Why You Shouldn’t Carry A Cell Phone Inside Your Bra

Why you should never carry a cell phone inside your braThe bra was made for carrying breasts, but many ladies have found many other uses for the bra, including using it as a purse.

This has resulted in a growing trend of girls and women carrying their cell phones inside their bras.

Seen by many as being an extremely convenient way to carry the phone hands free, with no need of carrying or having to rummage through a hand bag when out and about.

Certainly super convenient when out at the gym, when jogging, dancing or clubbing.  Many women have also found the convenience of never missing a call when in a noisy environment, by putting their cell phone on vibrate and placing it inside their bra.

Many Doctors are Now Strongly Warning Against this.

Carrying your cell phone inside your bra is highly likely to cause you harm.  There has been a growing amount of women getting unusual types of breast cancer.

Reports are showing these women are not in the (well known) high risk groups to get breast cancer.

The well known high risk groups are: Those with a family history of breast or ovarian cancers  –  Genetics, inherited changes (mutations) in certain genes like BRCA1 and BRCA2 – Have denser breast tissue, another words more gland tissue than fatty tissue – A history of radiation treatment in the chest area – Those over the age of 60.


So how does carrying my cell phone inside my bra put me at a higher risk of getting breast cancer?

Cell phones emit low energy electromagnetic radiation signals (also known as radio or microwave frequencies), to stay in touch with nearby cell towers – eg the wireless network.

There is mounting evidence that these types of frequencies cause many illnesses, including various cancers, particularly for those in regular close contact/proximity of devices that emit these frequencies.

The closer you are to the device the greater your risk gets.  Therefore, carrying your cell phone inside your bra is making your chances of getting breast cancer much higher.

Cell Phone Radiation & Breast Cancer

(Doctors speak out about unusual cancer tumors found on a woman whom regularly… Carried her cell phone inside her bra)

As time goes on breast surgeons are seeing a growing number of odd tumors appearing on womens breasts.  In many of these cases there are multiple tumors appearing, that follow the distinctive outline of where their cell phone was regularly stored inside their bra.

A small case study report done in 2013 Breast Cancer from Mobile Phones Case Study also concluded the unusual pattern of multifocal cancers and extensive DCIS occurring in areas of direct cell phone contact on the breast as being noteworthy.

Each patient had multifocal cancer, but the tumors were all clustered within the area of breast tissue directly underlying the cellular device, and nowhere else.

It is also important to note that in 2011 The World Health Organization (WHO) released a report stating that cell phones may cause cancer, classifying radio frequency electromagnetic fields as “possibly carcinogenic to humans” (Class 2B).

Excerpt from this release: Dr Jonathan Samet (University of Southern California, USA), overall Chairman of the Working Group, indicated that “the evidence, while still accumulating, is strong enough to support a conclusion and the 2B classification.

The conclusion means that there could be some risk, and therefore we need to keep a close watch for a link between cell phones and cancer risk.”

“Given the potential consequences for public health of this classification and findings,” said IARC Director Christopher Wild, “it is important that additional research be conducted into the long‐term, heavy use of mobile phones.

Pending the availability of such information, it is important to take pragmatic measures to reduce exposure such as hands‐free devices or texting.”

Interestingly some cell phone manufacturers now state in the fine print of the instruction manual (that most people don’t read), to hold your cell phone at least 10mm or more away from your body.


Although many professionals will say there is no solid proof yet, or not enough studies have been done etc to prove that the cell phone is causing the breast cancers, taking precautionary steps by NOT using you bra as a cell phone case is crucial to avoid becoming a possible statistic later on.

It is also crucial that any wireless device you use is as far away from your body as possible.

A few years ago many professionals said cell phones are safe to talk on, and now we see many well documented cases of brain tumor cancers appearing in those that have talked on cell phones regularly for various time spans.

In-fact many lawsuits against communications manufactures are starting to mount up for those that have got brain tumors from cell phone usage.  The brain tumors these people have, are also in the areas of the brain that the cell phone was held close to.

So next time you are tempted to carry your cell phone inside your bra – DON’T – It’s just not worth the risk.
