On Friday, Sept. 14, 2018, U.S. health officials said they will convene a public meeting of medical advisers in 2019 on the safety of breast implants because of growing science on the topic, including an independent analysis that suggests certain rare health problems might be more common in women with implants containing silicone gel.

This is one for the books.

And also another similar word.

In 2018, a 30-year-old woman was walking down a Canadian street when her chest suddenly heated up.

And it hurt, too.

A look down revealed blood.

As reported by Sky News, she went to the McLean Clinic in Mississauga, Ontario, where they removed her breast implants and discovered a fractured rib.

But there was more: Her left bag contained a “bullet tract,” aligned with the hole in her skin.

Turns out, she’d been shot.

Her right implant was flipped upside down and had a damaged dome. And there in her chest lay a slug — beneath the right breast.

The bullet — along with hospital photos and scans — was turned over to the cops for forensic study.

As recently explained to CNN by McLean Director of Education and Research Dr. Giancarlo McEvenue, the deadly projectile must’ve ricocheted off the left implant and across the victim’s sternum, therefore being deflected from her heart.

Her implants, it appears, rescued her from death.

From Giancarlo’s report in the Sage medical journal this month:

“Clinical examination revealed a comfortable patient in no distress, with a single entry wound in the superior pole of the left breast. … Based on trajectory of bullet entry clinically and evaluation radiologically, the only source of bullet deflection of the bullet is the left breast implant. This implant overlies the heart and intrathoracic cavity and therefore likely saved the women’s life.”


And in case you were wondering:

“The bullet was determined to be copper jacketed 0.40 caliber by the police services.”

Some women say artificially enhancing their bust size changed their life. In one 30-year-old’s case, that was especially true.

With governments now going full Nanny Mode to protect us from germs —  forcing us to stay home, sending drones to tell us to go inside (here), raiding Amish barn bashes (here), and allowing only one person in a swimming pool at a time (here), maybe they’ll go beyond the call of duty in keeping us safe from shootings, too — by mandating all Americans get fake boobs. It’s for your own good.

On the other hand, depending on the size, it’ll make the 6-foot rule more difficult.

Either way, one lucky Canadian’s life span was augmented because her chest was.

Thank God for her silicone savior.

It’s a crazy world..and if I’m not mistaken, it’s getting crazier.
