blue demi god... guess you can't believe everything you see in the movies.
