Breast implant manufacturers knew of multiple risks associated with implants, and responded by terminating studies, sponsoring only research they could control, and by misrepresenting the risks to the users, physicians, and regulatory agencies.

Below is the List of Chemicals which experts have analyzed to be in the explanted breast implant shell envelopes and gels.

  • Methyl Ethyl Ketone
  • Cyclohexane
  • Isopropyl Alcohol
  • Denatured Alcohol
  • Acetone
  • Urethane
  • Lacquer thinner
  • Ethyl Acetate
  • Epoxy Resin
  • Epoxy hardener
  • Amine
  • Printing ink
  • Toluene
  • Freon
  • Silicone
  • Lofol (formaldehyde)

  • Flux
  • Metal cleaning acid
  • Eastman 910 glue (Cyanoacyryiates)
  • Talcum Powder
  • Color Pigments as release agents
  • Oakite (a cleaning solvent)
  • Ethylene Oxide (ETO)
  • Carbob black
  • Xylene
  • Hexane
  • Hexanone 2
  • Antioxidant (rubber)
  • Zinc Oxide
  • Naphtha (rubber solvent)
  • Phenol
  • Benzene-Known carcinogen!!!!
  • Polyvinyl Chloride (Liquid Vinyl) This ingredient was used in all medical devices made at Edwards Lab, from tubing to gel.
  • Methylene Chloride/Dichloromethane. This breaks down in the body so blood cannot carry oxygen. It metabolizes carbon monoxide poisoning and causes central nervous system depression.

People working in the plants that manufacture these chemicals limit their exposure to them. It's unbelievable that as intelligent human beings we permit this type of internal chemical exposure.
