Dressed To Kill
The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras
by Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer

Singer and Grismaijer have collected striking evidence that bra-wearing may be a major risk factor associated with breast cancer: women who wear tight-fitting bras 24 hours a day are 125 times more likely to have breast cancer than women who do not wear bras at all. Their interpretation is that tight clothing inhibits the proper functioning of the lymphatic system (an internal network of vessels and nodes that flushes wastes from the body) and leads to a buildup of carcinogenic compounds in the constricted areas.

Seventy percent of breast cancer cases are unexplainable by current known risk factors. What's left? The authors contend that strong epidemiological evidence points to bra wearing. Women who wear a bra 24 hours a day are dramatically more likely to have breast cancer.

This book should be read by anyone concerned about breast cancer. Possibly a very important book that could save many lives.
