Hello,

99% of the internet is misinformation. Google is working on a system that lets the reader know the validity of a website. In every field of science, including medicine, there has been a war with those bent on spreading misinformation, usually for monetary gain. The anti-breast implant movement is alive and well, providing the internet with plenty of misinformation. Don't be swayed; you are safe. Best of luck!
