Image result for WOMEN say breast implants cause illnesses
GOOD THURSDAY!!!

LADIES;

At any time within the past 24 hours have YOU taken any time for yourself to Take Off Your Bra?

Are YOU still wearing your bra 24/7/365?

When in the comfort/privacy of your own home, are YOU able to Take Off Your Bra?

At least when you go to sleep for the night, are YOU able to Take Off Your Bra?

When you MUST wear bra, do YOU generally wear a properly-fitting bra>

When was the last time YOU attended a Professional Bra-Fitting Event?

If YOU are 40 years of age or older, have YOU scheduled your annual MAMMOGRAM?

If YOU are 25 or older, do you practice monthly BREAST SELF-EXAMINATIONS?

If YOU are 20 or older, do you practice BREAST MASSAGE?

Are YOU aware of any Family Medical History of BREAST CANCER, or; ANY type of cancer?

When was your last conversation with your physician about your Family Medical History?

Have YOU ever, or; are you NOW considering getting BREAST IMPLANTS?

If YOU are unsure about the answers to ANY of the above questions, and; you are in the comfort/privacy of your home, then NOW would probably be a good time for you to TAKE OFF YOUR BRA.

 Meet SHERRY JENKINS, TIA SEVERINO, and AMY HANEY, three Metro Atlanta women who had previously never met, but; soon discovered they had a lot uncommon.

They are among the thousands of women who suffer achy joints, exhaustion, memory lapses,and more. Spending countless hours and dollars on countless doctors, they always seemed to arrive at a frustrating head end.

Discovering the Facebook group HEALING BREAST IMPANT ILLNESS had them to realize it might have been their Breast Implants that were making them ill.

ABC2 ATLANTA reports AMY HANEY said;
“I mean I was in bed getting up to go pick my kids up from school and then laying back down because I was so exhausted."

SHERRY JENKINS said;
“I couldn’t even lift a gallon of milk, couldn’t walk. The pain was unbearable."

TIA SEVERING said;
“It was joint pain, just bizarre joint pain like in my extremities and not being able to function."

All three ladies have had their breast implants removed. 

Breast implant illness advocates say there are more than twenty symptoms, including fatigue, numbness, anxiety, depression and panic attacks. Some women feel like they’re dying. 


The Food and Drug Administration ordered a moratorium on silicone breast implants in 1992 due to safety concerns, but after more studies the FDA allowed them in 2006.
A lawsuit filed in California in February of 2017 alleges that some silicone implants sold by JOHNSON & JONSON: MENTOR are defective and cause health problems for some women.
MENTOR stands by the safety of their silicone implants.  
MENTOR said via a statement;
"At Mentor, we are guided by patient safety and science, and patients can be assured that the science and long-term data from multiple clinical studies, including two 10-year, prospective clinical trials, support the safety and efficacy of our FDA-approved breast implant products that have been chosen by surgeons for millions of women worldwide. We adhere to the highest standards of quality and closely monitor the performance of our products. We also continue to support ongoing clinical studies and share updated product safety information with surgeons in our product labeling and with patients in brochures and online as appropriate. The totality of the data and scientific literature continue to support the safety of Mentor’s silicone breast implants, and we are defending against the allegations in the lawsuit you referenced."
BREAST IMPLANT ILLNESS is hard to track. Many women who have symptoms don’t report them to their surgeon because they don’t realize they might be connected to their implants. Researchers want to create a national breast implant registry to track that type of information. 
Amy Haney said;
“I’ve been six months since my surgery and I am ripping carpet on my stairs and pressure washing my driveway and doing things that I couldn’t even dream of doing,” 

Sherry Jenkins said;
“I’m so happy that I did because I have my life back now,”

Tia Severino said;
“I saw a dramatic difference, within 24 hours for me. It was very dramatic,”

The HEALING BREAST IMPLANT ILLNESS Facebook group has more than 23,000 members and the organizer says 90 percent of them have symptoms


LADIES;

BEFORE going forward with ANY type of surgical procedure, and especially; any type of COSMETIC SURGERY procedure, PLEASE double-check with your Primary Care Physician and do extensive research on potential side effects.

Please. Thank You. You're Welcome.


PEACE, LOVE, And BOUNTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BRALESS THURSDAY BLESSINGS;

Are YOU ready for love, drama, hilarity, and shenanigans from the premiere of GROWING UP HIP HOP: SEASON 4???


GROWING UP HIP HOP - SEASON 4:

The next generation of hip hop royalty sets out to do whatever it takes to rise above their legendary parent’s shadow. As they reach new heights to build their empires, not all thrones are protected when everything come crashing down around the them. 

After having a baby out of wedlock, Angela Simmons (Rev Run’s daughter), opens up for the first time about a devastating breakup and facing public scrutiny. Vanessa Simmons yearns to be closer to her sister, Angela, but new business opportunities lead to a dramatic sibling rivalry. Romeo Miller (Master P’s son) finds himself chasing after the ‘one that got away’ and running to New Orleans with his pops to save an incarcerated family member who goes on a hunger strike! 

Meanwhile, Damon “Boogie” Dash’s (Damon Dash’s son) addiction spirals out of control when his little sister’s life becomes endangered. Briana Latrise (Mary J. Blige’s stepdaughter) teams up with Dame to save Boogie’s life and plot a surprise intervention. With her checkered family history, Kristinia DeBarge (James DeBarge’s daughter) musters the courage to meet with her long-lost cousin Kyndall Ferguson (El DeBarge’s daughter) while she plans a life changing move to Vegas to further her music career. Tyran Moore (Sandra “Pepa” Denton’s son) comes to visit his mother to mend broken ties, and unleashes years of pent up resentment growing up under her fame in family therapy. Egypt Criss (Pepa Denton’s daughter) has a new beau, but not everyone trusts his intentions with the princess of hip hop, including Egypt’s cousin, Tahira “Tee Tee” Francis. 

