Every day hundreds of women are reporting profound illness and health problems due to saline and silicone breast implants to government organizations, the medical community, health professionals, breast implant awareness communities, websites and social platforms.
The crux of the issue is that breast implant manufacturers are not presenting accurate science and withholding significant and truthful information about the contents of their products and the fact that the chemicals in saline and silicone breast implants are seriously toxic to life and interact with and harm our tissues and body processes required for good health. Additionally plastic surgeons are lying to patients about the safety of silicone and breast implants.
If we were told that silicone and breast implants are made of highly toxic chemicals and when implanted these chemicals will create profound illness in the body, we would never have purchased breast implants. If we were told that breast implants sweat and bleed their toxic contents from the first day of implantation we would not have bought breast implants. If we were informed of the accurate failure rates of breast implants we would never have purchased them. Proper disclosure of the health consequences of breast implants is not occurring and, in fact, most of the medical community is outright lying about silicone safety and quoting junk science created by breast implant manufacturers that covers up the truth about their toxic products ruining the health of women.
Thank goodness for social media that provides the ability to spread the truth about the toxicity of silicone and the grave health consequences of breast implants and other silicone medical devices such as the Mirena IUD. Please continue to share this site on social media and social platforms to keep spreading truth.
As there is so much illness caused by breast implants, we believe it is just a matter of time before another round of lawsuits arise against implant manufacturers who have failed to present truthful and accurate science and failed to properly disclose that their products are seriously toxic and harmful to life. Government organizations such as the FDA and Health Canada are doing nothing to protect women from these corporations making toxic products and in fact seem to be covering it up.
We think the next logical step is collecting together and collecting data which will result in and aid lawsuits against breast implant manufacturers who fail to disclose the truth about their harmful products and damage life.
If you are thinking of getting breast implants, we highly suggest that you get a baseline of medical testing to show your health status before you get implants. We suggest that you take a witness and a recording device with you and record your plastic surgeon telling you that implants are safe and that silicone is an inert substance that does not interact with your tissues. This is the pathetic lie that has been coined and is told over and over again. If your plastic surgeon refers you to junk science to prove implants are safe, obtain a copy of this junk science for your files. You will need these things for future lawsuits against plastic surgeons and against implant manufacturers. Record pertinent information about your implants such as the brand, manufacturer and serial numbers. Obtain your implantation surgery reports and any documentation in regard to the implantation process. Then, as breast implant illness presents, which it will, we suggest documenting symptoms and doctors visits on an ongoing basis in a journal and documenting the general decline in your health by collecting data along the way such as tests results, diagnoses, pictures etc. which show the case of your arising health problems. When you explant get your implants back and have them analyzed and tested for their failure and why they caused you illness. Build your case all along the way. Because implant manufacturers and plastic surgeons are failing to properly disclose the truth and health consequences of implants, they are leaving themselves liable and ripe for huge lawsuits.
If you have breast implants now start collecting the same data. Obtain previous test results and check ups in the past, before breast implants, that evidences your good health. Record your symptoms as they occur and document the decline in your health with test results, diagnoses and pictures. Start building your case.
I was never interested in the legal aspect of breast implants but I have to come realize it is the next logical step and probably the only way we will be able to overcome corporations creating toxic products and hiding behind junk science that they create and pass off to the FDA and Health Canada who cares little for your well being and has been corrupted by corporations.
With enough participants and enough high quality information, we will naturally attract lawyers and lawsuits. When enough lawsuits occur, the implant manufacturers will be brought to justice and change will occur.

BREAKING LITIGATION NEWS
A Seattle woman, Sara Ebrahimi, has filed suit against Mentor Worldwide LLC and its parent company, Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc., alleging the defective manufacturing of Mentor MemoryGel Silicone Breast Implants. The lawsuit alleges that Mentor and its parent company, Johnson & Johnson, repeatedly failed to follow the requirements imposed by the Food and Drug Administration ( FDA ) in connection with the approval of Mentor’s premarket approval application. It is further alleged that the companies failed to warn the FDA and women receiving the implants of the devices known dangerous propensities. The lawsuit–Ebrahimi v. Mentor Worldwide LLC, et al. (case no. 2:16-cv-07316-DMG)–was filed in the Central District of California in Los Angeles, where Mentor is headquartered. Suit was filed on September 28, 2016. Mentor develops, manufactures, and markets products for surgical and nonsurgical procedures, including Mentor MemoryGel Silicone Breast Implants. The lawsuit alleges that chemicals Mentor used in the manufacturing process bled through the implants, and into Ms. Ebrahimi’s body, causing her to suffer serious medical problems. It is alleged that Mentor and Johnson & Johnson knew that theirdevices were defective, yet allowed them to be surgically implanted in Ms. Ebrahimi. It is further alleged that Mentor and Johnson & Johnson failed to warn the FDA of these risks by not conducting adequate follow-through studies.
Mentor MemoryGel Silicone Breast Implants are regulated medical devices under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act that require FDA approval. As a condition of approval, the FDA required that Mentor conduct post-approval studies to demonstrate, over time, that its silicone implants were safe and effective. The lawsuit alleges that Mentor failed to design effective studies and, as a result, failed to provide the FDA with the longitudinal studies that were required as a condition to the devices approval. It is alleged that: It was Mentor’s obligation to design and execute a study where women were able to access internet forms that are easily understood and provide a working forum to report their experience with implants. Mentor intentionally and systematically failed to make this happen which is a violation of the FDA’s conditions for approval. Data collection was sparse and potential serious side effects and harmful complications were downplayed and under-reported due to inadequate sample size.
Ms. Ebrahimi is represented by the law firm of Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy, LLP of San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York, which has decades of experience litigating complex cases involving products that harm consumers.
