Author points out critical statistics. Less than 10% of breast cancers have to do with the gene BRCA1. Also points out that 99% of women don't have the BRCA1 gene.

Point is there is a good chance of over treatment or un-necessary treatment.

Also, personally with American medicine in general is that these so called specialists and statisticians don't put statistics into proper perspective.

First thing to ask or remember is where are these statistics from: The American medical system? Europe? Not only WHERE those statistics came from but WHEN those statistics are from. WHEN...

WHEN statistics are taken from raw data is critical to any study because WHEN could show cause. If many of these statistics were taken from the Cold War Era or from people who were born or lived early in the Cold War especially that could show cause ie nuclear bomb testing and less advanced radiation safety and knowledge for starters. I know people who were X ray technicians in the 1950s and 60s and swore their thyroid problems and numerous cancers were from radiation especially after they saw the advances and changes in radiation safety.

Most medical statistics come from less than 100 years of data with alot of changes in the enviorment, technology AND medical techniques in general. Do 2-3 generations of medical data really show the true history or potential of the family gene pool?

I have other problems with the use of genetics for medicine, profit or to predict outcomes in general in that it's a borderline form of eugenics. Along with being less than the science many believe.

It's Ms Jolie's body she can do as she pleases but when she goes public she knows her personal decision will affect others and sway opinion more than a non celebrity.

Some people are immune from breast and ovarian cancer? In fact there are very few people suffer from breast and ovarian cancer in China, Japan, Korea, and Philippine? So many East Asians are immune, because they do not have BRAC-1 mutation genes! This all done to Darwinism Theory of selection of species and survival of fittest!

Most Asian cultures haven't been exposed to many of the enviormental toxins and pollutants multiple generations of the same American family has. Also lower income societies don't have the disposable income to trash their own body the way an alcoholic or drug addict can. More importantly the American diet is filled with crap and fat. Fat also stores many of the toxins found in the body so even a dieter can trash their body by releasing what ever into their bodies when burning fat. Point being the Asian culture diet is much more consistent and clean if not perfect.

Many of the Asian cultures haven't been exposed to massive industrial pollution until the last couple of decades. Americans have been exposed to industrial waste/enviormental toxins since the late 1800s, enough time for multiple generations of the same family to feel the effects of being directly exposed or indirectly through contaminated/affected ancestory.

After having kids, it probably wasn't a huge love loss since she'll likely end up with a brand new perky rack :)

It is a given that you are one stupid child.
Possibly a mongoloid -which would somehow excuse your retardness-.

And you certainly aren't worthy of my attention ... but, okay ... just this once.
