Bra Beats Cancer
Seems almost too good to be true. What if you didn't have to go through a painful exam to find cancerous spots in your breast? Now a Reno, Nevada company is developing "a new screening tool that's non- invasive, non-compression, and extremely accurate," according to a Tampa Bay TV station.
It's a bra you wear for 12 hours, starting from the age of 18 up, that has 16 sensors that can detect temperature changes, which can signal breast cancer, the station reported. When the bra hits the market by midyear next year, it could become part of regular health screening instead of, or complementing, mammograms.
What's that sound? One million women applauding.
