Surgeon and historian Jack C. Fisher sits down with Dr. David Granet to discuss the controversial history of silicone medical devices - including breast implants. Though the fear surrounding their usage was unwarranted and not based in scientific fact, battles waged about their safety and government regulation followed suit. Dr. Fisher argues that regulatory policy should rely on valid science and not on the fear of risk. Recorded on 04/17/2015. (#29534)
