New high-impact sports risk?
A British woman's breast implant reportedly exploded after she was hit in the chest by a paintball, which can travel at 190 mph.
The paintball company, UK Paintball, has now adjusted its policies and has issued a statement aimed at would-be lady paintballers. "We respectfully ask that any ladies with surgical breast implants notify our team at the time of booking," its says on its website. "You will be given special information on the dangers of paintballing with enhanced boobs and asked to sign a disclaimer."
And it adds: "You will also be issued with extra padding to protect your implants while paintballing."
This, of course, happened within days of an FDA official reaffirming that silicone breast implants on the market were safe to use.
