Subject: Silicone-General Consensus
Date: 1992-07-06 23:51:00 GMT

Just a semi-amusing aside to the discussion on the "inertness" of silicone:
About 20-25 years ago, the general consensus in the scientific community,
allegedly in the know, that silicone was inert in breast implants and the
like. Well, that turned out to be not quite true. However, as long as
you don't use the beer exposed to silicone gel for cosmetic augmentation,
you should be alright. :-)
