One of the most dangerous objects to a woman’s health is sitting right in their closet, and they don’t even know it. Sydney Ross Singer, medical anthropologist and author of Dressed to Kill, joins Dr. Taz to warn women of the hazards of bras. When his wife found a lump in her breast, they set out to find out why. He shares about how your bra may be affecting you, and the practical steps you can take to establish optimal breast health in a culture that treats it as a taboo.
