Breast Implant Health Scare

Breast Implant Health Scare

The founder of a French company that makes breast implants linked to a health scare was charged Friday with involuntary injury. Jean-Claude Mas, founder of Poly Implant Protheses, or PIP, has been released but is under judicial control, meaning he cannot leave France.  He has not been charged with the more serious offense of involuntary manslaughter.

PIP implants have sparked health scares in Europe and South America. A French attorney representing women with implants welcomed the arrest, but said it could have come sooner. The company has been under investigation since 2011.

Atika Shubert and her producer Saskya went around Southern France to investigate what is going on with PIP and how this all could've happened.

We also spoke to Dr. Grant Stevens, a plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, who talks about the problems he's had with PIP breast implants and how to keep yourself safe.

Journey inside Japan's nuclear exclusion zone

It's a grim reminder of Japan's tragedy. Signs warning people to "Keep Out," "Don't Enter," and to avoid the 20 kilometer exclusion zone around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

78,000 people lived there. Now, they're all gone after they were forced to leave because of dangerous radiation coming from the crippled nuclear plant.

Radiation levels have gradually decreased since the earthquake and tsunami in March of 2011, but they're still too high for any prolonged human exposure.

CNN's Kyung Lah shows us what precautions people have to take before going into the exclusion zone.
