Almanac ... July 8, 1998 ... Dow Corning Reaches Settlement Agreement for Women Harmed by Their Products

Almanac  ... Sunday July 8, 1998

In 1998, a tentative settlement was reported between Dow Corning Corp.
and lawyers for 170,000 women who claimed they had become ill from the
company`s silicone breast implants
Nine years later ... a very large percentage of the women have received no compensation ... and the last figures I saw was less than $10,000 per woman had been paid out for years of surgeries, scars and failed implants. Many women have given up hope ... others have died.
Blessings to all from Ilena
