On Thursday, France became the first nation in the world to ban certain types of breast implants which have been linked to a rare form of cancer. The ANSM said that the ban has come as a safety measure keeping in mind that it is rare but dangerous. The risk is linked to anaplastic large-cell lymphoma, which is a rare type of cancer which attacks the immune system. 59 cases of cancer among French implant wearers were recorded.
