Your Bra May Be Killing You by fabartdiy

The bra is deeply woven into the female fabric of almost all cultures worldwide, but does it really do more harm than good? The Susan G. Komen association says the idea that bras are a health hazard is a myth, but research studies say otherwise. This article is a must read to reveal a different perspective to the culturally accepted bra habit. Really Good to know for ladies to do something at least for the sake of health.

The bra/breast cancer connection is a thing of myth, 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. See the analytic chart of breast cancer VS bra wearing behavior below:

The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras, say that wearing a bra more than 12 hours a day dramatically increases the risk of getting breast cancer. A woman who wears a bra 24/7 is 125 times more likely to develop breast cancer than a woman who rarely or never wears a bra. Those who sleep in their bra, they found, have a 75% chance of developing breast cancer at some point in their lives.

Even limiting the wearing of tight bras can make a difference. Women who wear a bra more than 12 hours, but not to bed, have an one in seven risk of breast cancer, but wearing it less than 12 hours reduces her risk to one in 152, while cutting it out completely carries a one in 168 risk.  So ladies, you know what you should do?
