Reasons Not to Get Breast Implants
FDA reported that breast implants put women's lives in danger. The big news was that a small number of women can get a very rare type of cancer (ALCL: anaplastic large cell lymphoma). It confirmed that death is a possible side effect of breast implants.
Why are women so unhappy with their breasts?
If you wish to get rid of stretch marks, it is essential to understand how they are formed. The skin is made of three layers - outer, middle and inner. The outer layer, also known as the epidermis, acts as a barrier thanks to the presence of flat cells, while the innermost layer of skin, also known as hypodermis, consists of fat and tissue. The middle layer, or the dermis, is the supportive layer that provides flexibility and firmness to the skin. It is the middle layer in which stretch marks develop due to rapid growth.
Stop, take a breath and understand the real risks and the possible complications. Get educated. Get smart. Look before you leap.
Here is what can happen to you with breast implants excerpted from What You Need to Know About Breast Implants published by the National Research Center for Women and Families. This publication also has a long list of research and references to support the following statements.
Complications Of Breast Surgery And Silicone And Saline Breast Implants include:
- infection (bacteria and mold which can be released from the implant into the body)
- surgical risks
- anesthesia risks
- chronic breast pain,
- breast or nipple numbness
- capsular contracture
- scar tissue
- hardened and misshapen breasts
- breakage and leakage
- necrosis (skin death)
- need for additional surgery to deal with problems
- dissatisfaction with how the breast looks
- arthritis and joint pain
- metal poisoning due to platinum exposure (in silicone implants)
- silicone migration into lymph nodes and other organs
- Hashimoto's thyroiditis, mixed connective-tissue disease, pulmonary fibrosis, eosinophilic fasciitis, and polymyalgia.
Silicone Immune Toxicity Syndrome
There are several forms of the chemical in breast implants that can cause a problem in the human organism. Silicon (Si) is the basic element and probably causes immune system changes.
Silica or SiO2 is the form it is mined from the earth. Silicone gel is a synthetic material containing 38% silicon. The silica is 45% silicon. There is slow leakage ("bleeding") of the silicone gel from the implants through the semi-permeable membrane envelope and also into and through the capsule that surrounds the implants. This is picked up by the microphages (scavenger cells) of our immune system and is broken down inside these cells which travel all over the body. The gel breaks down inside these cells, which travel all over the body. The gel breaks down into Silica and Silicon which causes an immune system dysregulation. Thus, there are antibodies produced against the silicon and also against the silicon and protein complex (organ systems) so that you get autoimmune illness
Below is the List of Chemicals which experts have analyzed to be in the explanted breast implant shell envelopes and gels.
Methyl Ethyl Ketone, Cyclohexane, Isopropyl Alcohol, Denatured Alcohol, Acetone, Urethane, Lacquer thinner ,Ethyl Acetate, Epoxy Resin, Epoxy hardener, Amine, Printing ink, Toluene, Freon ,Silicone, Lofol (formaldehyde), Flux Metal, cleaning acid, Eastman 910 glue (Cyanoacyryiates) ,Talcum Powder,Color Pigments as release agents Oakite (a cleaning solvent), Ethylene Oxide (ETO), Carbob black, Xylene, Hexane, Hexanone 2, Antioxidant (rubber) ,Zinc Oxide ,Naphtha (rubber solvent), Phenol Benzene-Known carcinogen!!!!
ALSO..... Polyvinyl Chloride (Liquid Vinyl). This ingredient was used in all medical devices made at Edwards Lab, from tubing to gel.
