This TPN Special with Host Rev. Tiffany White Sage Woman discusses the topic of the link between wearing a bra and breast cancer.
INSTANT BRA/BREAST CANCER GUEST: Sydney Ross Singer, co-author of Dressed To Kill: The Link between Breast Cancer and Bras.
The bra/breast cancer connection is a thing of myth, according to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the American Cancer Society (ACS). 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.
The problem with bras, according to medical anthropologists Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer, is that they restrict the flow of lymphatic fluid, thereby retaining toxins in the breast that have nowhere to go. They compare it to the feet and ankle swelling that occurs on long flights, because the lymphatic fluid pools in the lower extremities and isn’t allowed to circulate.
Singer and Grismaijer, co-authors of Dressed To Kill: 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.
