Go Braless!!

Extended bra wearingSydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer (husband-and-wife authors of Dressed to Kill, Avery Press, 1995) have discovered a possible trigger for breast cancer in interviews of 4,730 women in five major US cities, conducted between 1991 and 1993. They found that:
Women who wore their bras for 24 hours per day had a 3 out of 4 chance of developing breast cancer (their study included 2056 subjects for the cancer group and 2674 for the standard group).
Women who wore bras more than 12 hour per day but not to bed had a 1 out of 7 risk.
Women who wore their bras less than 12 hours per day had a 1 out of 152 risk.
Women who wore bras rarely or never had a 1 out of 168 chance of getting breast cancer.
The World Health Organization calls chemical toxins the primary cause of cancer. Poisons accumulating in breast tissue are normally flushed by clear lymph fluid into large clusters of lymph nodes nestling in the armpits and upper chest. Because lymphatic vessels are very thin, they are extremely sensitive to pressure and are easily compressed. Chronic minimal pressure on the breasts can cause lymph valves and vessels to close.

A look at the breast cancer rate in countries where bra-wearing is not the norm shows a very low incidence of breast cancer. Japanese women living in Japan, where bra-wearing is uncommon, have a very low incidence of breast cancer; however in second generation Japanese-American women, the breast cancer rate sky-rockets to match that of the Western world.

The overall increase found between 24-hour wearing and not wearing at all was 125-fold.

    very interesting! do women really wear a bra for 24 hours straight? i couldn’t imagine. they’re so uncomfortable! but then again, since i really have no boobs i only wear a bra because i’m self conscious of the headlight factor. i guess if you bigger it helps?

    I’ve read about this before…it is odd that us humans wear them lol.
    Luckily I only wear one when I leave the house…which isn’t very often these days. 😛
    I wish I could go bra-less all the time, but well, gravity is not my friend. 😉

    I had no idea! this is really interesting. So now that I’ve stopped wearing my regular bras because I’ve gotten too used to my comfy little tank bras that are loose and really have no support..maybe thats not so bad after all..not as constricting.

    Sleeping in a bra…I know people do it..but I can’t imagine!
