    Breast implants saves woman after Hezbollah attack

    JERUSALEM (AFP) - One Israeli woman has received an unexpected boost from her breast implants during the Lebanon war -- the silicone embeds saved her life during a Hezbollah rocket attack, a doctor said.

    "This is an extraordinary case, but it's a fact that the silicone implants prevented her from a more serious and deeper wound," Jacky Govrin, of the hospital in Nahariya that treated the woman, told army radio Tuesday.
    "The young woman went through surgery two years ago to have a larger chest," he said. "During the war she was wounded in the chest by shrapnel" that got stuck in the implants instead of penetrating further.

    The woman did not emerge from her ordeal completely unscathed, however.
    "The shrapnel was removed but the implant had to be replaced," Govrin said.

    Buddy of mine told me last night some women was denied entry to a plane because she had a "gel like substance" she refused to remove. Supposedly the TSA could detect this stuff on her...she had implants. I threw the bs flag but maybe its true. He said it was on the radio show "Coast to Coast" with George Nouri.
