Beijing: A 26-year-old Chinese man has reportedly developed breasts, which his doctors say has been caused by hormones in his favourite fried chicken. 

Li visited doctors after his chest began to change and become larger and larger.

Doctors told him that the hormones in the chicken were the reason behind his inflated breasts and he should eat more vegetables and fruits to reverse the growth, People's Daily Online reported.

Gynecomastia -- the enlargement of breast tissue in males -- can be caused when an imbalance of oestrogen and testosterone occurs.

However, there are no authentic studies which officially links the condition to diet.
