The bra is a known contributor to the rise of breast cancer in our
A carefully monitored retroactive study found that the more hours a
woman wears a bra, the greater are her chances of developing breast
cancer. (Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer, Dressed to Kill,
Garden City Park, New York, Avery Publishing Group, 1995, pp. 110-126).
The problem with bras, or any restrictive clothing for that matter, is
that they block the circulation of the lymph system. The lymph system
is an important part of the body’s purification system. If the tissue
of the breasts is constricted due to a close fitting garment, the
toxins in the lymph system of this area are not allowed to drain
properly. Inadequate drainage causes more and more toxins to build up
in the area.
At the end of the day, take off your clothes and look in the mirror. If
your bra, camisole, or any other clothing has left a line on your body,
it is blocking off the circulation of your lymph system.
In the study connecting bras and breast cancer, women who wore
dangerously tight or restrictive bras were asked if their bras were
comfortable. Many said they were!
Throughout history, women have become accustomed to a variety of
clothing that was detrimental to health. We would never dream of
returning to the corset or to binding our feet. It is time for the bra
to become history, as well.
