Does the type of bra you wear put you at risk to breast cancer?

Claims say that underwire bras compress the lymphatic system of the breast, causing toxins to accumulate and cause breast cancer, have been widely debunked as unscientific. The consensus is that neither the type of bra you wear nor the tightness of your underwear or other clothing has any connection to breast cancer risk. Let’s bust the silly myth about Breast Cancer !!

 

#Myth about Breast Cancer

Women who normally wear a bra for 12 or more hours a day develop breast cancer at higher rates that women who never wear bras. In different versions of this rumor, the toxic bras may be tight fitting, fit badly, or have underwires. As a result of this routine restriction, the breast’s lymph system is blocked, causing the accumulation of toxins inside the breast – which causes breast cancer. The myth goes on to propose that breasts which swing free of a bra actually massage the mammary lymph system and constantly cleanse themselves of carcinogens.
Does wearing bra put you at risk for breast cancer?

 

How it happens ? Possibility of the myth !!

Your breast’s lymph system does not drain into the main part of your breast. Instead, as anyone who has had a sentinel node biopsy can tell you, the lymph system drains out of the breast into your underarm lymph nodes. Bras – even compression bras – can’t prevent the circulation of blood and lymph from your breast. Breast cancer occurs when mutated genes cause cells to grow like wildfire, and we don’t know what causes those genetic mutations.

Possible Side Effects Of Wearing Bras

Women have had problems while wearing bras. Breast pain, skin irritation, or even contact with an exposed underwire can cause discomfort. Speaking of those wires – some women are allergic to the metal and may develop a rash when a wire gets out of bounds. If your breasts are fibrocystic, or if your breasts are growing due to pregnancy, bras can certainly become uncomfortable. Very full breasts may cause back pain, muscle tension, or even headaches. Have a professional bra fitting, or find your proper bra size to avoid bothersome bras.

The American Cancer Society says that no scientifically valid studies have been done to prove the truth of the “bras cause breast cancer” myth. ACS mentions one epidemiologic study that compares rates of breast cancer for braless women and bra-wearing women. This study reported that risk was slightly less for braless women. But the researchers admit that bras themselves don’t seem to be the smoking gun. Most women who go braless are fairly lean and small breasted. Women who have full breasts or who are overweight wear bras for support and comfort. Having extra body weight or having more than the average amount of breast tissue are factors that increases your risk for developing breast cancer.
