PIP implants don't cause cancer

It was the health scare that caused thousands of women to rush to have their breast implants removed.

But a new report into the PIP scandal has now found they don't pose any long-term health threat.

Although it will be a relief to some, the study DID find that they are still twice as likely to rupture compared to other implants.

Julian Druker reports.

    I'm very Skeptical that PIP implants are safe too many women seem to be saying publicly I feel very ill due to my PIP implants they feel that's the real reason why. I did consider a boob job throughout my twenties(I'm now aged 36) but never did it due to a constant lack of money and I didnt want silcone in my body I think even with the safeguards in place I didnt want to poision my blood stream as I felt that could mybe kill me in the end.I also developed MS so I now realise if I had gone ahead it would have been a big mistake for me.
