Can Underwire Bras Cause Breast Cancer?

Droopy Myths…

The rumor has been aired in 1995 by a book called ‘Dressed to Kill’ by Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer blaming the Bra to be Cancer carriers. It miraculously claims that women who wear underwire bras for 12 hours a day have a much higher risk of developing breast cancer than women who do not wear bras.

There is a list of claims made in this context. I am trying to pin down some of them here to clear the doubt around every possible corner:

  • Underwire, Tight, Or Badly Fitted Bras can cause Breast Cancer.
  • Sleeping In Your Bra can cause Breast Cancer.
  • Wearing A Bra For Too Long can cause Breast Cancer.
  • Women with Heavier Breasts should not wear Underwire Bras to avoid Breast Cancer.
  • Women who don’t wear Bra never get Breast Cancer.

Weaving Their Own Theories, Own Stories……

People always have to say something and someone to blame. Best suited gnomes while they try to conclude their fictitious judgments by proclaiming that bras restrict the lymph system, which results in a build-up of toxins in the breasts. Underwire bras cause breast cancer by blocking the drainage of lymph fluid from the bottom of the breast so it can’t get back into your body.

We know that these folk-tales can be a bit unnerving, though, so let’s peep in the logic behind these Weaved Stories. I love to serve them as critics!

Uplifting Reality B’s

Luckily, the knitted stories already got their critics as the renowned American Cancer Society, which states there is no evidence that compression of the lymph nodes by bras causes Breast Cancer. There is no sufficient evidence that any types of bras cause Breast Cancer.
Let rip off the layers of truth behind the myths.

Underwire, Tight, Or Badly Fitting Bras Cause Breast Cancer?

Well, Take a long sigh of relief. There’s no need to give up on your favorite B’s.

American Cancer Society has dropped this fallacy long before. The reality stating the reality to body fluids travel up and into the underarm lymph nodes, not towards the underwire.

Some lunatic minds weeded the thought that metal underwires (for all those don’t know, its the part that goes underneath the breast providing extra support and push), tight or badly fitting bras can cause compression in the chest area. Compression indeed can prevent the lymph system from clearing toxins and can cause Breast Cancer.

Bravo! High five to the Storyteller. I wonder why people are so obsessed with someone’s innerwear.

Scientific Study

Even Science denies the rumor of association of Bra with Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer is actually gene mutations leading to rapid cell divisions and has nothing to do with the lymph system’s operations. Don’t Trust Me, Trust Science.
Experts have ceased the fact that clothing you choose to wear (undergarments included!) does no impact at all on your risk of developing Breast Cancer.

We are yet to consider other myths and facts related to wearing Bra. This misconception needs scientific logic and facts to deny the myths. But there are some points to keep in mind which could indeed be hazardous. We will also discuss how can we fall in terms with our favorite B’s.
