Breast Implants and Suicide
Do you know that a study claims that, “Women who get cosmetic breast implants are nearly three times as likely to commit suicide as other women.”
Why would something that is supposedly so empowering lead to suicide?
No notable increase was seen in the first 10 years after surgery, but 10 to 19 years after, risk was 4.5 times higher, and six times higher after 20 years, compared with the expected suicide rate. Researchers say it’s not clear if the increase was the result of underlying psychiatric illness.
Could the “underlying psychiatric illness” be the culture that advocates for implants?
Why do you suspect women with implants are killing themselves at a greater rate than women without implants?
