Cheap Breast Implant Silicon Comes Under Scanner
These days women are going in for breast implants to get sleek physic and attractive shape but a few among them know that some clinics are using cheap silicon for breast implants, which may put the lives of women in danger.
Recently, the French Government announced that women who have gone through cheaper breast implants should get them removed as surgeons have been found guilty of using cheap industry silicon. Although the French Government has raised doubts over the safety of using industry silicon, the UK's medical authorities have said that the industry silicon doesn't have any safety issue.
The French Government is continuously raising warnings over the use of cheaper silicon. It has warned that the industry silicon, also known as Poly Implant Prothese (PIP), can trigger cancer among women. Therefore, women have been advised to get the implanted breast removed, as a precautionary method.
About 30,000 women in France and 40,000 women of the UK have gone through cheaper breast implants. As no concrete evidence has been found behind industry silicone triggering cancer among women, a meeting by the French Government has been called in which the cancer specialist will shed light on whether or not industry silicone can trigger cancer.
It has been informed that eight women who went through the pain of breast implant with industry silicone have reported of having contacted cancer. Moreover, last year, a woman who underwent breast implant succumbed to death last year.
Implants are vulnerable of busting but the implants done with the use of industry silicone has higher chances of leaking and may cause inflammation among women. Silicone breast implants have been into controversies since 2006. It is hoped that soon the government would be able to solve the controversy by either putting an end to it or by setting new guidelines.
