This fall (2018) two major studies have been released confirming exactly what most women suffering from breast implant illness already know. Rather then regurgitate the information I'll just share a brief quote from each and send you over to the links directly for you the mull over yourself. Interestingly all the information that confirms what we know is always independently funded. Is it a coincidence that any research funded by those who have a financial interest in breast implant never has any definitive conclusions?
“The risk of women with breast implantation developing an autoimmune disease was 45 per cent higher compared to women without implants," said Jan Willem Cohen Tervaert, director of the Division of Rheumatology at the U of A.”
"It is important to note that the MD Anderson researchers found that the risks of certain autoimmune diseases increased by 800% (Sjogren syndrome), 700% (scleroderma), and 600% (arthritis) for the women with Mentor silicone gel breast implants compared to the general population of women of the same age and demographics. Stillbirths increased by 450% in the women who became pregnant. Other autoimmune and rare diseases were also significantly higher among women with Mentor silicone gel implants. These diagnoses were also statistically significantly higher (although not as dramatically increased) for women with Allergan implants compared to the general population of women of similar demographics.
