Most of you know that polypropylene is generally used to make mesh, that is a petroleum-based plastic that many experts have warned is not biocompatible, especially when you consider the treatment it receives.
The Petition says: “The use of TVT Slings and Surgical Mesh are inhuman and ruining the lives of entire families. These products were put on the market without proper testing and are dangerous in many ways. First off the chemical make up of the mesh is toxic to the human body. There are many studies to back this in fact the EPA has banned it from being used in fish tanks so what makes it OK to implant it into the human body? The Mesh is sharp, it shrinks, the chemicals in it are poison. The FDA has put out several warnings but its still being used. and ruining more lives daily. We need our government to act responsibly and step in where the FDA and Pharmaceutical companies have failed us and put the dollar ahead of peoples lives. We at TVTNO.org have been begging and pleading for several years.”
