Ger­man court: Breast im­plants no hin­drance to po­lice work

Kuwait Times - - HEALTH & SCIENCE -

A Ger­man court has ruled breast im­plants are no im­ped­i­ment to a woman be­com­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer. The rul­ing by the ad­min­is­tra­tive court in the west­ern city of Gelsenkirchen Wed­nes­day came af­ter a 32-year-old woman ap­pealed a po­lice doc­tor’s as­sess­ment that her sil­i­cone im­plants were likely to rup­ture dur­ing phys­i­cally de­mand­ing law-en­force­ment work.

But the court heard ex­pert tes­ti­mony there was less than a 20 per­cent risk of an im­plant rip­ping or other painful prob­lems, the dpa news agency re­ported. Na­tion­wide po­lice guid­ance says women with im­plants are not suited for po­lice duty be­cause of the in­jury risk, but other courts have also ruled oth­er­wise. — AP
