Breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)

​The FDA has updated its web content about breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) based on several advances in the description of the disease and treatment recommendations. The FDA concurs with the World Health Organization that BIA-ALCL is a rare T-cell lymphoma that can develop following breast implants. At this time, most data suggest that BIA-ALCL occurs more frequently following implantation of breast implants with textured surfaces rather than those with smooth surfaces.

Urban Myth Proven: Go Ahead and Eat That Food off the Floor

Food that has been dropped on the floor is usually OK to eat under the “five-second rule,” a scientist says. That you can safely eat items that have fallen onto the ground within five seconds has often been dismissed as an urban myth. But germ expert Professor Anthony Hilton, from Aston University, said that although retrieving these morsels can never be completely without risk, there is little to be concerned about if the food is there only momentarily.

Obviously, food covered in visible dirt shouldn’t be eaten, but as long as it’s not obviously contaminated, the science shows that food is unlikely to have picked up harmful bacteria from a few seconds spent on an indoor floor.
