In 2005, more than 360,000 women and teenagers underwent surgery to have their breasts enlarged with silicone or saline implants and the numbers are growing rapidly!Most of these women are or will be someone's MOMMY and will be unable to properly care for their children just a few short years down the road after having implants.
Saline Implants and the Negative Effects They Have On The Entire Family Unit
I am a forty four year old wife and mother of two young children. If it weren't for my supportive family and my faith in God, I don't think I could go on living.
I had saline breast implants four years ago. I was told they were "safe" since they were made of salt water. What they didn't tell me was that the shell was made up of silicone, which is toxic. I had always been active and fairly healthy except for a few minor allergies.
Since I have had these "toxic balloons" my life has spiraled out of control due to my failing health. I have lost my career as a dental assistant, which means loss of partial income the family depended on.
We have spent thousands of dollars on medical bills, but the WORSE part is I mentally and physically have a very difficult time caring for my two children and husband at times.
My six and nine year old constantly ask me why I sleep a lot, never smile much and why we don't do some of the things we use to. It even hurts to hug them at times, as the pain in my breast is so severe.I can't make love to my husband as we had before I started to develop "severe spinal and neck arthritis." The pain is often more than I can bare afterwards. I am doing everything as fast as I possibly can to get these "toxic balloons" out.
In the mean time I have every symptom you can imagine:
Intraductal Papilloma on right breast
Small area of ischemia on my anterior heart valve
"Severe" spinal and neck arthritis
Swollen glands or lymph nodes
Numbness and tingling in finger tips
Weight gain (probably from all the pain meds they put you on)
Dry, itchy, stinging, bloodshot eyes
Mild sore throat or feeling of something in my throat
Dental problems that I never had before implants
I just cringe when I hear my beautiful 21 year old step-daughter saying she wants implants and when I hear young girls saying they want them for their Graduation present!
What is even worse is these "UNINFORMED PARENTS pay for them!
In 2005, more than 360,000 women and teenagers underwent surgery to have their breasts enlarged with silicone or saline implants and the numbers are growing rapidly!
Most of these women are or will be someone's MOMMY and will be unable to properly care for their children just a few short years down the road after having implants.
With the staggering statistics of children already having "absent fathers" in the home and the effects that that alone has on them, now imagine how the negative effects of having an "absent mother" will have on their lives.
It takes people like you and I to educate society about these "toxic balloons" and the damage they cause to women physically and mentally.
But what's even worse is the long-term effects it will have on the entire family.
Legislation is needed because the FDA has not been effective in protecting consumers from these potentially harmful products. Please read the report of Kim Gandy, President of NOW, on this important topic, FDA Approval of Dangerous Implants Follows FDA Pattern of Favoring Money and Politics Over Science.
