Study links breast implants with cancers:
This article was originally published in Clinica
Results from a US study have shown that women with breast implants have up to three times greater risk of developing respiratory-tract or brain cancers than those without. The results only show that there is a statistical link with cancers, not that the implants caused the diseases. The findings are based on a 12-year study of 13,500 women who received a variety of breast implants. The work, conducted by the National Cancer Institute, is due to be published in the May issues of Epidemiology and the Annals of Epidemiology.
