a soft prison for women

This is an email, a forward that I am forwarding by way of blog. Before you read further, here is joke:

Q. What is the most important instruction a fat woman always gives a tailor?
A. Make it lose.

Bra and health

Do you wear bra for the whole day and even at home?

I think we should go bra-free after reading this article.
It' s a message for our health.

For years, a lot of articles with regards to the causes of breast
cancer point to an unhealthy diet and lack of exercise as the major links to
this disease which happens to be the biggest killer among women during
these last two decades.

Perhaps the most convincing article I have ever read with regards to this matter is one which links breast cancer to the wearing of bras.

In the Bra and Breast Cancer Study in the United States , It was discovered that women with breast cancer had a history of sporting tighter and longer bra-wearing than did the women who had not (yet) developed the disease.
In fact, virtually the entire cancer group wore bras over 12 hours.
When a woman wears a tight bra, she subjects her breasts to pressure,
closing off the lymphatic pathway from the breast to the nodes.
This causes fluid built-up swelling, tenderness and cyst formation.
Toxins must be flushed out via the lymphatic.
However, a bra-constricted breast cannot adequately perform this
cleansing process, resulting in toxin accumulation in the breast.
Truthfully, bras are creating droopy, weak breasts......the breast
relies on the bras for artificial support; the body loses its ability
to support the breast by itself.
This is why many women feel uncomfortable without the bra.
What is the solution to breast cancer then?
And definately sleep without them.
There is a remarkable success rate for recovery from fibrocystic
breast disease within 10 days to two weeks of going bra-free.
Many women have tried going bra-less and recorded a miraculous
improvement in their health!

Bra burning is no longer a feminist issue... It is now a battle
between life and death.
