Breast implant fiasco
While the pip breast implants scandal spread worldwide, government reactions are contradictory. Czech, France and Germany counsel women to remove them even without rupture while Australia and the UK consider that there is no urge to remove them and that the PIP rupture rate is no higher than other brands and even in case of a rupture that PIP industrial silicone has not proven to be carcinogen. Depending on the country they are attached to, health authorities do not share the same message. Exactly like finance departments for the rescue of the Euro. And like for the Euro, a lack of regulation could bear the responsibility of the breast implant fiasco.
