Breast cancer gene SCANDAL: Half the women who undergo mastectomies found to have harmless gene variant, NOT cancer

(Natural News) Half of American women who undergo bilateral mastectomy after genetic testing for breast cancer do not carry cancer-causing genes at all, a study revealed. The number of women undergoing preventive mastectomy reached exponential proportions following Angelina Jolie’s highly-publicized decision to remove both of her breasts in 2013. According to health professionals, millions have already taken genetic testing. Surgeons have also noticed an uptick in women with newly-diagnosed breast cancer who proceed with mastectomy following genetic testing.
