About this Episode

Breast Implants are among the most popular cosmetic surgery in the US, but are they actually more dangerous than doctors let on? Breast implants can in some cases lead to large cell lymphoma, an aggressive form of cancer.

We also discuss the phenomenon of BII Breast Implant Illness . BII is not officially recognized by the "medical community" but countless people report a series of symptoms related to autoimmune disorders that usually go away when they have their implants removed. Once again we learn that we need to advocate for our own health and listen to our bodies. There is a large internet community of people who have had their implants removed. They call themselves Explants, and these are their stories...

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA)Trusted Source report that people who link their health concerns with BII often experience a resolution of their symptoms if they have a surgeon remove their implants. The person usually does not replace the implant.
