Dr. Weeks’ Comment: Most of you who read WeeksMD on a regular basis know not to do this already having read THIS in 2013 and THIS and most recently THIS. But it bear repeating since the bra is a convenient place to keep a cell phone.
So please remind the women and teenage girls in your life NOT to keep their cell phone in their bra because that will kill them.

It includes a video about a young woman (Donna Jayne, younger than age 40) with no genetic risk factors contracting a very rare form of breast cancer with tumors in the areas on her breast next to where she stored her cell phone.
Also a video from Dr. Lisa Bailey, breast surgeon and former president of the American Cancer Society in California
Also links to studies for breast cancer and cell phones and a case study of young women under 40 who carried their cell phones in their bras and developed breast cancer
