Hurray for all things natural!

Implants may be risky on shuttle flights

Of the 157 people who have paid Virgin Galactic $200,000 for a brief space flight in 2008, those with breast implants may find themselves flat out of luck.

"We've discovered there may well be issues with breast augmentation," he said. "We're not sure whether they could stand the trip -- they could well explode."

Now, I'm skeptical of anything published around this time of year, but should this be true, I wonder if it applies to butt, calf, and bicep implants as well. My guess is that implants aren't a risk unless the cabin depressurizes, and if that happens, they've got more to worry about than exploding boobs.
