SYDNEY ROSS SINGER, M.S. Medical Anthropologist. After receiving his graduate training in Biochemistry and being awarded his M.S. Degree in Anthropology in 1981 from Duke University, Sydney Ross Singer decided to pursue a career in the new and emerging field of Medical Anthropology. To Better understand how culture and environment affect human health, he went on to complete three years of Medical School at the University of Texas to become one of the first Medically trained anthropologists in the United States.

In 1994, he founded and currently serves as Co-Director of the Institute for the Study of Culturogenic Disease with his wife and co-researcher Soma Grismaijer. This pioneering organization is dedicated to discovering the culture-based causes of disease. Using an integrated approach from the fields of Biochemistry, Anthropology, Medical Humanities and Medicine, Sydney Singer has made medical discoveries into the cultural causes of various common diseases.

Singer and Grismaijer rocked the world with their ground breaking 1991-93 U.S. Bra and Breast Cancer Study, published in “Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras” (1st edition in 1995; 2nd edition in 2018) which has now been confirmed by numerous international studies linking wearing tight bras with breast cancer, pointing to the role bras play in impairing the lymphatic system. In 1998, Singer and Grismaijer did a follow-up breast cancer study in Fiji, confirming their findings.

He will speak on Bras & The Breast Cancer Cover-Up.
