Whether bras can cause sagging, prevent sagging or cause breast cancer is lately great debate which leaves most women utterly confused about the effects of wearing it.
Undeniable is the importance of bras as support for breasts, especially large-sized ones, because bustier women suffer of discomfort, even back pain, without the support bras provide
Nevertheless, not all bras types are beneficial. If, for example, you prefer the latest styles, or those that make your breast look bigger or perkier, as opposed to those that provide best support, you could be putting yourself at risk of some serious health issues.
Why is it bad for your health?
There was a study conducted, which proved that wearing bras can cause cancer. This theory is grounded on how the body self-cleanses of toxins, as well as research results between women who did and didn’t wear bras and the corresponding breast cancer rates.
Another study which included 4,000 women was taken by anthropologists Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer, authors of the book Dressed to Kill: The Link between Breast Cancer and Bras. They explained that it’s the compromised lymphatic flow caused by ill-fitting bras that actually increases the risk of developing breast cancer.
The findings revealed:
• Girls who wore their bras 24 hours per day had a 3 out of 4 chance of developing breast cancer,
• Girls who wore bras more than 12 hour per day, but not to bed, had a 1 out of 7 risk,
• Girls who wore their bras less than 12 hours per day had a 1 out of 52 risk, and
• Girls who wore bras rarely or never had a 1 out of 168 chance of getting breast cancer.
In addition, Singer and Grismaijer also observed past bra-wearing behavior of the subjects, which is very important for a disease that takes such a long time to develop.
Many health experts and scientists say that wearing a tight fitting bra can cut off lymph drainage and it can lead to the development of breast cancer. The lymph function to eliminate all the toxins compromised. For example, potentially dangerous source of toxins which can build up if lymph drainage is impaired is aluminum from antiperspirants.
The function of the lymphatic circulation is essential for a lot of tissues. The formation of breast cancer appears mostly because the lymphatic drainage and toxic chemicals are being cut off and enclosed inside the breast.
Women who chose to stop wearing bras gained more natural support as their muscle tissue strengthened. Moreover wearing a bra can affect a woman’s health in other mechanisms, one of which is temperature. As external organs that naturally have a lower temperature and studies confirm that cancers can depend on temperature.
