Hello! I was going to do part 2 of parental controls using my notebook with Windows XP. Well found the power cord finally (didn't realize how long it has been since I used it). So updating the programs and defragmenting, so I am sorry but will be writing part 2 tomorrow. Also just a note about password; if you even think they might know your password, change it. You can also check your own history to see if they were on there. Plus I did notice that some of the parental control programs offer cell phone protection too, so if your child has a cell phone(or your planning to get them one) check to see if the carrier offers parental controls and if they work with others you can add for more protection.
I did find something good to write about for tonight though. :)
A little while ago, October 22, 2012, I wrote a post called “Bra or not to Bra?Yes I said Bra!” A friend of mine found an article about women who were overweight had higher chances of breast cancer. And of course these women would where bras more.
So I decided to do a little surfing and found some articles on the bra issue.
Surprise for me found one link led me to an article that said:
Antiperspirants? Wow that was new to me! LOL! Now when I first read the article and decided to put it on my blog it was because I found it interesting, and still do. Look what I am learning!
Now from what I have read all more or less agree that bras aren't the cause of cancer. Well I think we knew that. The idea that bras my cut off lymphatic drainage(which I can gather this body fluid actually travels up and out of the armpits, guess that is where the deodorant comes in), seems to be intriguing but from what I could gather that problem can be solved with a proper fitting bra.
I did find one site that didn't deny or confirm anything and I will put the link here because it is also interesting and touches on a few different myths. It is: Factors That Do Not Increase Risk.
I like this one from The New York Times, Science, Published: February 15, 2010: In his answer he said: “...and colleagues compared National Cancer Institute data on breast cancer risk for women treated for melanoma who had several underarm lymph nodes removed and those who did not. The surgery, which is known to block lymph drainage from breast tissue, did not detectably increase breast cancer rates, the study found, meaning that it is extremely unlikely that wearing a bra, which affects lymph flow minimally if at all, would do so.”
This one makes a good point too. I refers to the 1960’s when many women where going braless. It is from ABC News on September 21, 2007:
Question: Do underwire bras increase my risk for breast cancer?
Answer: I do not believe that underwire bras increase the risk of breast cancer. There are many studies that are reported that try to associate things that we have in our lifestyle -- our habits -- that might influence cancer risk. But one has to remember that we all have very complex lifestyles in western society and to sort out one item or another, such as an underwire bra, would be a terribly difficult task to associate, and especially since most people would expect that it would have to be use over a long period of time, not a short period of time, that would be correlated. So, consequently, you might expect that breast cancer risk would have gone down in the 1960s when braless-ness was in fact in vogue, and in fact that's not what we saw in the statistics. So it's hard to associate many of these lifestyle factors with cancer risk per se, although lifestyle factors are one of the things that we can modify personally.
Here are 2 more articles Fact or Fiction? Underwire Bras Cause Cancer from April 19, 2007 and The truth about brasfrom Monday, October 30, 2006.
By far the best article I read was Can Wearing Your Bra Cause Cancer? From May 19, 2009, By Dr. Mercola.
I will just show you a few paragraphs, you really should read it. It seems to cover all the views with a few extras to boot. Including the underwire itself, I could not find anything about the wire in any of the other articles, even though they all made a reference to it. e.g.
Over 85 percent of the lymph fluid flowing from the breast drains to the armpit lymph nodes. Most of the rest drains to the nodes along the breast bone. Bras and other external tight clothing can impede flow.
The nature of the bra, the tightness, and the length of time worn, will all influence the degree of blockage of lymphatic drainage. Thus, wearing a bra might contribute to the development of breast cancer as a result of cutting off lymphatic drainage, so that toxic chemicals are trapped in the breast."
And this: As described by John D. Andre, D.C., N.D., below your breasts are two important neuro-lymphatic reflex points. The one below your right breast corresponds to your liver and gallbladder. The one below your left breast goes to your stomach.
If a woman keeps the metal underwires on top of those reflex points, over time that WILL mess up the functioning of the associated circuits: Liver, gallbladder, and stomach.
So I learned something new today. I like learning. Hope you do too. Even if you don’t read any of the other articles please read the last one, By Dr. Mercola. I would have put it on here but that would have made this post twice as long.
I got these from Hippie Peace Freaks
