Alle siliconenborsten mogelijk riskant



Dr. Diana Zuckerman speaking to the Canadian Parliament on Breast Implants & Breast Cancer

Breast Implant Info, 8 juni 2006

[originele transcriptie hier - site van het Canadese parlement]

[...] Just to start off by saying, we've made a lot of mistakes about breast implants in the United States, and I think and hope that Canada can show more wisdom than we have. Clinical trials are a major source of information on the short-term risks of breast implants and breast implants have been on the market for more than 40 years, but the clinical trials have only studied women for two or three years. That's a big shortcoming. The clinical trials have been conducted by implant manufacturers as part of their efforts to get approval in the United States and Canada, so for that reason there's some bias in those studies.

[...] Now I'm going to talk a little bit about what are called the symptoms of auto-immune disease and this was presented at the FDA meeting, but it is not published anywhere or available widely, so I wanted to share it with you. The implant makers were asked to ask the women what kind of symptoms they had and what they found was after only two years there was a statistically significant increase in pain and other auto-immune symptoms.

Onderzoek naar alle typen siliconen implantaten
Nieuwsuur, 14 januari 2012

Na de ophef over de lekkende implantaten van het Franse PIP rijst nu de vraag of er überhaupt veilige siliconen implantaten bestaan. Vanavond een reportage met twee patiënten en een arts en een gesprek met Diane Zuckermann. Zij is een expert op het gebied van siliconen-onderzoek en is zeer kritisch de invloed van siliconen op het menselijke lichaam.

En:

[...] A more complete picture of the risks of silicone gel implants is available at www.breastimplantinfo.org. In addition, the FDA offers a pamphlet and a booklet that include photographs and describe many of the problems women experience with breast implants (for example, capsular contracture, infection, and necrosis). The additional problem of silicone’s leaking and spreading to other parts of the body, after an implant breaks, needs much further study, especially in terms of immune system problems that may develop.
Many women believe that breast implants will make them feel better about themselves and more satisfied with their lives. Studies do not bear this out, however; in fact, implant makers’ own studies show that women tend to have slightly lower self-esteem and less satisfaction with their lives two years after getting breast implants, compared to before. Moreover, many women—especially older women - have to have multiple surgeries before achieving an “acceptale” result.

[...] It disturbs me that instead of a society that’s more tolerant of flab, wrinkles, hair and imperfections on all of us, regardless of age race and gender, we’re heading further in the Barbie and Ken direction.
