Update: April 9, 2006
In Spring, 2005 I received a request to take this article off the internet upon request of the author and Conde Nast Publications who publishes Glamour Magazine.
They claimed copyright violation and am complying.
I am leaving a few excerpts from this revealing and powerful article which has educated untold thousands as to the very real dangers of saline implants.
It is my understanding that excerpts, such as those below, are allowed.
Part of them are a "Battle of the Experts" between a La Jolla Plastic Surgeon and myself. Click here.
It is my belief that Conde Nast and Ms. Collier's request was 'inspired' by the Quackwatch / NCAHF Team whose 'public relations' work with the silicone industry is helping take down as much negative material about breast implants as possible. "Friends" of theirs in the 'silicone support network' have removed all their revealing webpages as well as a webring that connected many links together. For the breast implant industry, it's all about image and they want theirs as pretty as possible.
There is a long, long list of scientists, conventional and althernative doctors and health advocates like myself who have been and are on their "hit lists."
Dr. Bernard Patten was doing wonderful work helping figure out the maze of neurological complications with breast implants.
Please read his story, Memoirs of a Junk Scientist by Dr. Bernard Patten .
I believe they stirred it up ... never admitting that their corporate connections lead to med device and implant money interests.
Those of us critical of their industry backed 'viewpoints' and methods and those leading edge scientists/healers looking at the complexities of Multipile Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) are under attack by the so-called 'quackbusters.'
To me ... it is yet another victory of the breast implant industry to narrrow the information available exposing dangerous medical devices and pharmaceuticals.
Both Kathryn Gordon, myself and all the other wonderful women interviewed in this article worked closely and diligently with the Glamour Team to create such a fine expose. We all had great relationships with them. They were professional and factual.
Everyday new women contact us about their saline implant problems ... many who reach out after finding this article, either in the magazine format or here online.
Meet Shari, another credible spirit who appeared on MTV sharing her son's and her experiences related to her implants.
To meet Dr. Kolb, quoted below, a Plastic Surgeon and implanted woman, please visit her website, Plastikos.
I will be forever grateful to Glamour Magazine and Conde Nast for taking the bold step and publishing this article nearly 5 years ago.
The concerns and dangers expressed in this fine article are as true now as then.
In May of 1999, on the advice of a friend who knew someone whoseimplant had ruptured in a car accident, she went to see Susan Kolb,M.D., a plastic surgeon in Atlanta. "I didn’t even have to tell Dr.Kolb my symptoms–she already knew what they were," recalls Gordon. "Istarted crying when she asked questions like, ‘Are you slurring yourwords?’ and ‘Do you feel like someone is scratching inside your chest?’ At last I’d found a doctor who didn’t think I was crazy and actually understood what I was going through." Dr. Kolb, who has saline implants herself, urged Gordon to have hers removed immediately.
Six weeks after Dr. Kolb removed Gordon’s implants and treated her with antibiotics and antifungal drugs, Gordon felt fine.
BOTTOM LINE: Im not saying everyone with breast implants is going to be happy. I see some women whose scar capsule around their implants contracts and hardens when we put them in. But it should be a womans choice, not the governments decision.
