Ladies, Do You Wash Your New Bra Before Wearing? Then See This! by dripstoil: 7:53pm On May 19, 2011
See what lava did to a woman's breast because she failed to wash before wearing.

After reading it, Please make it a habit to wash your just purchased undergarments before wearing them.
This is sensitive. Our undergarments are made in different parts of the world, sit in boxes and go through
many hands and exchanges before we purchase them. Follow the link below to see things yourself.

[size=18pt]you guys this is a hoax!!!![/size]


I LITERALLY ALMOST THREW UP BECAUSE OF THIS THREAD!!!

apparently its a photoshopped bosom that was fused with a lotus seedpods.

I AM DISAPPOINTED!!!   undecided undecided

SEE HERE:

http://www.hoax-slayer.com/bre.ast-larvae.html 
(erase that >>>> . in between the 'bre.ast' and post in your URL bar, i really hate this censor crap!  tongue)

If no luck then read:


Although larvae infestation of the bosoms is possible (as discussed below), genuine images of such infestations bear no resemblance to the rash supposedly depicted in the message. In fact, I could find no genuine photograph of any sort of skin condition resembling the one included in this "warning" email. If true, such an unusual bosom rash would surely have been published in medical journals and websites along with more information about the condition.

Moreover, I could find no credible information that substantiates references in the message to an anthropologist named "Susan McKinley". It seems probable that the story of this hapless scientist's encounter with such nasty bosom beasties is a work of fiction concocted solely to go with the unusual picture. Snopes.com notes that the picture was published online in other contexts as far back as 2003 and was only later associated with apparent larvae infestation and "Susan McKinley".

Some versions of the warning include a photograph attributed to Michael Bohne that supposedly shows some of the larvae extracted from the infested bosom. However, an Internet search on the photographer's name reveals that the same photograph is displayed on the Forestry Images website and depicts the larvae of the Asian longhorned beetle. Thus, the picture has no connection with the bosom rash image or the illusive "Miss McKinley" and has apparently been added only to enhance the perceived shock value of the warning message.

Other versions of the message also include a graphic video that ostensibly depicts larvae being removed from "Miss McKinley's" bosom. Although the video is genuine, it has no relation whatsoever to the bosom rash image or the spurious claims made in the message. The video was originally published online as part of a 2004 BMC Surgery journal article, that describes a case of Furuncular myiasis of the bosom caused by the larvae of the Tumbu fly (Cordylobia anthropophaga). The patient in the video is in fact a 70-year-old women living in Nigerian who had fourteen larvae removed from her right bosom. The video footage shows no evidence of the lotus-seed like rash and it clearly does not depict the same woman featured in the hoax message picture. (The video is available for viewing via a link within the BMC Surgery article).

Cordylobia anthropophaga eggs can be deposited in soil or wet and dirty clothing that is hung out to dry, and the article advises that good personal hygiene and ironing clothes before wearing can be effective preventative measures against infestation. While eggs can be present in soiled clothing, their presence in brand new, store bought clothing seems fairly unlikely. The journal article notes:
C. anthropophaga is a large, robust brownish yellow fly found widely throughout tropical Africa. It deposits 100–300 eggs on soil polluted with animal excrement or on clothing saturated with perspiration and soiled diapers. After hatching, the larvae can stay alive for seven to twenty days, while attached to contaminated articles and clothing or the soil. On contact with the skin of man or other vertebrates they easily penetrate the skin
.

Given the mode of transmission described, older clothing that has been directly exposed to the fly and poorly laundered is probably a lot more likely to harbour the larvae than new and unworn store-bought underwear.

That said, the message's advice to wash new garments before wearing them is not without merit. New clothing often has a chemical finish designed to make the clothes look and smell better in the shop or prevent mildew or pest contamination during shipping. These chemicals may cause skin irritation in some people. Possible factory or storeroom contamination by insects or rodents and unhygienic handling by other shoppers are further reasons to wash new garments before wearing, especially with regard to babies or those with allergies or sensitive skin.

Overall, however, this "warning" message contains false and unsubstantiated information and forwarding it to others will serve no good purpose.

though this is a very old wives tale that this happened, one that has been shown time and time again to be false, there are very real dangers to not washing any clothing item before it is washed.  the dyes and chemicals used in the manufacturing process of your clothing can be toxic to you or cause alergic reactions (some recations  may lead to anaphalaxic shock - death) the trucks/trains/[lanes used to transport these materials and finishe products are reused, there is a possiblity that the floor of the cargo trailer was covered in manure/urine.  skin diseases such as scabies can be passed to you if you wear a garment someone infected with such has tried on or handled.   this goes without saying that the same precausions you use of washing food store/dinnerware upon purchasing it should be extended to anything that comes incontact with your skin.
