Bras have been a topic of hot debate lately as they have been linked to causing cancer and sagging, but whether these claims are really true or not is still a question that women have.
But wearing a bra is actually good for some women with bigger busts as they suffer from back pains and other discomfort . But due to the trend of women wanting their boobs to look bigger and firmer women are wearing different kinds of bra’s that is putting their health at serious risk.
It might cause cancer
A study conducted using 4000 women shows that there are links that show that bras can cause breast cancer. The reason being compromised lymphatic flow caused by ill-fitting bras as explained by anthropologists Singer and Grismaijer, authors of the book Dressed to Kill: The Link between Breast Cancer and Bras as the lymph functions to drain toxins from the body and tight fitting bra’s cut off that process.
The study shows that:
- 3 out of 4 chance of developing breast cancer, have women who wore their bras 24 hours per day
- 1 out of 7 risk, have women who wore bras more than 12 hour per day, not to bed,
- women who wore their bras less than 12 hours per day had a 1 out of 52 risk
- Women that rarely or never wore had a 1 out of 168 chance of getting breast cancer.
So women please make sure to reduce the usage of bras and take them off before sleeping. Try to get a bra that fits you are provides you proper back and front support without it being too tight and suffocating. Remember, ill-fitting bra’s = chances of developing breast cancer.
