The earlier you catch it, the better your chances of treating it and living a longer life. I’m talking about the Big C. Every year, over 50,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer–and a number of them will end up succumbing to the disease, depending on what stage their cancer is and on their overall health.
This is why I think the Breast Tissue Screening Bra is such a wonderful project! It’s a smart bra that’s equipped with sensors that can measure small temperature changes as they occur. The temperature spikes could mean nothing, but they could be caused by the growth of blood vessels which signal the growth of tumors. The sensors will take note of the chronology of cell cycles and use a pattern recognition system combined with statistical analysis software to pinpoint tumors even before mammograms can detect them.
