Too Much of a Good Thing Can Lead To Suicide?
Why, oh why?
Doctors from the Laval University of Quebec, along with others from the Canadian Public Health Agency and Cancer Care Ontario studied 24,600 women whom received breast implants for cosmetic purposes only. The study lasted 15 years. What they learned was that the women that had implants had a suicide rate 73% higher than the control group.
This startling finding is greatly supported by similar studies.
For example, in 2004, a Danish study found that silicone pumped women had a higher suicide rate. A University of Pennsylvania study in 2003 likewise had similar results.
So what's the deal?
These previous studies took stock of the psychological health of these women that decided to go under the knife to get bigger boobies. Generally, these women had lower self-esteem, less self-confidence, and higher rates of mental illness.
So Joan Rivers must have the lowest self-esteem known to man. Acutally, Joan Rivers has been dead for 10 years. Her daughter has been controlling her mother's body like a puppet.
What do these results mean? Simply put, doctors must tend to the psychological needs of women wanting breast implants. And often, cosmetic surgery isn't the complete answer to a woman's lack of confidence.
In related studies, women who received any kind of cosmetic surgery had a higher rate of suicide than the general public. But the breast implanted women had a 20% higher rate of suicide than those who had all types of plastic surgery.
In related news, Pamela Anderson has been put under suicide-watch.
