PIP Breast Implant Scandal in France!!!

Post by susangraham on 13th January 2012, 8:02 am

Papers pointed out:

•Breast cancer linked to French implants
• Over 40,000 women were reported to have PIP breast implants
•Company used industrial silicon to save money

However, PIP breast implants: UK government says 'no evidence' to remove implants

A government review into the rupture rate of banned PIP breast implants has, so far, found no evidence for removing them, according to the health secretary Andrew Lansley.

The review he ordered is due to report by the end of the week.

The implants caused a health scare after French authorities found a rupture rate of 5% and recommended implants were removed.

However, figures in the UK have suggested a much lower rate.

Mr Lansley told the BBC: "The overwhelming evidence continues to support the advice we've given women previously.

"It is not advisable for women to routinely have implants removed because the risk associated with an operation of that kind would outweigh the benefit of removing these implants."
