Breast implant used by 99% of women in Britain is ‘triggering new cancer’, warn scientist
dailymail.co.uk ^ | 3 May 2014 | Barney Calman

A new form of cancer could be triggered by a type of breast implant popular with British women, scientists are warning.

At least 150 cases of the disease, called anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) of the breast, have been reported, including a handful in Britain.

Nine in 10 cases of the disease – a cancer of the immune system – have been in women who have received breast implants with a textured outer shell, according to experts.

Other than the women who get the implants for a reason, such as a mastectomy, they simply DESERVE what happens next. If you can’t live with the body God gave you, then tough.

“99% of women in Britain have breast implants?”

LOL! I never thought much of British women to begin with, but if 99% need implants, then I wonder if they were born as women.

Maybe that explains the fact that the British population is declining like mad and their country will be repopulated by others within a generation or so.

So I guess according to you everyone who had braces or gotten a crown deserves to get oral cancer?

Yep, you DESERVE what you get. Both my wife and myself could use braces (and we can easily afford them, even without insurance), but we take what we’re given. As to crowns, if it affects one ability to eat meat, then one MUST get crowns. If not, then it can be debated.

I’m JUST SICK of British Women thinking that increased mammary size will suddenly make them attractive. There’s more to it, starting with personality, and then politics.

When Oh When Oh When Oh When are "scientists" going to learn that post-disease correlations do NOT prove ANYTHING? [Forget about journalists, they're ineducable.]

100% of the women with this cancer drink water. 100% of them breathe oxygen. The press breathlessly reports this kind of nonsense without fail. In 1980 there was a post mortality study of pancreatic cancer deaths that showed nearly 90% of the victims drank coffee, which USA Today headlined with a huge story about the cancer risks of coffee. Once controlled for diet and alcohol intake [which was the actual cause] this "breathtaking correlation" disappeared.

Seeing an effect and noting a common point of intersection with a pre-event cause has a name: Superstition. Superstition isn't science, and government funding doesn't make it so.

I agree with you.

If healthy women put foreign objects in their bodies just for vanity and don’t expect it to affect their health down the line, then they deserve the disease.

Mastectomy is a different story.

I’m just curious why men don’t surgically install stuff into their bodies.

You're right.

Hence it follows that people who make completely asinine remarks about terminal illnesses on internet forums deserve to be viewed as ignorant morons.

You make an exception on dental work if it’s needed to eat meat? What if you were intended to be a vegetarian? Your logic is conflicted and massively flawed. We shouldn’t live in houses, drive cars, wear clothes, or work for money, either.

You don’t need functional teeth to eat vegetarian. Eating meat is the MEANING of being a human, at least on this site.

I don’t know too many people that IMPLANT glasses. But if you mean Cataracts, then that is a MEDICAL NECESSITY, unlike most breast implants.

Aren't those temporary? One doesn't need surgery to have those removed and they're not inside the body. Anyway, braces and crowns are needed to fix an existing problem. Big boobs are not needed for survival unless it's the new brain.

Back to teeth. I think fillings are more of a problem if they're mercury.

I don’t know about “deserve the disease”, but they certainly are in NO POSITION to complain or file lawsuits if they get sick.

Makes sense - if there is a MEDICAL REASON, then it may well be worth rolling the dice on implants.

What a compassionate heart you have. Such a Christian attitude! So if you develop cancer, are we to assume that you did something to deserve all that suffering, financial ruin, grief, loss, and an agonizing death? You must be a horrible person to deserve that.

There is no MEDICAL REASON to GET implants. There is only a medical reason why a woman is suddenly unhappy with her physical appearance. Implants never save a life, and are ever necessary for life support. They are simply to help women cope with the sudden change in their appearance during a harrowing experience like chemotherapy.

"If you can’t live with the body God gave you, then tough."

Well, I love a war on FR so here goes.

First, it's pretty axiomatic about women that they obsess over their appearance. Don't blame this on culture or the media; women have been like this throughout time. The Bible cautions women against excessive regard for their appearance, and it has been well documented that women of antiquity from Cleopatra to Jezebel all obsessed with hair, clothing, and the forms of makeup and youth potions available at the time.

Acknowledging said article, a female journalist at the Daily Mail a number of years ago did a personal study of the effect of bigger breasts on British men. She was a normal, attractive gal but wasn't well-endowed; she had a makeup artist prepare a new rack that looked as real as anything. The impact on men was astounding. Check out the article yourself:

My Instant Boob Job

Given that such is the effect of bigger boobs on the men who view them, I am not surprised that 30,000 women in the UK get boob jobs each year. I expect that 300,000 or 3 million women wish they could, or wish they would.

So BobL, for heavens sake, back off. Sounds like you have a dog in this hunt because you are waaaay too obsessed with this matter.

Also, BobL, people who CONSTANTLY insert all-capital words into their WRITING are not considered more COHERENT, eloquent, or CONVERSATIONAL. They just validate that they are STRIDENT in their writing and probably very UNPLEASANT to be AROUND. I can just imagine discussing this TOPIC with you at a garden PARTY hosted by my friends; we don't SUFFER fools and within about 30 MINUTES you'd be standing alone in the backyard trying to get the stars to listen to your HAREBRAINED comments.

Constantly using CAPITALS is also pretty JUVENILE as well.
