People do not realize it, but our lives run parallel to the animals we are so desperately trying to save. The Silicone Implant from Dow Corning. I am going to key in this excerpt: Invention and Design: The Dow Corning Corporation. "Also, in 1962, the National Institute of Health funded the BATTELLE MEMORIAL INSTITUTE to conduct research {37} on the stability of silicone implants in animals. The Institute's two-year study focused on the effect of the body on the various polymers studied, which included Polyethlene, Teflon, Mylar, Nylon, and Silasticreg.. In particular, the study concentrated on the polymers' tensile strength and elongation, along with the reaction of the implant site to the polymers. (Tensile strength is a measure of the polymer's ability to withstand elongation forces]. The studies used MONGREL DOGS as test sites, implanting samples of all five materials in each. The plastics were recovered after six, eleven, and seventeen month intervals. Their tensile strength was recorded before implantation and after each removal, to track any loss, along with any elongation due to implementation. after 17 months, Silasticreg. showed little decrease in tensile strength and slight elongation. According to the study.
