Cancer-Detecting Bra Could One Day Surpass Mammograms In Accuracy 110

fangmcgee writes "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."

    It was a joke. LOL! Men can estimate a cup size with accuracy. Yeah, once in a while, a girl will surprise you when her lovely sweater puppies pop out, but as a rule it's pretty easy to judge.

    And no, "maybe she'd eventually give you the chance to examine her bra more closely" is a fallacy. A woman knows within five minutes of meeting you if she'll have sex with you or not. Your personality determines her reaction to your checking out her assets: "OMG he really likes me" or "eww pervy". If you're a dominant male, the former...if not, the latter.

    A little more info

    * Breast cancer is the second leading cancer killer of women, behind lung cancer
    * Prostate cancer is the second leading cancer killer of men, behind lung cancer
    * Death rate for prostate cancer is slightly higher in men than breast cancer is for women
    * Median death age for breast cancer is 68, median death age for prostate is 80
    * Prostate cancer tends to be detected later and develops slower.
    * Prostate cancer is likely underreported because men don't go to Doctor as often.
