Document Investigation and Review Team
"I TOLD THEM WITH FINGERS CROSSED THAT WE AT DOW HAD STUDIES UNDERWAY BUT ONE OF THESE DAYS THEY'LL BE ASKING FOR THE RESULTS OF THOSE STUDIES."
"A MUST READ FOR ALL WOMEN"
Slick brochures filled with promises of safety, nods of assurance from surgeons, and their own strong desire for better self-esteem were often the last bits of affirmation that thousands of women relied on before making their final decision regarding breast augmentation. Many of them had done their research, and all of the information available to them indicated that the implants were harmless. Most of the women were very sick before they found out what Dow Corning and now Poly Implant Prostheses (PIP), knew right from the beginning—the implants were not safe.
READ THE INSIDE STORY NOW-
THE D.I.R.T. COMMITTEE is the true story of one woman, but could be the story of any woman who was implanted with Dow Corning’s prostheses. Gail Hamilton’s story, from implant to illness and fight for survival, to investigation of incriminating Dow documents, to Dow settlement, runs parallel to the Dow Corning silicone gel breast implant saga. The book contains well-researched Dow Corning documentation and statements that, in themselves, tell the real story behind the spin on implants. The prostheses have made many women sick and have also been responsible for the deaths of untold others. The documents paint a grim picture of how Dow spun media reports and lab studies including the Mayo and Harvard/Brigham studies, and punished whistle blowers and journalists that dared to inform the public and provide timely, accurate information. The lives and health of the women depended on this shielded information. As a result, lives were lost, marriages and families were destroyed, careers were abandoned, and financial ruin was common for implanted women who had once been healthy, thriving, individuals. The book also covers information on the newly recalled PIP implants that are the subject of much finger pointing and distress for an estimated 400,000 women around the world who have received them. The parallels between these stories is no accident.
