Bras, Breast Cancer, and Boundless Greed


There are a lot of beautiful things in the world. Things like roses (as below), or a well-formed female chest (as at left).

And these are things you have to enjoy while they are there!


The roses look pretty good through August, and sometimes September, but then the cold comes, and their beauty is gone.


The breasts are often removed when breast cancer strikes.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women today (after lung cancer) and is the most common cancer among women, excluding nonmelanoma skin cancers. According to the American Cancer Society, about 1.3 million women will be diagnosed with breast cancer annually worldwide. About 465,000 will die from the disease. (Breast Cancer: Statistics on Incidence, Survival, and Screening,

Lung cancer is primarily caused by products offered by the Jewish-run tobacco industry. Cigarette consumption kills about 5 million people per year worldwide.

Maybe the same people control the bra business?

We consider the industry marketing tactics.

They have racks of their product on display. Matching top and bottom components.

These things have a life of their own. Making them a valuable fashion accessory for the woman with sagging, or dropping breasts.

You get one of these things, and no one will know! Even if you're in the stage in life where you tuck in a silicon prostheses, it all looks uniform!

The biggest bra company in the world is Triumph. They can help the woman with sagging breasts, or even the flat-chested woman. With these special garments, no problem is too big (or small) to be solved.

They give the woman "triumph" over those irritating problems.

Problems that didn't used to exist. That didn't exist until some people sniffed out a huge opportunity for profit.


"In 1913, the first modern brassiere to be awarded a patent was invented by a New York Jewish socialite named Mary Phelps Jacob." (Fancy Living Magazine, October 2005,

"The 'backless brassiere' was patented on 3 November, 1914. Ms Phelps Jacob (who later married Harry Crosby, founder of the Black Sun Press, which published works by D H Lawrence, Joyce, Hemingway and Pound) didn't do well out of her invention. Disappointed by sales, she flogged the patent to the Warner Bros Corset Company for a measly $1,500. It was later valued at $15m." (id.)


The next big development in the industry was cup sizing and "lifting". "The next bra revolution was the Maidenform breakthrough in 1922. In a New York shop called Enid Frocks, a seamstress, Ida Rosenthal, spotted that women with the same chest size didn't necessarily look right in the same bra, because the breasts were different shapes; and so cup size was born. In accentuating and lifting the bosom, rather than trying to flatten it, they bade farewell to the flapper, and paved the way for the future glamourpuss." (id.)


"In the next two decades, a combination of Hollywood starriness, ever-bolder advertising, and the lure of department stores saw a colossal boom in women's products; and the bra was, so to speak, at the forefront. Maidenform was joined by Gossard, Triumph, Spirella and Teilfit, manufacturers who fought tooth and nail to invent refinements: better fabrics, patterns, straps, cups, fibres, padded sections." (id.)

"Bolder" advertising? Soft porn.


"It's a billion-pound industry in the UK, and a $15bn mega-industry in America." (Breast supporting act: a century of the bra, The Independent, September 6, 2007,

That sounds almost as profitable as the cigarette and cosmetics industries. Things that people don't need at all, and are actually quite harmful. But hugely profitable.

Of course, not all women were totally stupid. There were protests, even. "Germaine Greer declared, 'Bras are a ludicrous invention', and her sister feminists insisted that they reduced women to sex objects. The key moment was the 1968 demonstration by 400 women against the Miss America beauty show at Atlantic City Convention Hall. Somebody put a 'Freedom Trash Can' on the ground and encouraged protesters to throw into it girdles, nylons, bras, curlers, high-heeled shoes and other emblems of enslavement." (pic:


It took the Jew Larry Nadler to get the oven really heated: "In the late 1960s, the head of the Canadian Lady Corset company died and his son, Larry Nadler, a Harvard-educated MBA, conducted some intense market research. Women, he discovered, didn't hate their bras as symbols of oppression. Rather, they considered them a means to looking beautiful. Nadler targeted the bra market with something new: it would be seamless, sexy and flattering, and would appeal to teenage girls. His invention was called the "Dici (by Wonderbra)" – of the two names, the former was later ditched, and the latter went on to change the world." (id.) ( (pic:

Flattering? "To compliment excessively and often insincerely". Serious lifting and padding.

To be sexy? Dressing to seduce.


"The arrival over here of Continental brands such as Lejaby and La Perla, and newer brands such as Under Cover and Elle Macpherson Intimates have established bras as a self-indulgently luxury purchase, while the Agent Provocateur and Myla houses have opened up a lucrative market in sexy products for women who like to remind themselves of the wanton seductress that lurks beneath their sensible business suits."(Breast supporting act: a century of the bra, The Independent, September 6, 2007,

Luxury? "something that is an indulgence rather than a necessity". Not needed. Unless a woman really needs to be a wanton seductress.

