Wearing A Bra 24/7

I was wondering if it is safe to wear a bra 24/7? I mean, not when you're in the shower but when you are sleeping. I need to wear one, but my cousin told me it wasn't safe to wear one at night. Could you give me the 411 on it?

There has been talk that the more you wear your bra (over 12 hours a day,) the more at risk you are for getting breast cancer. The Canadian Cancer Society however, says there is no reliable, scientific evidence that shows a link between wearing a bra and developing breast cancer at this time. There's no real reason you have to wear a bra while you are sleeping though, unless your breasts are quite large and you're wearing a bra to make your sleep more comfortable. The whole purpose of wearing a bra is to keep your breasts from bouncing around and to reduce the rate at which they begin to sag. None of these factors really apply while you are asleep. So, unless you are super-uncomfy without one, give your body some breathing room and ditch the bra when you go to bed.

Dieting and Eating Disorders

There's a girl at school I'm literally mad about! I'm planning to make my diet more effective by starving myself a little, 'cuz I'm overweight Samoht

It doesn't matter how much you like this girl, starving yourself will not make her like you more. Starving yourself does not make for a more effective diet, either. Did you know that starving your body of the proper nutrients can actually slow down your metabolism? That means that once you've lost the desired amount of weight from starving yourself, and go back to eating normally, your body won't be able to process food at the same rate it used to. Chances are, you'll actually gain weight from your starving tactics. Plus, you run the risk of developing a serious eating disorder, like anorexia or bulima. If you're concerned with your weight/body image, you need to take a healthier approach to dieting. Start by cutting out unnecessary fats and sugars from your diet. Start eating more fruits and veggies and drinking more water. You should also exercise regularly to help maintain a healthy body weight. Putting your health at risk (or changing yourself in any way,) just to impress someone is the wrong move. Anyone who doesn't like you for who you really are, isn't worth your time or energy.

If friends don't treat you  right  They are not your friends. Say that you do not like what has been happening and let them down easy by saying " Hey, look they way that you guys has been treating me has not been great and I do not mean to hurt your feelings but I don't really want to be friends If this will continue. If you stop doing ( whatever they are doing ) Then we can be friends, I am sorry" They probably wont think you are serious so they might keep doing it so then you say "We cant be friends because you kept doing this so Bye".
