Second Thoughts on Breasts (implants)

Found a thought-provoking editorial in The American magazine, titled "Second Thoughts on Breasts." which summarizes some of the history of regulatory issues with silicone implants. The effects of this on the corporation and employees of Dow Corning(which was sued out of existence)are touched upon nicely. It's ironic that if Dow had waited about 15 months (when the first of the large studies not finding links between silicone and disease was published by the Mayo Clinic) they would have not had to pay a dime of the multi-multi billion dollar settlement.