To complete the ruin of the industry of the GOYIM we shall bring to the assistance of speculation the luxury which we have developed among the GOYIM, that greedy demand for luxury which is swallowing up everything. Protocol 6
Wanton? "Immoral or unchaste; lewd."

Even for the older women: "'With lingerie, people tend to be creatures of habit,' says Turner. 'And this generation is used to that original Fifties style, although the Doreen was brought out in 1967. It does the most amazing uplift job and the three-seamed cup automatically allows more volume in the bust space.'" (Stephanie King, A short history of lingerie: DOREEN THE BRA THAT CONQUERED THE WORLD, The Independent, June 2, 2005)(emphasis added)

Push those sagging breasts up, while pushing those profits up! "[A]ccording to market research company Mintel's retail lingerie report, between 1998 and 2004 UK retail sales of women's bras and pants are estimated to have grown by 34 per cent to pounds 1.14bn." (id.)


Well, there is a little wrinkle here. At the same time as they have been delivering tremendous "lift" and padding, breast cancer rates have been climbing. "Figures today show an 80 per cent increase since 1971 with one in nine women now developing the disease." (Riddle of 'frightening' breast cancer epidemic, October 2, 2006, Daily Mail,

Naturally, this is a riddle (" a difficult problem [syn: conundrum, enigma, brain-teaser] ").

Maybe we can solve it here?

A global epidemic of breast cancer is killing more women each year in all industrialized countries. (Lenore Kohlmeier, Juergen Rehm, and Hans Hoffmeister, "Lifestyle and Trends in Worldwide Breast Cancer Rates," in Devra Lee Davis and David Hoel, editors, TRENDS IN CANCER MORTALITY IN INDUSTRIAL COUNTRIES (New York: New York Academy of Sciences, 1990), pgs. 259-268.)

The "industrialized countries" is just another way of saying the countries where women can buy their wonder bras to get that special lift and padding.
"Breast cancer is now the most frequent form of cancer in the western hemisphere in the female sex. In 1976 more than 88000 women suffered from the disease in the USA alone; in the same year more than 33000 women died of the disease. The age-adjusted incidence rate in the USA and Canada was 60.0 to 80.0 in 1975; in northern, western and central Europe 50.0 to 60.0; in southern and eastern Europe below 40.0; and in Japan below 20.0.

In Europe and in North America breast cancer is the most frequent cause of cancer death in women, and in the age group 35 to 54 years it is the most frequent cause of death overall." (Becker, Frentzel-Beyme, Wagner, Atlas of Cancer Mortality in the Federal Republic of Germany, Spring, 1984, p. 197)

In those countries where women spend their time planting rice and raising children, without benefit of "lift", the epidemic is not raging.
The first comprehensive study on this subject was done by medical researcher Sydney Singer, after his wife Soma Grismaijer discovered a lump on her breast. She got rid of hers in two months by quitting wearing [a] bra, and taking some herbs and supplemental vitamins and minerals.

Singers noticed that the Maoris of New Zealand integrated into white culture have the same rate of breast cancer, while the marginalized aboriginals of Australia have practically no breast cancer. The same was true for "Westernized" Japanese, Fijians and other bra-converted cultures. (How bras are linked to breast cancer,
Haagensen reports an interesting study from Japan. It involved cancer of the breast. Among Japanese in Japan, in the years 1968 – 1971, the rate was 13 per 100000. Among Issei (1st generation Japanese in Hawaii), in the years 1973 – 1977, the rate was 35.9. Among Nisei (2nd generation Japanese) in Hawaii, in the years (1973 – 1977), the rate was 57.2. Among Caucasians in Hawaii (1968 – 1972) the rate was 66.2.Data: From Kolonel, L.N., et al. (1980) and Waterhouse, J., et al. (1976) (Haagensen, Diseases of the Breast 3rd Edition, Saunders, 1986, p. 400) The more bra-wearing, the more breast cancer.

"Since carcinoma of the breast is relatively rare in Japan, its occurrence in Japanese migrants to Hawaii and California has attracted considerable attention. Buell’s (1973) incidence data among first and second generation Japanese immigrants to California were based on very small numbers of cases, but were consistent with observed increases in mortality rates." (Haagensen, Diseases of the Breast 3rd Edition, Saunders, 1986, p. 398)

The Japanese women came to America, got into bra wearing, and got a lot of breast cancer in return.

Rates of Breast Cancer around 1970 were:

California, San Francisco area 79.9
Canada, British Columbia 80
Switzerland, Geneva 70.6
Germany 33.4
Sweden 52.4
Negroes in Rhodesia, Bulawayo 13.8
Negroes in Detroit 51

(Haagensen, Diseases of the Breast 3rd Edition, Saunders, 1986, p. 399)

The statistic about the Negroes is most interesting. Wear bras, and you can be four times as likely to get breast cancer.

