ISCD

Institute for the Study of Culturogenic Disease


ISCD's mission is to promote the study of culturogenic disease by conducting original research and through media outreach to the public and medical institutions.


We are pioneers of Applied Medical Anthropology.  Our founders and directors are Professors Sydney Ross Singer and Soma Grismaijer, Medical Anthropologists and co-authors of Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras.


Our staff use the fields of anthropology, biochemistry, and medicine to understand the cultural causes of disease.  In addition to the link between breast cancer and bras, we have made some remarkable discoveries, including the effect of sleep position on brain health and numerous diseases, the impact of the voice on the thyroid, and many illnesses caused by cultural taboos.  For some of Prof. Singer's work, go here.  


ISCD is a program of the Good Shepherd Foundation, a 501(C)3 nonprofit dedicated to human, animal, and environmental health.
