The Fit Student—Could Breast Implants Cause Disease?

“Many thousands of women were told that breast implants were safe and ‘would last a lifetime’” (Kolb, location 147 of 3363, 4%). As students, you likely don’t carry much cash.  Some broke AU femmes might ponder working part-time at pubs.  And some of these women may opt for breast implants.  But I urge you—do neither. … Read more »
