Half of Beverly Hills is about to go into a panic attack!
A new report claims that an Italian study on lab rats proved that the active agent in wrinkle fix-it Botox, botulinum toxin, can travel along neurons from the injection site and into the brain!
Yes, bitches, you can get that shit up in your brain! No wonder half them hos in Hollywood are brain dead.
Botox's manufacturer, Allergan, tried to spin the Italian scientist's findings and in a statement said that the Italian scientists "injected the material directly into the brain."
Wrong…the Italians injected the neurotoxin into facial muscles—and from there it found its way to the brainstem!
Why discredit the Italians? Cause it contradicts the findings of earlier studies, which suggested that the neurotoxin is completely broken down at the injection site into innocuous compounds and does not migrate beyond it—or if it does, only into the bloodstream or lymph system. Allergan thinks those older studies are more credible.
Some of you may be thinking Botox may not have the 'rat brain effect' on a human. Doesn't matter to us! A rat is a living thing… if it could do some crazy shit to them, there's no way in hell we would it anywhere near us!
Another thing the report points out is the amount of hospitalizations and deaths that have been reported following Botox injections.
In 2005 scientists at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration analyzed 1,437 such "adverse events" between 1989, when Botox was approved for eye spasms, and 2003. Most came from people who got Botox to erase their wrinkles, but there were 28 deaths of people who had received it for medical purposes.
Botox at your own risk, Perezcious ones.
You have been warned!
