      Trace amounts of several things have been measured.   I am sure you can 
get a list for the asking on alt.support.breast-implant.     In any case,  the 
amounts are so low that there is no significant toxic hazard.   Remember the 
toxicologist mantra---  " The exposure is much more important than the agent".
