I was 7yrs old when I lost my mom to breast cancer. I remember how hard she fought to stay alive for us.
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women after lung cancer. The chance that a woman will die from breast cancer is about 1 in 37 (about 2.7%). Currently, the average risk of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer sometime in her life is about 12%. This means there is a 1 in 8 chance she will develop breast cancer. The American Cancer Society's estimated that over 252,710 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer each year and more than 40,500 will die.
In Europe, more than 131,000 women were estimated to have died from breast cancer in 2012. In the UK, breast cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death. The UK mortality rate is 14th highest in Europe with 55,222 new cases and 11, 433 death every year, that’s 31 deaths every day. Worldwide it is estimated that around 522,000 women died from breast cancer in 2012.
Research has show that there is a 125-fold increase in the likelihood of developing breast cancer between women who don’t wear a bra and women who wear one all the time.
Statistics from a study of over 4,000 women found that:
1. Women who wear bras 24/7 have a 3 out of 4 chance of getting breast cancer,
2. Women who wear bras for more than 12 hours a day have a 1 in 7 chance,
3. Women who wear bras less than 12 hours a day have a 1 in 52 chance, and
4. Women who rarely or never wear bras have a 1 in 168 chance of getting breast cancer.
