Default pueraria mirifica

Has anybody heard much about pueraria mirifica for breast enlargement? A female friend of mine mentioned a gum that has that as its active ingredient. This is the site for the gum:

http://www.getbustupgum.com/bustupgum.html

I can't seem to find any hard evidence on its effectiveness or lack thereof. There seems to be some research on it for post-menopausal women, but it doesn't look like it's been studied much.

While the gum is very pricy, pueraria mirifica supplements are fairly cheap ($15 for a 2-3 month supply). Would there be negative effects for a young female adult to take due to the phytoestrogens?

Well, there are supplements that use the active ingredient in that gum. I am not inquiring specifically about the gum, as the gum is ridiculously priced and sold out. Pueraria mirifica seems to be used for medical purposes, but there isn't much on it that I can find.

Big in Japan.

As are vending machines containing schoolgirl's knickers.

Seriously Donald, is there something you want to tell us?
