How to Find Your Correct Bra Size

One of the problems that women with smaller breasts have is finding the proper bra size. For example, a woman with a 32AA bra size may end up wearing something that is uncomfortable, because may think there are no options available. The fact of the matter is, however, there are options that are open to you, and when you find the right bra, you will be comfortable in a way that you may not have thought possible. Here are some things to keep in mind that will help you to find the right bra for your breast size.

The first thing that you should consider is the band size. This is something that can easily be measured at home, although a professional sizing is also recommended. The band size should be snug but it should not be overly snug if you have a smaller bra size.

The strap of the bra is also a consideration for women who wear a 32AA bra size. Most women tend to blame a poor fit in the straps on their own body, saying that their shoulders are large enough to support them. Choosing the right size bra includes choosing the right size strap, or at the very least, having them adjusted properly (Source: LuLa Lu 32aa bra size). They should not cut in your shoulders, but at the same time they should not fall off of your shoulders.

Finally, consider the shape of the cup. Most women with smaller breasts tend to prefer a cup that is well shaped. It can be difficult to find such a bra if you are not using a company that caters to smaller bra sizes. When you choose a bra that is designed for a your own shape, you will certainly be happy with it.

Human Health

Constant Climatic changes pose a great challenge to Human Health. Even though toxins and disease pathogens are a threat to health, Climate change may cause health effects that are potentially harmful. These threats include impacts from heat waves, air pollution that causes ailments, severe storms and many infectious diseases.

Assessing the glaring effects of climate change to human health should realistically include setting up a capacity to manage the unpredictable climate conditions. Due to the health risks occasioned by the climatic change, there is needed to set up and run a vibrant public health infrastructure.

Since we live in a global village, increased of risks associated with diseases emanating from other countries should be considered. Climate change has made poor countries suffer greatly. Due to global trade that requires a lot of travelling between different countries, diseases are bound to flare-up in any part of the world. Extreme climatic conditions such as severe draught and storms also undermine the public health infrastructure that is in place. Continue Reading

Environmental Exposures and Cancer Risk

Between September 2008 and January 2009, an advisory panel set up within the National Cancer Institute look at the potential effects of environmental exposures on cancer in our community. The Panel consists of three members appointed by the US President, who by virtue of their training, experience, and background are exceptionally qualified to appraise the National Cancer Program. At least two members of the Panel are distinguished scientists or physicians.

This is the 240 pages report submitted in April 2010 by President’s Cancer Panel warning that “the true burden of environmentally induced cancers has been grossly underestimated” and urging steps be taken to reduce people’s broad exposure to carcinogens. It is worth the read for anyone who is interested in preventing cancer and in preserving the continuation of the human race. This report recommends several practices to reduce environmental exposure in our everyday lives. We highlight some of the points and issues raised in this report as we have already previously emphasised these in our book “Is Your Food Killing You?”

Research on environmental causes of cancer has been limited by low priority and inadequate funding and there is a lack of emphasis on environmental research as a route to primary cancer prevention, particularly compared with research emphases on genetic and molecular mechanisms in cancer. This report states that “Efforts to identify, quantify, and control environmental exposures that raise cancer risk, including both single agents and combinations of exposures, have been complicated by the use of different measures, exposure limits, assessment processes, and classification structures across agencies in the U.S. and among nations. In addition, efforts have been compromised by a lack of effective measurement methods and tools.” Current toxicity testing relies heavily on animal studies that utilize doses substantially higher than those likely to be encountered by humans and fails to take into account harmful effects that may occur only at very low doses especially to developing foetuses and during childhood. This category is more vulnerable than adults to increased cancer risk and other adverse effects from virtually all harmful environmental exposures. In addition, a potential agent is tested singly rather than in combination with other potential environmental agents making the results weak, flawed, or uncorroborated. Environmental carcinogens are everywhere; in our soil, air, water, and numerous consumer products. Continue Reading
