We can’t go without wearing bras and this is the wardrobe staple of every woman. There are various kinds of bras that are available in the market complying with the outfit. They go like- Halter bra, Off Shoulder Bra, Backless bra, Underwired bra, Padded bra, Non-padded bra, Seamless bra, Bralettes and what not. We all are programmed to wearing bras but scientists are opining against it now-a-days. Of course, this comes as a major shocker for us perfectionist women and we are wondering what made them say so? The primary reason, understandably is that wearing bras at a stretch can cause breast cancer. Here are many other causes pointed out by the scientists you need to heed:
Bras cause breast cancer:
Sad, but true. According to some new findings, excessive usage of bra can lead you into non malignant breast fibrocystic disease d malignant breast cancer. Of course, this makes for enough a reason to say NO to bra. These tumors can be very painful and you won’t want that excruciating pain at any point of your life, right?
According to Dr. Gragory Heigh of Florida, above 90% of women have started experiencing positive changes when they have stopped wearing bras. Scientists say that one must avoid wearing them 24/7.
Bras have a gravity link:
Contrary to popular belief, Sports Science researcher Jean-Denis Roulion, a professor based at the university of France-Compte, wearing bra at an early age did nothing to support the chest, reduce back pain or deter sagging of the breasts. Breasts being denied gravity brings to positive outcomes in your body, not medically, physiologically or anatomically. To be precise, they do just the opposite. Women tend to gain more muscle tone and support in the breast tissues if there is no bra used.
The study that supports the bra and cancer link:
According to a study conducted by the Havard University, premenopausal women who do not wear bras had half the risk of breast cancer compared to the bra users. Scientists also believe that the women who stopped wearing bras during their adolescence had a 7 millimeter lift in their nipples when compared to a regular bra user. Of course, that way we do have some control over how our breasts look over the time. It is also said that wearing bras for a long stretch can hamper the blood circulation and reduce the overall tone of our breasts.
According to Dr. Stafford Broumand, ” For younger women not wearing bras will lead to increased collagen production nd elasticity, which improves lift in the developing breasts”
However, we should not be afraid that if we have worn bras 24/7 all this while, we are likely to get cancer. We had a legit reason, that is keeping the breasts from moving around and bras are considered to be one of the important articles of clothing.
