Bras that Kill

Be afraid.
Be very afraid—if you wear a bra, especially on that is too tight.

Bras can kill. Dr. Elizabeth R. Vaughan, M.D., F.A.A.E.M., is convinced they can.

“It took 30 years of research before the dots were finally connected between tobacco smoke and lung cancer,” says Dr. Vaughn. “In pinning down suspicions about bras and breast cancer, I suspect we're about where we were in 1950 with our suspicions about cigarette smoke and lung cancer.”

Some strong suspicions, Doc. But you may be on to something. A study done by Singer and Grismaijer suggested that women who wear bras 24 hours a day may have more than a 100-fold greater incidence of breast cancer, compared to those who don't wear bras at all.
In their book, DRESSED TO KILL, they explain their theory. I hope you read it. Stop by the Place Where Mother Shops and get a copy. Your breast will thank you.
