MOSCOW, 7 Mar – RIA Novosti. Wearing a bra does not cause breast cancer, said doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov on the Russia 1 TV channel.
“It doesn't affect whatever he squeezes, it might be uncomfortable, but it doesn't affect breast cancer in any way,” he said.
According to the doctor, avoiding alcohol and smoking, proper nutrition, including vegetables, fruits and foods rich in estrogen, as well as physical activity, will help protect against the disease.
Myasnikov advised women to have regular mammograms starting at the age of 40.
