This figure does't include implants for breast cancer sufferers who've had a mastectomy though.


    Incorrect: The average size of women in Australia is a dress size of 16.

    The average age of the onset of puberty in Caucasian females is now between 10-11. When I was a kid it was around 13-14, so its definately starting earlier than previously. No one knows exactly what is causing the onset of this earlier age for puberty:

    What is interesting to note is that the largest growth markets for cosmetic surgery, including the horrific process of leg stretching are China, South Korea, Japan and Thailand. All of which happen to be Asian

    Thanks Ian for your information. Obviously you care to research more than I do.

    It was actually 2 Aussie friends (1 guy and 1 gal) who told me that the average size of an Aussie woman is about 12-14. I guess they were outdated. Besides, just a couple of months ago, there was a national TV current affairs documentary about growing obesity rates in Australia.

    The earlier onset of puberty, in not only the Caucasoids but also Mongoloids, in affluent countries was thought to be caused by rich food/diet. (Again, I won't say that I'm totally correct since I'm no expert, and I won't really care to check it up.)

    So, if models are too skinny, maybe they are deprived of MacDonalds and KFC?

    Not really, I knew the stats anyway, just confirmed them via references. It's all part of knowing the product as it were as I was shooting a load of cattledog sessions in the past couple of weeks .... yawn.

    I'd not be paying much attention to current affairs programs on Chan's 7,9 or 10 as they are frequently factually inaccurate, or worse, outright manipulators of the truth.

    The reseach on the earlier onset of puberty has at present no definite answers, it appears to be an unknown at present, though diet, environmental and social factors etc seem to be involved.
