    Why do people care what star gets her breasts removed?

    Why is this everywhere today? It's not like this is teaching or helping average people anything because average people don't have the money to do this. So why should anyone care and why is it taking up the news???

    Hi peeples.....I thought you might find this info a bit reassuring.......What Angelina had done.....going through genetic testing, based on strong family history and the surgeries that follow, due to the significant results...ARE, in most all cases, covered by 98% of medical insurances.  Just as anything else, there are exceptions, but I do know, that this particular, approved, preventive type procedure, is covered the same as any surgical procedures, medically advised by physicians.
    My niece(sister's dghtr) went through the first part....blood work and testing for BRAC1, because her maternal grandmother (mother of my sister & I)....and my sister....were both diagnosed with breast cancer before age 50....my sister ultimately succumbing to it's spread, in 6 year's time. 
    Huge sigh of relief, it was not necessary for my niece to go any further, since she did not carry the mutation.
    I believe it's in this regard, that it is appreciated by the medical professionals in Women's Health, that a HIGH profile person like Jolie, goes public with her decision, which has repeatedly proven to save thousands of lives.  For a change, this is not a privilege for the very wealthy, only.

      Cancer establishment tell lies. We have cures for cancer that work upwards of 90%. Chemo and radiation both cause cancer with success <25%. Cancer does NOT come from genetics. It comes from industrial poisons.

    We do have larger problems in society certainly, but I have a great deal of respect for Angelina Jolie in doing this for a few reasons.
    First of all she is a female celebrity and female celebs are notoriously talked about for their looks etc. - especially her.  Her talking openly about a double mastectomy can be a huge deal for other women who go through tough feelings about losing their femininity etc. when having those types of surgeries.

    Also, she has brought more awareness to the testing for the gene mutation that causes a 60% increased risk for breast and even ovarian cancers.  Nothing bad comes from that.  Women who may not have considered that option before can now look into it and see if their insurance can cover the test.  Even if people can't afford the mastectomy, simply knowing they have that genetic marker may help them make other better health choices and help themselves in other ways.

    I don't care for celeb gossip and such, but I give props to Angelina for this. I think it was a brave thing to speak up about and couldn't have been an easy decision.

      Perhaps not easy, but dumb! Chance of arm cancer, lop off your perfectly good arms? Dumb! We have cancer cures, but big business helped to "outlaw" them in the US. Jeopardized profits.

    I've lost all respect for Angelina Jolie.

    If there is a chance of getting lung cancer, would she cut out her lungs? How about her legs or her arms? Perfectly healthy -- just lop them off. Perfectly dumb! She is spreading the globalist agenda one piece at a time. Perfectly psychotic.

    Perhaps she should lop off her head; her brain isn't working too well.

    Cancer does not come from genetics. It comes from the poisons promoted by Rockefeller and his ilk -- petrochemical garbage that pollutes the body. You can be genetically more sensitive to those poisons, but it's the poisons that stimulate cancer. Just look at a map of cancer by nation -- every nation that is Westernized with food, packaging, cosmetics, suntan lotion, preservatives, hormones in livestock, GMOs and the like, all have high per capita incidences of cancer. The rich nations that are not aligned with the West (e.g. Arab countries) have very low per capita incidences of cancer.

    America has had several cancer cures. At least 2 of them, the establishment offered a million dollars to buy, but were refused when they admitted that they would not offer the cures for free as their originators had wanted. Cancer is big business with big profits. Cures are anathema to their business model. And Angelina Jolie is playing right into their bottom line.

      I think I pretty much agree with what you said with the caveat that cancer was common before the Industrial Age.
