Powerful Information for Women

By decreasing the amount of hours per day that you wear a bra, you also decrease your chances of developing breast cancer. Lymphatic fluid is allowed to bathe the cells through movement. Movement keeps the breasts happy and functioning optimally. Wearing a bra weakens the connective tissue, causing the breast to create less natural support of its own. I am not advocating that you “burn your bras,” but the less hours you wear a bra, the better! Also, exercise is imperative to getting the lymph flowing! The following information gathered from a study in 1995 is impressive!

Hours in a Bra Per Day*/Chance of Breast Cancer*

  • 24 hours : 75.00% (3 out of 4)
  • >12 hours (but not while sleeping) : 14.28% (1 out of 7)
  • <12 hours : 00.66% (1 out of 152)
  • 0 hours (or rarely) : 00.60% (1 out of 168)

Great book to read for more on breast health:
“Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras” by Singer and Grismaijer

  1. Samara does lymphatic drainage. It’s a great treatment to boost the immune system- not just for breast issues. She helped me immensely and is helping a lot of people in the city too. She has an ad in natural awakenings, or anyone can email me for her information at pemaom@gmail.com.

    love and light!
