Dumb choice. If you don't have cancer why rip your breasts off? That is why you go for mammagrams. Doctors don't have enought evidence yet on the Brac1 gene. I read reports where doctors are overstating the risks and scaring women. Taking care of yourself by eating good and excercising is the most important thing to prevent breast cancer. Jolie wants a guarantee she will live to 100 then why do you do dangerous stunts that could kill you in your movies? She makes no sense! If you were to get it early you could then have this done why do this now. Your mother could of had other risk factors. Did she drink 3 cups of coffee a day. Did she have a bad diet? Was she overweight? Did she take birth control years ago. Did she not excercise. These are risk factors that could have been added to the reason she got cancer young. If Jolie did not get cancer why jump to a conclusion before it happens.

Some doctors are corrupt. Another way to make money off of a star. Look at all the plastic surgery she has had and guess what there was a risk factor she could of died on the operating table with all those surgeries. Total nonesense here! Again she sends a terrible message to women all over the world.

Exactly. And look at how people with money and fame follow trend like this. Statistics not in context or from on nuniform data can also give false statistics. Poor data/statistics would lead to a flawed analysis.

When you hear family history you must remember family especially dead or older family are from a different era/s. Meaning they might very well have grown up in a toxic enviorment or just the massive amount of nuclear bomb testing during the cold war could've made cancers more prevelent. Do these statisticians take things like that into account?
