Double Mastectomy reduces Angelina Jolie’s risk of breast cancer by as much as 82%.

News has just emerged about the Iconic Beauty Hollywood Star Angelina Jolie, undergoing a double mastectomy as a preventative to breast cancer due to her recent acquired knowledge of a defective gene.

Certain genes such as BRCA1 and BRCA2 are strongly linked with breast cancer and can be detected with genetic tests. BRCA stands for breast cancer susceptibility genes, a class of genes known as tumor suppressors, according to the National Cancer Institute.

Mrs Jolie caries the BRCA1 gene which gives her a high chance of developing the life threatening disease. Added with her family history, Angelina Jolie’s doctor estimated her risk of developing the disease to be a considerable 85% possibility. Ms Jolie said “I decided to be proactive and to minimise the risk as much I could,”

The star came out about her position hoping to help other women in the same situation. “For any woman reading this, I hope it helps you to know you have options,” Ms Jolie went on to say.

“I want to encourage every woman, especially if you have a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, to seek out the information and medical experts who can help you through this aspect of your life, and to make your own informed choices.”

It only makes sense to take necessary steps for survival, especially as a mother of six children and having her own mother pass at the age of 56 from ovarian cancer.

Angelina Jolie had both breasts removed and replaced with implants.

The star has praised her partner, Brad Pitt, for his love and support throughout the procedure, and said she was reassured that her children had found nothing in the results “that makes them uncomfortable”.

Reports state, her chances of developing breast cancer have now dropped from 87% to under 5%, she said.

Angelina Jolie stated “I feel empowered that I made a strong choice that in no way diminishes my femininity,” she said.

The Technology is there and if we can utilise it to enhance lives, or give mothers a chance to live to a reasonable age enabling them to rare their children, why not?

Not only does this procedure save the lives of mothers but can also enhance their emotional wellbeing, and doesn’t a healthy and emotionally stable mother make a significantly better one.

Using medical technologies for the better of humanity.

Jess

As a mother of three boys, wife and fitness instructor Jessica Fryer well understands the challenge of keeping a balanced life. “I was eighteen when I first went in search for a larger understanding of existence. “I came from a very unhealthy family. I was unhappy, over weight and sick. It was Louise L Hay’s book You Can Heal Your Life, which sparked a profound desire to first help myself to overcome these issues and then help others to do the same”. Jessica went on to research the mind body, spirit connection evaluating hundreds of scientific concepts, religions, phycology and counselling philosophies as well as physical and nutritional theories. “ I came to understand that our ultimate goal to be happy only derives from a healthy mind, body and spirit and through achieving our desires, which can be very different for everyone”. After many years of shaping herself and her future Jessica has developed a holistic approach to health and fitness which takes into account all levels of the self as well as the times we currently live in. She pulls from her life experiences and applied knowledge of expertise which donates a powerful leader. Jessica now lives in the renowned beauty of Byron Bay, Australia and promotes her gentle yet effective approach in guiding people to live, think and be healthy whilst achieving their true innate desires.
