Is It Possible That Bras Increase Chances Of Breast Cancer?

girl-going-bralesss-under-blue-shirtWe don’t know for sure. It’s only a theory, but the logic makes sense.

Women’s libbers have the right idea! Burn those bras and let those girls stand out proudly. Bras restrict lymph flow. Lymph is made to move best with non-restricted body motion, massage and exercise. Women wear restrictive clothing that severely limits lymph fluid movement.

In addition, bras like many other clothing are composed of materials that are petrochemical derivatives. This means that they are made from ingredients that came from byproducts of oil. Oil and gas with all its derivatives are carcinogenic.

Most of our clothing is treated with chemicals derived from gasoline byproducts including bras. In direct contact with the breasts, this allows whatever chemicals in the material to penetrate the tissue and enter the body. The more a woman sweats, the more prevalent the absorption into our circulatory system of these toxic chemicals.

Simple Tips That May Help Lower Risk of Breast Problems

1. Don’t wear a bra

2. If you must wear a bra, wear one for the least amount of time per day

3. No synthetic fibers. Those materials don’t breathe which also causes more sweat. This moisture increases absorption of any cancer-causing petrochemical derivatives in the bra.

4. Purchase a bra made of cotton or bamboo

5. Wash a new bra at least 2-3 times initially to get out any toxic chemicals that were used in the manufacturing process.

6. Don’t wear bra padding because they also contain ingredients that may increase cancer risk.

7. At the very least, go to bed without a bra to decrease daily time exposure.

These tips can only help, especially in women with fibrocystic breast disease. In addition, it will allow your significant other to visually experience features that have been largely hidden away by man-made materials.

Thank you to Dr. Martin Kuhis of Denver, Colorado for suggesting and speaking to me about this topic.

Want to add what author Mr. Sydney Ross Singer of the book, “Dressed To Kill” sent to me as a comment. Thank you Mr. Singer for this priceless information. I recommend reading his book coauthored with Soma Grismaijer.

There is also science behind the bra-cancer link.
STUDIES THAT SUPPORT THE BRA/CANCER LINK:

1991 Harvard study (CC Hsieh, D Trichopoulos (1991). Breast size, handedness and breast cancer risk. European Journal of Cancer and Clinical Oncology 27(2):131-135.). This study found that, “Premenopausal women who do not wear bras had half the risk of breast cancer compared with bra users…”

1991-93 U.S. Bra and Breast Cancer Study by Singer and Grismaijer, published in Dressed To Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras (Avery/Penguin Putnam, 1995; ISCD Press, 2005). Found that bra-free women have about the same incidence of breast cancer as men. 24/7 bra wearing increases incidence over 100 times that of a bra-free woman.

Singer and Grismaijer did a follow-up study in Fiji, published in Get It Off! (ISCD Press, 2000). Found 24 case histories of breast cancer in a culture where half the women are bra-free. The women getting breast cancer were all wearing bras. Given women with the same genetics and diet and living in the same village, the ones getting breast disease were the ones wearing bras for work.

A 2009 Chinese study (Zhang AQ, Xia JH, Wang Q, Li WP, Xu J, Chen ZY, Yang JM (2009). [Risk factors of breast cancer in women in Guangdong and the countermeasures]. In Chinese. Nan Fang Yi Ke Da Xue Xue Bao. 2009 Jul;29(7):1451-3.) found that NOT sleeping in a bra was protective against breast cancer, lowering the risk 60%.

A 2011 a study was published, in Spanish, confirming that bras are causing breast disease and cancer.http://www.portalesmedicos.com/publicaciones/articles/3691/1/Patologias-mamarias-generadas-por-el-uso-sostenido-y-seleccion-incorrecta-del-brassier-en-pacientes-que-acuden-a-la-consulta-de-mastologia- It found that underwired and push-up bras are the most harmful, but any bra that leaves red marks or indentations may cause disease.

A 2014 Scottish study found a significant increase in breast cancer incidence in the upper outer quadrant of the breast, and was attributed to bra wearing, armpit shaving, and the use of deodorants and antiperspirants. http://www.scotsman.com/news/health/bras-linked-to-rise-in-breast-cancer-1-3422526

  3. Thanks for sharing this very important information. I never used to sleep with a bra on and then one day I was watching Dr. Oz or the doctor’s or whatever show it was and they were saying it was best to keep your bra on when you go to bed to prevent sagging. Ever since I saw that, that’s what I’ve been doing. This bra is coming off right now. LOL 🙂
