Breast cancer is one of the major killers of women in the United States. It is also one of the most overdiagnosed and overtreated conditions. Sadly, most women have no idea that simply not wearing a bra can have a major impact on the likelihood of developing breast cancer.
You probably didn't hear about a recent study from Brazil, published in May, 2016 in the journal Advances in Oncology Research and Treatments.
Entitled, “Wearing a Tight Bra for Many Hours a Day is Associated with Increased Risk of Breast Cancer”, the study echoes another recent study, done in 2015 in Kenya, which also confirmed the bra-cancer link.
“This study demonstrated the existence of a relationship between the use of a tight bra when associated with an increased number of hours wearing it and the risk of breast cancer among pre- and post-menopausal women.”
Studies from Venezuela, Scotland and numerous studies out of China also agree. Wearing tight bras for long hours each day is a leading cause of breast cancer.
But you probably haven't heard about any of this. That's because the multi-billion dollar cancer industry doesn't want you to know about it, and they control mainstream media's coverage of cancer.
And with Pink October just around the corner, they want you to open up your purses, not your minds.
Cancer is big business, and Pink charities rake in the dough donated by hard working women who walk and run for a cure – while wearing cancer-causing bras!
Fortunately, more women are questioning the need for a bra, and that leads to questioning the need to accept the discomforts and diseases bras cause. Headaches, backaches, nerve damage to the hands, deep shoulder grooves, droopy breasts, breast pain, cysts and lumps, and breast cancer are some of the problems bras cause.
Like the corset, bras are harmful garments that constrict and shape the body through pressure, which impairs circulation, especially the circulation of the immune system's lymphatic pathways. This results in fluid accumulation in the breasts, causing cysts, pain, and tissue toxification.
As the new study from Brazil explains, breast cancer most likely has to do with the compression and impairment of the lymphatic system by tightly worn bras. “Bras and other external tight clothing can impede flow cutting off lymphatic drainage so that toxic chemicals are trapped in the breast.”
From our research and our U.S. 1991-93 Bra and Breast Cancer Study, which is described in our book, Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras, we found that bra-free women have about the same incidence of breast cancer as a man, while the tighter and longer the bra is worn the higher the incidence rises, to over 100 times higher for a 24/7 bra user compared to bra-free.
It takes the wind out of the cancer sales pitch when the public knows how to prevent breast cancer by simply no longer wearing constricting bras for long hours each day of their lives.
It should sound obvious that tight bras are a health hazard. As studies continue to be published around the world proving bras are causing breast cancer, and women experience the health benefits of being bra-free, the cancer industry will somehow have to find a way to accept a bra-cancer link that it has been denying for over 20 years.
In the meantime, if the Susan G. Komen Foundation or American Cancer Society or any other cancer charity asks for your money for a cancer cure while denying the bra-cancer cause, I suggest you send them your bra instead of your money. They may get the message.
