Get breast cancer because Bra? It's Just A Myth

Seattle, us. during this, bra was often accused as one of the causes of breast cancer, especially if worn for too long. In 2010, a study claimed to successfully prove that women who wear a bra more than 12 hours, a higher risk of developing breast cancer.

Is that true? "We found no evidence of wear bra has anything to do with breast cancer," said researcher named Lu Chen from the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle.

Chen felt the need to straighten this issue after finding the research results have beenpublished in 2005. Almost similar to the results of studies from America of yesteryear, the book says use of the bra can inhibit the lymph circulation as well as the body's waste disposal so as to increase the risk of breast cancer.

To that end, Chen and his team decided to observe more than 1,000 women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer in the period 2000-2004. As a comparison, thoseinvolving 469 women who don't have breast cancer. The overall participant has entered a period of menopause, with the range of age between 55-74 years of age.

Then the researchers collect data among other participants, does bra size participantwearing a bra with underwire, how long each participant wearing a bra every day, and when they started using bra breast as a buffer.

Each participant also was asked about a history of breast cancer in their families, theirheight and weight, education level, race, incomeand whether they have ever lived amamogram procedure in the near future or not.

The Result? "There is no relation to the habit of wearing a bra with the risk of breast cancer.No matter how many hours you wear it in the day or does Your underwire bra features andsince when did You start using it, "Chen was quoted as saying the knot from the journalCancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers Prevention &, Tuesday (9/9/2014).

Yet another case when you are wearing the wrong size bra. A research of Australia found 80 percent of women wear the wrong size bra. But a mistake in choosing this bra can have an impact on the appearance of the body health as well.

Some types of disorders are associated with the selection of the wrong bra size, among others, back pain, shortness of breathlacerations on his back or breast, headaches todigestive disorders.
