High heels can be used as a weapon of self-defense, but they can also seriously injure or kill a woman who wears them if she should get her heel caught on a wharf or in a busy subway.
Bras, on the other hand, cannot be used as a weapon of self-defense. Women are often obliged to wear them not only because it is a very expensive fashion fad, but also because they are often required on the job.
However, studies have shown that wearing a bra increases a woman's chance of breast cancer because they are constrictive and cut off vital lymph and blood supply to the breasts.https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0757004628/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=0757004628&linkCode=as2&tag=httpwwwchanco-20
In 1995 the first edition of Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras revealed the disturbing results of a study that showed a notable correlation between the wearing of bras and the incidence of breast cancer. The women studied who wore bras 24 hours a day were 125 times more likely to have breast cancer compared to bra-free women.
Instead of experiencing interest in their research, Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer were subjected to a barrage of mercurial assaults. Industry representatives refused to consider the results and dismissed the book out of hand. Mr. Singer even became the target of personal scrutiny. The American Cancer Society took the unusual step of issuing statements of absolute condemnation that were devoid of scientific methodology. The authors had clearly upset the status quo.
But despite the continuous attacks, the evidence would not disappear. The authors were determined to get their message out. They were emboldened by people who contacted them from around the world with messages of support. New studies and research emerged that was consistent with their own research. So much so that it became clear that an updated book was needed.
So vociferous are the opponents of this theory that the publisher received threats if they proceeded with publication of the book. The details of this incident are included in the book's Foreword.
The second edition of Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras (Square One) has been updated to include:
• Additional references to historical awareness of the bra-cancer link
• Advice from British Medical Association that bras are the leading cause of breast pain and
requests for breast reduction surgery
· • Numerous additional supportive studies not included in the first edition ....

So, what does a woman do if breast cancer is prevalent in her family, and she decides not to wear a bra in public to prevent the likelihood of cancer?
What does a woman do if her priest and/or employer say that not wearing a bra is immodest?
I have posted this topic in the open for both men and women to see. A husband must protect his wife and give her support should she decide not to wear a bra.
There are also other dangerous apparel, one of which is the elastic back brace often required at places of employment where employees must stock the shelves. This poses the same risk as wearing a bra as it restricts the blood and lymph supply.
