2016 Results Summary:One of the most vulnerable groups of women exposed to toxic PIP implants is pregnant mothers. We asked women who have been pregnant with PIP implants to respond to 20 questions about their pregnancy and their babies. The Original Survey is available here: PIP Action Mums 20 Questions about PIP PIP Action Campaign has now published a summary of the responses from pregnant mums which it will submit to the European Commission's Call for Information along with other REAL WORLD evidence about the real and horrific dangers of PIP Implants. In the Scenihr Final Opinion, published in 2014, two deliberately misleading paragraphs are devoted to the issue of pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. This is what the European Commission accepts as science:
9.2. Risk to the children of women with PIP implants 9.2.1. Impacts on the foetus Based on both one and two generation studies there is no evidence that the cyclic siloxanes cause developmental toxicity, or have an adverse effect on rat fertility. Taken in conjunction with the bioavailability and other considerations discussed above it can be concluded that no risk, due to the release of D4 and D5, is anticipated. 9.2.2. Nursing infants Low levels of siloxanes in breast milk have been found in a single subject with a ruptured PIP implant. However, siloxanes have been found at detectable levels in over 20% of breast milk samples taken from women without breast implants. Moreover, commercially available semi-skimmed cow's milk was found to contain considerably higher levels of total silicone than the sample of breast milk taken from women with a ruptured PIP implant. Thus, no identifiable increased risk for the nursing infant is anticipated from breast milk from a mother with ruptured breast implants.
