Authors have defended the study, saying that knowing if certain phenotypes - or bodily characteristics - were more susceptible to severe endometriosis would be useful. The lead researcher, Dr Paolo Vercellini... said: "What, are you gay?"  Critics also noted the women's likeness to Italian actress Sophia Loren

meanmutton: FTFA: The women taking in part in the study had not given their consent to be judged for their attractiveness and did not know this was happening as part of their medical consultations. The study received ethics approval and was publicly funded by the University of Milan school of medicine. The authors asked the women about their sexual history and measured their body mass index, waist-to-hip ratio and breast-to-underbreast ratio. Only Caucasian women were selected for inclusion in the study.

Holy shiat. How did anyone think this was okay?


It was for science!!
