Bras and breast cancer
Over the past few years, there have been reports, e-mails and websites that say wearing a bra might cause breast cancer.
At this time, there is no reliable, scientific evidence that shows a link between wearing a bra and developing breast cancer. If any well-designed, peer-reviewed studies are done on this subject, the Canadian Cancer Society will review the research and the results.
The Canadian Cancer Society understands that Canadians are concerned about breast cancer, but recommends being careful when evaluating any medical information or claims on the Internet. The Internet can be a great source of information, but you should always discuss personal health concerns with a qualified health professional.
Now I know that I will help someone with cancer even after I’m gone. It’s a footprint I want to leave behind me.
Establishing a national caregivers strategy
The Canadian Cancer Society is actively lobbying the federal government to establish a national caregivers strategy to ensure there is more financial support for this important group of people.
