Julie asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Is there any difference between the contents of silicone injections in your blood stream and silicone from ruptured silicone breast implants being found in the blood stream?

What do you think?

Silicone from ruptured breast implants migrate primarily via the lymphatic system.

Why would someone inject silicone iv?
