Why is the Breast Implant Information Project needed?

There is a lot of hype on health and cosmetic products. The interests and needs of ordinary people are often drowned out by the army of “experts” selling the new miracle treatment. Individuals who express appropriate concerns about the lack of conclusive data or the evidence of potential risks may find it difficult to have their voices heard.

The Breast Implant Information Project provides up-to-date information about the latest research on breast implants, so that teens, women, and their families have the information they need to make appropriate decisions.

We translate research findings into information that is useful. Our goal is to explain what is known and what is not known about the risks and safety of implants, and to make that information available to the media and the public.

We educate policy makers and other decision-makers through briefings, hearings, meetings, and written materials.

We share our publications and information with other organizations, researchers, and advocates. We work together to inform the public and be part of the public debate on policy issues.

As a research-based center, we provide information that is based in fact, not ideology or financial ties to the programs or products we analyze. In addition to the scientific expertise of our highly qualified staff, we rely on the expertise of unbiased, well-respected researchers from across the country.

Please let us know what concerns you have, what issues you would like us to work on, and how you think the needs of women and families can best be met by emailing us a info@breastimplantinfo.org OR calling us TOLL FREE at (844) 295-2212.
