Researchers are developing a high-tech bra that monitors breasts for early signs of cancer
Jokingly, we expect our bras to work miracles, but soon they may actually do just that – save you from breast cancer. Reno-based First Warning Systems is working on a new bra that could detect if you are developing breast cancer. Integrated sensors and a data controller regularly monitor your breasts and can watch for irregularities which may signal the growth of tumors. Tests so far are showing that the bra is far superior and may be able to detect cancerous growth up to 6 years sooner than self-exams or mammograms.
