Just like Hollywood movie stars and buff body builders, macho military men are not immune to man boobs.

Soldiers with Man Boobs, a German newspaper, recently released an article about dozens of soldiers in the Wachbataillon unit suffering from gynecomastia, on the left side only.

While gynecomastia generally affects both sides of the chest, some studies have indicated that the disease can also be asymmetric, with symptoms occurring more often on the left side of the body, according to the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine.

What Caused It?

Military man boob epidemic. What is being done?

According to Professor Bjorn Krapohl, the pandemic is caused by repetitive slamming of heavy artillery into the soldier’s left chest area during drills. All of the pounding in the same region has stimulated the production of hormones that can cause excessive male breast tissue.

In order to stop any further gynecomastia symptoms, the soldiers need to modify their Guard Battalion drills.

During a study of the German soldiers, experts found that the guards with man boobs had significant differences than a control group of healthy men without any signs of gynecomastia. The soldiers had lower testosterone levels and a higher fat to body mass index ratio.
