Are these for real? I read from an online article about this bra that claims to detect breast cancer when worn for 12 hours. If it’s even half true, it’s a great invention because if you don’t know yet, getting a breast Mammogram is one heck of a painful experience. And the fact that you’re being tested for a possible cancer illness, certainly does not help at all.

This is how the bra looks like:

First Warnings Systems Bra

To quote the article,

According to the company’s website, the data generated by the sports bra can predict the presence of breast cancer with 90% specificity and sensitivity. Women wear it for 12 hours to accumulate a stable enough reading of temperature, and the measurements are fed into the company’s algorithm that then spits out a result: normal, benign, suspected for breast tissue abnormalities, or probable for breast tissue abnormalities.

Sounds like a good idea, right? Except that the concept of using temperature to detect disease may not be ready for prime time just yet. “Hypothetically, it’s conceivable that malignant processes would have a temperature gradient compared to non-malignant tissues,” says Dr. Therese Bevers, medical director of the cancer prevention center at the Univ. of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. “But that gradient may not be very large.”

I wish the company responsible for this study will come up with solid data and find out if the bra is safe to use and for testing. A few days ago, I posted about the different colors of cancer which you might want to check out too.

So what do you think about this bra? Are you willing to wear it?
