Smoking Can Make Your Nipples Fall Off

Need one more reason to stop smoking cigarettes?

From Dr. Anthony Youn's recent post on CNN Health:
In my memoir “In Stitches,” I told the story of a smoker whose nipples turned purple while undergoing a breast lift surgery. Purple is the precursor to black. Black is the precursor to falling off. To save the patient -- and her nipples -- we turned to the only treatment available. 
We went medieval. 
We used leeches.
