New study that claims to debunk the bra-breast cancer link ironically confirms it

(NaturalNews) The National Cancer Institute hired the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to determine whether bras are linked to breast cancer. A primary purpose of the study was to prove that bras are not linked to breast cancer, which kills about 40,000 in the U.S. each year, according to the American Cancer Society.

The controversy began in 1995, with the book Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras, which concluded that continual bra use blocks the elimination of toxins from the lymphatic system, leading to breast cancer, which affects about one in eight American women during their lifetimes.

Cancer "experts" from organizations like the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen and the National Cancer Institute have been shouting from the rooftops for 20 years that there is absolutely no link between bras and breast cancer. Would they support any study that proves them wrong, takes money out of their pockets and tarnishes their carefully crafted reputations?

The Hutchinson study, "Bra Wearing Not Associated with Breast Cancer Risk: A Population-Based Case-Control Study," was published in the journal of Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. It examined the bra-wearing habits of 1,044 women 55 or older who had been diagnosed between 2000 and 2004 with "invasive breast cancer," and 469 healthy post-menopausal bra-wearing women. The study did not include bra-free women or women under 55.

The study's lead author, doctoral student Lu Chen, said: "The [cancer] risk was similar no matter how many hours per day women wore a bra, whether they wore a bra with underwire, or at what age they began wearing a bra."

Bottom line: The study concluded that women can now be "reassured" that bras are not causing breast cancer.

Then again, a bra-breast cancer link would pose a serious financial threat to the bulging bottom line of the lingerie industry, estimated to be worth approximately $29.23 billion.

But would this link also be a threat to the allopathic cancer "research treatment" racket? According to Dr. Glenn Warner, an esteemed cancer specialist in the United States: "We have a multi-billion dollar industry that is killing people, right and left, just for financial gain. Their idea of research is to see whether two doses of this poison is better than three doses of that poison."

Study flaws

(1) This study focused exclusively on women over 55 who wore bras.

(2) The study did not have a proper control group or baseline of women who did not wear bras.

(3) The study excluded younger bra-free women, thus dismissing a previous Harvard study
which found that "PRE-menopausal women who were bra-wearers had over 100% increased incidence of breast cancer compared to bra free women," GreenMedInfo reported.

(4) Three relevant studies that showed a significant, positive link between bras and breast cancer: A 2008 China study, a 2011 Venezuelan study and a 2014 Scottish study were ignored.

(5) Bra tightness causes lymphatic constriction and is a key factor in the bra-breast cancer link but was overlooked.

Lead researcher Lu Chen omitted that the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center is an annual monetary recipient from "Bra Dash" fundraisers, where women wear bras on the outside of their clothing during a 5K race to raise funds for cancer.

Ironically, this "myth busting" study actually confirms that most women who have worn bras for 40-plus years will get breast cancer, while some won't. The cigarette-lung-cancer link revealed a similar pattern.

Can we expect unbiased research from those with so much money and reputation at stake?
