I can't even imagine someone having silicone injected into them...anywhere, without it being an "implant"....

These people are simply ignorant. It's a shame, but ignorant people die from doing ignorant things every day.

Is it wrong that my reaction to this headline was laughter? Seriously though, my condolences to the family.

P.S.-Most people look just fine the way they are. Stop looking at super models and actors for definitions on what the perfect body is. They are paid to work out 24/7 and look good. Who in the real world has time to work out all the time? I'm not advocating a unhealthy lifestyle by any means though.

Why don't you post the truth.

She died from complications from the operation, not because of silicone implants.

Autopsy results are still pending, but she is thought to have died from respiratory problems after the operation

Doubt it, silicone is not natural to the body. I am sure her body was rejecting it, like an organ transplant...She probably went into severe shock and inflammation.
(She may have had resp probs from the shock as a direct result from the injection??)

It amazes me what people will do..
Heck, most people know that there are harmful chemicals in meth and they still use it....
Let's not talk about cigarettes!!!!

I'm sorry that she passed away but I think putting yourself into that situation is just stupid.
