    rinaldo:

    If you do a search at a library, you will probably find a couple of books about how women were winning law suits because of the silicone implants. That was quite a few years ago, but I remember that water implants were good.

    However, I have heard that the FDA has appoved of the new silicone. Yet, the women in the book settled with the manufactuer out of court.

    Your breast implants ARE causing you to have fibromyalgia.
    That is one of the main illnesses listed in the info on all of the websites for silicone poisoning/illnesses etc. Please look these websites up. I can't tell you which one to look for there are so many. Sybil Goldrich was totally involved in the breast implant situation and has written books and made a movie about it. I wish I could tell you all that I know, but it would take up too much room. Those of us with silicone poisoning have the absolute worse cases of fibromyalgia because along with ours comes inflammation.
    95% of implants rupture and/or leak after just 5 yrs. The new saline ones are in a silicone sack that disenegrates and also gets moldy and gives your body gangrene. They are no better. Please get on the internet and research this out. Drs will tell you there is no connection, but there is. My best friend died from her implants.....the silicone leaked into her lungs and caused her to get ARDS. She was in intensive care for 3 mos. The drs were totally mystified as to what was wrong. Silicone has been found in lungs, livers, kidneys, uteruses, but most importantly it is found in your blood stream. There are labs all around the country who can do a blood test for a positive find of silicone if it is in your blood. Very expensive, but if you do the research you will find all kinds of info. Toxicdiscovery.com is one site. Info@commandtrust.com is another website with info. Look up silicone poisoning...type in breast implants and read all of the danders of breast implants. Lots of women were in on the Dow Corning class action suit...many died and never received any money because the suit took so long and the ones who did receive money only received about $5000. after years of suffering. There are drs listed on the many websites. One dr at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio is a specialist in removing them. Get them out now!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Please. Exfa

    Mine were saline/silicone cased, back in the 70's........illness began a few years later in my early 30's. No settlement money came my way; just eventually became disabled.
