PHILADELPHIA, PA – Attention ladies, there’s new information out about whether or not it’s safe to wear a bra.

Well, we got the guys attention now.

Remember years ago, when women were freaking out after the mammary myth spread that bras caused cancer? Well, support for that theory seems to be sagging. A new study from the Medical Journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention says bras aren't linked to breast cancer.

The study says ‘there is a scarcity of credible scientific studies’ and ‘no aspect of bra wearing, including bra cup size … and average number of hours/days worn’ raises the risk of cancer.

So, stop burning your bras. It looks like your underwire won’t put you six feet under.

As for all you gentlemen out there, keep wishing. It looks like the lady lumps will remain restricted. So, until the next study is released – Ta ta!
