French Breast Implants Contain Fuel Additive….. Ready For De Fusee

January 2, 2012

French breast implant manufacturer PIP used an untested fuel additive in its now-banned implants that have triggered a worldwide scare, French radio station RTL reported Monday.

RTL said it obtained an exact breakdown of the materials used in the faulty implants, including Baysilone, Silopren and Rhodorsil, all of which are industrial products never tested or approved for clinical use. The products, used in the oil or rubber industries, allegedly caused the silicone gel implants to have a high rupture rate.

French authorities including health safety agency AFSSAPS already knew that the implants contained industrial rather than medical quality silicone, but this is the first time the use of petrol industry additives has been reported.

“According to the AFSSAPS, it was known that this was an unsuitable gel, usually used in food manufacturing or for computers,” a doctor advising implant wearers, Dominique-Michel Courtois, told AFP. But “there was no way of knowing that the gel contained an additive for fuel.
