Bra Culture And Breast Cancer

29th, Apil 016

Santosh Kumar Sigh - “Throughout the world, the only culture where there is breast cancer is where there are bras”.Sydney Singer.

In the early 1990’s Sydney Singer , medical anthropologist studied 4,500 women in five cities across  the U.S about their habits in purchasing and wearing bras. Though his study did not take into account other lifestyle factors, the results were very striking .

The odds of getting breast cancer dramatically increased with bra-wearing over 12 hours per day .
Women who wore their bras 24 hours per day had a 3 out of 4 chance of developing breast cancer.
Women who wore bras more then 12 hours per day but not to bed had a 1 out of 7 risk .
Women who wore bras rarely or never had a 1 out of 168 chance of getting breast cancer.

Bra restricts the lymph flow in the breasts. The lightest possible bras still exert pressures in excess of that found within lymphatic vessels . Lymph fluid washes out waste materials and other toxins from breast and can help cancer to develop .
Wearing bras decreases melatonin production. Melatonin is a powerful antioxidant and hormone that promotes good sleep, fight ageing , boosts immune system and slows the growth of certain types of cancer including breast cancer .

 Wear the correct bra size . Make sure it’s not too tight and without under wires or side panels because underwires can create extra pressure and tightness.
Wear a bra less then 12 hours daily .
Go braless as often as possible .
Never sleep with a bra on .
Do self message of the lymph glands under each arm , next to your breasts at least a few times a week.

There is no evidence that wearing bra could prevent sagging .Breast itself is not muscle , so keeping it toned up is an impossibility .
Breast is supported by ligaments .If breast ligaments act anything like other bodily ligaments , they may atrophy from the constant unnatural support from the bra ._source-healthnews;