A shotgun wedding in Vegas shocks all!

PAPER MAG: 42 On-Air JOURNALISTS Talk WORKING The AGE Of FAKE NEWS!!!



ANNE-MARIE GREEN - CBS, CBSN


The investigatively-curious folks at PAPER Magazine  recently spoke with 42 current On-Air Journalists to have them to give take on delivering the news in this current era of Fake News!!!


Here are a few interview interludes from some of our favorite CCG Justified Journalists:


"'The Media' is the people. We question authority on behalf of the people. We ask, 'who is responsible? How did this happen? Where do we go from here?' We do this because most people can't hold the powerful accountable. Most people have lives they are building and people they love to spend time with. So the media does it. The attacks on the media and the phrase 'Fake News' drive a wedge between the media and the people who we serve. But when you split a thing in two there is bound to be some damage. You can't undermine the media without undermining the people and thus the country. All I can do to bolster trust is be as transparent as possible. I don't mind saying when I don't have information or am coming up short on facts. I don't mind telling the audience that there are limits to my ability to tell a story. If the audience understands the challenges we face as news people then they can better understand why we deliver the news the way we do." — Anne-Marie GreenCBSN anchor and CBS News correspondent


"The pace is whiplash. It can change from the time you leave your house to the time you get to your job... We're no longer 24/7 with 24 hours — it's 24 seconds." — Gayle King, Co-host of CBS This Morning



GAYLE KING - CBS




DON LEMON - CNN


"I must do way more fact checking of guests and subjects since Trump entered the political arena." — Don Lemon, Host of CNN Tonight with Don Lemon


"[There is now an] expectation that we will offer an opinion, a bias, on-air. People will often stop me and say — and they mean this as a compliment and I take it as such — 'Wow, I watch you and I can't tell if you're a Republican or a Democrat.' I always kind of smile, like, 'Alright.' I don't think of that when I do my job as a journalist but that, to me, is a symptom of this changing audience perception of what television news is about." -- Lester Holt, News anchor for the weekday edition of NBC Nightly News and Dateline NBC



LESTER HOLT - NBC




HARRIS FAULKNER - FNC

"Something that I've never seen before now is that when you report something, a lot of times people are filtering the facts through the lens of how they see things politically. For example, if I report that there are 7,000 people in an immigrant caravan, hundreds of miles away from our U.S. border, and the President is sending troops, and the caravan has people in it who we have not vetted and don't know, those are static facts. Many people right now are filtering those facts through the lens of 'I'm voting this way or I'm voting that way.' I feel like sometimes they don't even hear some of the facts, because those facts don't fit the idea of what they think the story should be." — Harris Faulkner, Anchor of Outnumbered Overtime with Harris Faulkner and co-anchor of Outnumbered on FNC


"The source of information is not just us or other journalists -- you now have citizens who can be the primary source of information. That was especially true with Black Lives Matter. You're finding out that this person has died because they're trending [on Twitter] and because people are putting up their own photos or their own information. We're not the gatekeeper anymore." — Joy Reid, Host of AM Joy on MSNBC and political analyst for MSNBC




JOY REID - MSNBC





GEOFF BENNETT - NBC





TRYMAINE LEE - MSNBC



"Words still have consequences and truth still matters." — Geoff BennettNBC News White House correspondent

"[Twitter] became such a critical part of telling [the story of what happened to Michael Brown] and it was the first time that organizers were fully organizing online, that people were coordinating on the ground using social media. You see the DeRay Mckessons of the world emerge from this landscape and I think that was a pivot point, especially for those journalists such as myself who make our money on the ground, telling the story, taking you to the where the story is actually happening... that changed everything for me." — Trymaine Lee, MSNBC correspondent


"We carry the truth and for people who don't want the truth out there... they find us to be dangerous." — Vladimir Duthiers, CBSN anchor and CBS News correspondent

LANE BRYANT & CACIQUE Throw BIG BOOTY CLAPS BACK At VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW - #WEAREALLTHEFANTASY!!!


Image result for #WEAREALLTHEFANTASY
About 18 years ago, international plus-size brands LANE BRYANT and LANE BRYANT CACIQUE parted ways with international traditional-sizes lingerie titan VICTORIA'S SECRET!!!

The 2018 VICTORIA'S SECRET FASHION SHOW aired Sunday night, December 2, on ABC, and if you know the brand, then YOU DO KNOW that VICTORIA'S SECRET traditionally does NOT feature PLUS SIZE MODELS at their annual winter lingerie extravaganza.

In response to their lack of inclusivity, on the same day as the 2018 VSFS broadcast, LANE BRYANT and CACIQUE dropped a video for their campaign that celebrates what VS has been missing.

#WEAREALLTHEFANTASY seeks to celebrate the femininity of all women of all sizes, and to have all women to create their own fantasies for themselves.

MARCY SHAFFIR is EVP/GMM of Cacique Intimates.

REFINERY29 reports MARCY SHAFFIR said through a statement;
“Our hope is that the millions of modern women who share our same core beliefs of inclusivity, body positivity and female empowerment will join us in our commitment to celebrating women of all shapes and sizes. We feel proud and privileged to play a small part in paving the way for a more inclusive world for generations of women to come.”
