The controversy behind the use of a tight bra and dangers to health continues. Some people argue that a tight bra can trigger breast cancer although some scientists oppose it. Recently experts from Harvard University claim to find evidence of a link between bras and breast cancer.
Researchers reasoned, the use of a very tight bra can restrict blood circulation and can damage the lymphatic tissues. These conditions resulted in a lack of oxygen and nutrients are delivered to the tissue cells. This is especially true in women who wear bras for more than 12 hours a day and wear it when sleeping.
The study also found that middle-class women are at higher risk of breast cancer due to their busy every day.
As is known, the lymphatic vessels in the breast tissue is very thin, they are very sensitive to pressure and easily compressed. “The main reason why a very tight bra bad for breast health is because they restrict the lymph flow in your breasts. Normally the lymph fluid washes out waste material and toxins from the breast, but the bra inhibits this action so that toxins can begin to accumulate in the breast that can be assist the development of cancer, “said Dr. Mody MD.
Meanwhile, Dr. Kamath Smiti also voiced similar things. He said, “Wearing a tight bra, especially when sleep will prevent the flow of lymphatic and possibly cause anoxia (low oxygen content), where associated with fibrosis, which in turn has been associated with increased cancer risk.”
