Our culture imposes on us that women must wear bras. If you do not wear it you will look vulgar, cause others to feel uncomfortable etc. Susan G. Komen association says that bras are a health hazard is a myth, but research suggests otherwise. This article will help you see the truth. Is your bra a habit or necessity?
“The bra/breast cancer connection is a thing of myth, according to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the American Cancer Society (ACS). But at least five research studies have shown that there IS a strong connection between breast cancer and bra wearing for many hours per day. Some scientists are calling for a boycott of Komen and the ACS, because they say this cover-up is costing lives.
According to medical anthropologists Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer, problem with bras concerns that they restrict the flow of lymphatic fluid, keeping toxins in the chest, which have nowhere to go. Scientists compare this problem with the feet and ankles which in long flights are captured in shoes and it is producing the swelling. Why? It all happens because the lymph fluids descend into the lower limbs and has nowhere to go.
Singer and Grismaijer, co-authors of Dressed to Kill, say that the chance to get breast cancer is due to more than 10 hours a day wearing a bra. A woman wearing a bra 24/7 is 125 times more likely to develop the breast cancer than women who rarely or never worn a bra. Women and girls who sleep in their bra, they have a 75% chance of developing the breast cancer at some point in their life. ”
