I am currently trying to obtain a list of ALL ingredients used in ALL breast implants currently available for use in Canada, from Health Canada. Women deserve to know EXACTLY what’s being put in their body. This is the latest, somewhat helpful, yet still unsatisfactory, response:
The above information while extensive, is not an exact ingredient listing for a silicone breast implant. Manufactures have provided this information in confidence under the Medical Devices Regulations, but it cannot be considered for release without an Access to Information request. If there is a particular chemical component you are looking for, perhaps you could send me additional details, and I could further review the files to see exactly what information we may have.
Thank you for this information. There are some chemical components of particular interest to me, which I will pursue shortly, but a quick note to say that what I am looking for is FULL DISCLOSURE. Women have a right to know what’s being put into their body, not blindly put their trust in companies or studies that have not demonstrated a great track record in the past. How would I proceed with an Access to Information request?
TO BE CONTINUED!
