What a suprise. Women who have a poor body image to begin with, end up taking their own lives more often. Thank you captain obvious. More shocking is how they picked this headline and not the more important and more uplifting info from the study:
Among the more than 40,000 women in the study, those who'd received cosmetic breast implants had lower-than-average risks of dying from breast cancer, heart disease and a host of other major diseases.
I guess this info did not incite fear so they went with the suicide angle.

Get the implants put on the back.

Problem solved.

correlation != causation.

Ehh, let the psychotic whores kill themselves. We'll be better off.

Old news. We all read it in the last boob thread. Nothing new to discuss should leave more room for pictures.

Well, that about covers it.

I don't understand news. It's blatantly obvious why these should be correlated, and it's not the direct causation that's implied. In fact, the answer is so obvious that the study is almost devoid of any real interest.

Why does this make the news? Are people actually dumb enough to take it at face value? Or do the editors just underestimate them?

Um, if you get breast implants, you probably didn't have much natural boobage to begin with, so of course your chance of breast cancer is lower.

Similarly, if you get breast implants, you're vain and very concerned with your appearance, so you eat right and exercise more.

You spend 5K on a new set of cans and then realize you are just as worthless, ugly, and mentally incapable of opening a cereal box as you were before your new boobs.... Yeah they look real.. feel nice, and everybody likes them.. but they don't like you... now fix me a sammich.

I don't think amount of boobage has anything to do with chance of breast cancer.

More likely that people who don't like one part of themselves have other issues, too.

Life linked to suicide.

There's the normal cushy breast tissue they had before then you hit an oddly shaped pectoral muscle. Might be different for different types of implants though.

i prefer natural, but since my GF is DD, i guess i'm somewhere in the middle.

whats weird though, is that the girls who listen to emo and cut themselves/kill themselves/etc. usually are flat or at least small chested. whats up with that?
 
2006-08-19 02:35:43 AM  
Hah! Awesome work, guys. Now you've got to wade through that scary biatch's face to get to the bewbage. I could not ask more. :)

I think that'd be the music, dude.

At least music affects my mood.

My soon to be ex girlfreind's daughter is a 29 year old stripper with fake tits, and it is painfully obvious that she sold her innocence for easy money and cannot figure out why all the men she meets treat her with suspicion and are only interested in a great sex relationship. Dumb farking biatch,when your hair is two different colors not found in nature and all the guys you hang with are so inked up that their Mothers do not recognise them, what did you expect. As a plus, she is keeping a couple of pancake make up manufacturers and fetish internet shoe sites in buisness though.

Of course fake boobs are linked to suicide; if I grab one more fake set of boobies, Ima gonna kill myself !

Sorry...but if their esteem was so low that they got implants in the first place, it's no shock that they suicided later...

Ow, ow, ow. Cramp!

Thanks for the laugh, godxam.

Ahem...

Image Control: Make sure that any image links you post are under your explicit control or you may find yourself in timeout. Linking an image to another site that is not under your control can often result in that site changing the contents of what you linked. Think about that for a second or two, before you blithely wander off to another thread and find yourself banned. Hyperlink at your own risk to your account.

/Just sayin' ;-)

I'm guessing that the low breast cancer rate has a lot to do with early detection of the cancer (due to surgeries, pre-op exams, post-op exams, x-rays). The low heart disease rate might be because the women who get the implants largely have a tendency to be low fat, either through liposuction or diet and exercise.

sullyman

I also find what you found meaningful from the article slightly obvious as well. For starters, the women are going to have someone examining their breasts before the surgery, so if there was anything cancerous in the breasts to begin with, this would make it more likely to be detected.

Plus, after you get a boob job, they get touched way more anyways... everyone knows that :P.

i once tried the schick quattro. I found it to be more abrasive and damaging to the skin than the "mach 3". I am sticking to the two blade system. i can deal with the five o clock shadow.
