Recent research by Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer illustrated that girls who wear bras

more than twelve hours daily, but not to bed, are 21 times more prone to get breast cancer than people who wear
bras less than twelve hours every day. People who wear bras even to babe la nudism are 125 times more likely to get breast cancer
than people who don’t wear bras at all. Testicular cancer, similarly, has been associated with tight briefs. The theory is that
tight clothing impedes the lymph system, which removes cancer-causing toxins from the body.76
55. Clothing can harbor disease-causing bacteria and yeast (particularly underclothing and athletic clothing).
56. Medical research has linked garments to a heightened susceptibility to bites and stings by creatures such

as ticks and sea lice, which hide in or get trapped in clothing.77
57. Clothing fashions throughout history, particularly for girls, have often been damaging to physical and
Mental well-being.78
For example, the wearing of corsets led to numerous physical ailments in girls in the late 19th century.
Men and women both endured through many ages of history under hot, burdensome layers of clothing in the name
of vogue. Footwear has been notably notorious for resisting motive and comfort in the name of style.
58. The notion that clothing is essential for support of the genitals or breasts is generally unwarranted.
For example, research demonstrates that the choice of wearing a bra or not has no impact on the inclination of a
Girl’s breasts to “droop” as she ages. Deborah Franklin writes: “Still, the myth that daily, lifelong bra wearing is
crucial to maintaining curvatures persists, along with other misguided opinions about that bringing bit of binding left over
from the days when a wasp waist defined the contours of a female ‘s power.” Christine Haycock, of the New Jersey
Medical School, says that while working out with no bra might be uncomfortable for big-breasted women, “it’s not
doing any permanent damage to chest muscles or breast tissue.” Actually, given the inclination of sports bras to squash
breasts against the rib cage, her research concluded that “those who wore an A cup were often most
comfortable with no bra in the slightest.” 79 Whole nudity presents no difficulties for conditioned male sportsmen, either; and
Consequently the athletes of ancient Athens had no trouble performing totally in the nude.80
59. Clothing hides the natural beauty of the body, as created by God.
In the words of Michelangelo: “What spirit is indeed empty and blind, that it cannot grasp the very fact that the
human foot is more noble than the shoe and human skin more beautiful than the garment with which it’s clothed?”
60. Clothing makes people look older, and emphasizes rather than conceals unflattering body characteristics.
Paul Fussell writes: “Bare, older people appear younger, particularly when really tan, and younger people look
even younger. . . . In addition fat people look much less offensive naked than clothed. Clothing, you understand, have the
effect of sausage casings, gravely defining and marketing the shape of what it is that they include, pulling it all into an
Abnormal form which could not fool anyone. . . . The beginning Naturist doesn’t take long to master the paradox that it
is stockings which make varicose veins noticeable, belts that call attention to forty eight-inch waists, brassieres that
Stress sagging breasts.” 81
61. Clothing harbors and encourages the growth of odor-causing bacteria.
Naturism is socially constructive.
62. Naturism is a socially constructive philosophy.
As defined by the International Naturist Federation, “Naturism is a lifestyle in harmony with nature
Defined by the custom of communal nudity, with the intention of supporting self respect, respect for others
and for the surroundings.” 82
63. Naturism, by philosophy, is tolerant of others and their differences. It anticipates just the same in return. rejects obstreperous, provocative nudity–but because it’s antisocial effrontery and disorderly
Actions, not because it’s nudity.
64. Nudity boosts social equality, feelings of unity with others, and more relaxed social interaction in
general. As mentioned before, garments locks us into a collective unreality that prescribes complex responses to
social status, roles and anticipated behaviours.83 As the artificial barrier of clothing is done away with, social class and
status disappear. Individuals start to connect to each other as they’re, and not as they appear to be.
This is a phenomenon that is intimately familiar to the Finnish people. L.M. Edelsward writes: “Folks can
relax in the sauna in a way that’s difficult to do in other contexts and with others than one’s family, for here the
tensions related to keeping one’s societal disguise disappear. . . . Without their social masks, sauna bathers are
Capable to satisfy others not in relation to their societal personas, but in of their internal characters. . . . Sweating
together in the sauna, removed from the impinging demands of ordinary life, Finns can be the people they’really’