Statistics in America have been pretty good since the 1960s. Getting good numbers before 1900 is very difficult. However, the age-adjusted breast-cancer mortality rate per 100,000 Females for 1936 for United States was about 25 per 100,000. The number stayed stable through 1975. The incidence in Connecticut was about 53 in 1936. It increased to about 86.4 by 1975 - 1979. Source of incidence rates: Heston, J.F., et al. Source of mortality rates: Vital Statistics of the United States (Haagensen, Diseases of the Breast 3rd Edition, Saunders, 1986, p. 396)

"The data given in this paper show a decrease of the risk of gastric cancer at younger ages, a quite steady risk of colon cancer, and a steeply increasing risk of lung and breast cancer." (Kayser, Burkhardt, Annals of Oncology 15:686-688, 2004)


So how does this work with bras?
Women who wore their bras 24 hours per day had a 3 out of 4 chance of
developing breast cancer (in their study, n=2056 for the cancer group and n=2674 for the standard group).

Women who wore bras more than 12 hour per day but not to bed had a 1 out of 7 risk.

Women who wore their bras less than 12 hours per day had a 1 out of 152

Women who wore bras rarely or never had a 1 out of 168 chance of getting
breast cancer.

The overall difference between 24 hour wearing and not at all was a 125-fold difference. (Singer and Grismaijer, Dressed to Kill, Avery Press, 1995, cited in Reed, Bras and Breast Cancer, added)
Bras apply pressure to the breasts, especially to the lymphatic system. The
lymphatic system consists of tiny, thin-walled vessels that drain from the
breast tissue, removing toxins, cell debris, cancer cells, viruses, bacteria,
and other products from the breasts. All of our tissues drain through the
lymphatics, which is essentially the circulatory pathway of the immune

However, unlike arteries and veins, these vessels have no internal
pressure. As a result, they are easily compressed by external pressure (a bra, for instance) leading to the congestion of the tissues that would otherwise have been drained.

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 build-up, swelling, tenderness and cyst formation. Toxins must be flushed out via the lymphatics. 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
bra for artificial support, the body loses its ability to support the breast by
itself. This is why many women feel uncomfortable without a bra. What is the solution to breast cancer then? DON'T WEAR A TIGHT BRA! And maybe 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! (Nguyen Phawk Yu, M.D., Bras and Breast Cancer,

The lymph drainage is constricted, while breast temperature is increased:

An M.D. in California published an article in a medical journal linking bras with elevated breast temperature, and he suggested that this might have a connection with breast cancer. He studied several hundred women in a medical practice and also observed that the heavier the bra material, the hotter the breast, and that bra-free women of all sizes had cooler breasts. (The Lancet, November 4, 1978, P. 1001 Dr. John M. Douglass, Department of Internal Medicine, S. Calif. Permanente Med. Center Los Angeles, California)(sourced from BRASSIERES, BREATHING AND BREAST CANCER,


Its not just cancer inducing. A research study has confirmed that bra use causes breast sagging:

Researchers in Japan published a study on bras and sagging, in which they proved that a bra can actually increase breast sagging, rather than the opposite. This effect was most noticeable in larger breasted women. They compared bras to foot binding in their discussion section. ("Breast Form Changes Resulting From A Certain Brassiere" Journal of Hum. Ergol.(Tokyo) 1990 Jun; 19(1):53-62. Ashizawa K, Sugane A, Gunji T Institute of Human Living Sciences, Otsuma Women's
University, Tokyo, Japan) (sourced from BRASSIERES, BREATHING AND BREAST CANCER,

Hmm. The breasts sag on down there. What's a girl to do?

How about buy another bra to get some more "lift"! (Cancer thrown in for free!)


There is at least one country in the world where New York doesn't run everything, and that's China.
"China has banned TV and radio ads for push-up bras and figure-enhancing underwear in the communist government's latest move to purge the nation's airwaves of what it calls social pollution." (China Targets Sexy Ads for Ban, AP, September 30, 2007, added)
You can read the "figure-enhancing underwear" as padded bras.

The bra advertisements have been banned because they "seriously mislead consumers, harm the people's health, pollute the social environment, and corrupt social mores" (id.)

The Chinese government knows the score.


We consider the advertising at left. What color could be more feminine than pink? And those cuddly stuffed animals on top of it.

And the message? Support the fight against breast cancer!

And how? Oh, you can come in and buy a bra. Which is, as we've seen, so often the cause of breast cancer.

What cynicism! What greed!

As the Chinese put it, these Jewish products "harm the people's health". The marketing is "misleading". And definitely web stats

But the business is very profitable.
