In tough economic times, it seems like there is a get rich scheme or a miracle cure around every corner. The TV and internet sites are filled with cheap ways to better everyone’s life. For a while, the Brassage has been promoting that it is a way to promote healthier breasts with woman.

The idea was that massage pads were used to help promote internal blood flow. Christina Erteszek, daughter of the famed Olga Erteszek, the lingerie maker, appeared on television’s "Good Morning America" to talk about the brassage. But when the questioning turned tough, she got up and abruptly walked off. She returned to finish the interview, emphasizing that she is making no medical claims.

According to the company’s website, the bra’s massaging bumps sewn into the side "stimulate lymphatic flow," which promotes healthy breast tissue. Erteszek is quoted in other media outlets as saying the "wellness bra" helps to prevent breast disease.

The American Cancer Society addresses the topic of bras and breast cancer, posting information in response to a previous email rumor that claims wearing a bra for the entire day compresses the breast’s lymphatic system, resulting in toxin accumulation that cause breast cancer. A representative went further to say " there is no scientific evidence that this type of bra or any other has any impact of women’s risk of developing breast cancer."

Apparently, the company may be out of business, with a phone number that is no longer in use. It’s important to look at all of the big promise claims with a very cautious eye.
