COSSkids or the "Coalition of Silicone
Survivors" 2nd generation, is a small pure
Dutch group of woman which, as a result of
experience with silicone implants more as 30
years ago began to see, that their health
problems could well be come from the silicone
breast implants in their bodies. After that
assumption we have sought contact with people
with similar complaints.
There were at the time of emergence of
COSSkids only few, through interest groups
throughout Europe and the United States, that
where screeming to the world that something
was badly wrong with their health after they
received silicone-filled breast implants to
replacement or augmentation/beautification of
their own breasts. The answer that these women
by their doctors often got was: "it's between the
ears". A few respectful and irresponsible
approach that actually turned out not to be far
from the truth, having regard to the clog effect
of silicone in the brain, organs and veins. (see
Because we had not only encountered the
problem of "silicone women" but also saw the
effects on our children who were born under the
breast implants of the mother, we could not find
ourselve in the interests of groups in the
Netherlands that first wanted to solve the
problem of the women. We therefore looked to
the USA and locks us in to a more progressive
vision of COSS Colorado USA that what the
2nd generation victims concerned. It is
therefore, in our opinion, that both problems are
linked with one another. Unfortunately the
founder of COSS USA, Linda Roth, in early
2000 died from the consequences of her own
What do we hope to achieve?
Of course, intelligent women can decide the
best for themselves if they want to take the risk
of getting sick by "silicone breast implants".
However, we find it necessary to establish fair
and truthful information, so that they be able to
make the right choice. A important choice for
their life and health, but also for the future of
their offspring may be extremely important.
What we pursue, in particularity is that there wil
be a ban to girls and women, regardless of age,
to implant silicone prosthesis before family
formation should be complete. So that their
children have a fair chance to a healthy and
There should also be targeted independent
scientific research to be conducted into the
effects of silicone and the additives used in the
human organism and how they mutate, in order
to intervene in the protein properties.
Also nice would it be, that doctors take an
objective and positive approach concerning the
complaints of woman and child, as their
patients, who have been in contact with these
chemical pollutions. The so-called "review" of
the already existing research material, often
fraudulent results are based, is not sufficient.
But it is precisely that this, in our countries, is
the Foundation on which admission and use of
silicone implants is based.
Doctors have a duty of care for the patient,
even when they can harm themselves or
colleagues with it.
Ethics is a fundamental principle
of the medical training, treat
your patients to these ethics!.
