Coming Soon: Breast-Cancer Detecting Bra

Lifeline Biotechnologies, an American based company, has invented a “smart bra” called First Warning Systems which could help women discover if they have breast cancer.
The bra, which is based on a novel breast health screening device and method could become available in Europe in 2013 and then in the United States of America in 2014, for US$ 1,000 (N160,000) for a pair.
Preliminary studies with First Warning Systems were conducted in more than 650 women, resulting in an average detection of at least 90 percent. Compared with the standard mammogram, the tests averaged 70 percent accuracy.
In a release, by Biotechnologies, the medical technology company licensing the bra observed that the First Warning System is capable not only identifying breast tissue abnormalities at their earliest stages, but can also identify the general location of such abnormalities in three dimensions to each of the four quadrants of each breast.
The release continues: “It is, therefore, not intended as an additional step in the breast cancer screening process, but as an accurate identifier of early breast abnormalities which generate heat via the presence of new blood vessels that nourish the area in question.”
P.S: Did y’all know that men can develop breast cancer too? Its rare but it does happen. Sad thing is a lot of people don’t know that.
