Breast Implants Increase Suicide Risk
"Researchers tracked the suicide rates for 3,527 Swedish women with breast implants over an eight-year period, according to an abstract of the study. Over that period, there were 175 suicide-related deaths for women with breast implants compared to the 133.4 average for a group of women that size."
"The study also found a 3-fold increase in deaths related to suicide, alcohol and drugs, as well as deaths from injuries and accidents for women with breast implants. The increased risk for suicide was not apparent until 10 years after implantation."
Could this be because women who are already predisposed to thinking their bodies (and, by extension, themselves) inadequate might tend to go for this sort of operation? Does the increased attention they get for their bigger mammaries both flatter and depress them?
