Canadian Government Declares Silicones (Etc.) Toxic to Environment ... but not to Human Beings ? ? ? ?

From Health Lover, Ilena Rosenthal

WoW. While I am thrilled to see that the Canadian Government is taking seriously the many concerns regarding various synthetic chemicals ... silicones included.

This statement, however, sounds like it comes straight from the doublespeak of George Orwell's "Ministry of Truth" in 1984.

EXCERPT: "The government concludes these synthetic chemicals do not pose a risk to human health, but rather should be declared toxic to the environment."

What ? ? ?

Dr. Zuckerman's words are true and clear:

EXCERPT: "A more accurate assessment would have been to say that the health hazards are unknown for individual use of products with D4, because they have not been adequately studied. I would think that women of childbearing age would be especially concerned about having breast implants because of possible infertility problems that could
result from D4."

I'm still astounded the Canadian Government can claim no possible risk to human life, when this science mentioned below is unfolding:

EXCERPT: "The government's newly released risk assessment of D4, found in silicone breast implants, states the synthetic chemical impairs fertility. It also flags a finding of the Danish Environmental Protection Agency, identifying the liver as a "target organ for D4 exposures."

Please help us keep the pressure on Health Canada ... it's time for them ... and the FDA ... to stop caving into the demands of the
medical device makers.
