France Is Paying For Removal Of Faulty Breast Implants

| Filed under: HealthCancer


Thanks to faulty implants known to burst after just a year and cause a rare type of cancer, the French government is willing to pay for the removal of roughly 30,000 breast implants.

France's Ministry of Magic Health is putting up tens of thousands of dollars to protect citizens after learning breast implants from company called Poly Implant Prosthese (PIP) are connected to a woman's death from anaplastic large cell lymphoma.

Women who get them removed, however, will not get reimbursed for new implants unless the PIP implants were originally for reconstructive surgery.

Regardless of that little detail, we think it is a very responsible decision on the French government's part!

Americans with implants shouldn't have to worry about any health concerns because the FDA did not approve the use of PIP products in 2000.
