@bella128:   She lost my respect when her aunt, her moms sister,  died of BRCA1-caused breast cancer, and instead of Angelina attending her funeral, she debuted her new boobs at Brad Pitt’s World War Z premiere.  I’m convinced that every thing she does is for publicity,  from adopting third world orphans to messing with one of the hottest actors in the world while he was married,  and then having three biological kids.

My fiance works with some of the top hospitals in the world for cancer research (he does the technilogical part).


The “test” for cancer has been out for about 20 years, but not our for the general public for this reason.  Unnecessary surgery.


Yes, she may be slated for cancer, BUT WHEN???? is the question.  She could have ended up with breast cancer when she was 87 but died of a heart attack at age 80.  So the surgeries were for no reason. 

Also, is she doing ANYTHING ELSE to keep herself cancer free?  just getting rid of tissue is NOT ENOUGH.

She could still get cancer.  Cancer is just a rapid growth of cells.  Just because she has no breasts does not mean she will not get breast cancer in her lymphnodes (which is deadlier than getting it in your breasts)…..

I think it was a bad move and a publicity stunt.  I would not be surprised if we hear she has advanced cancer because of this badly chosen surgery.

This story perfectly summarizes my feelings: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/28/magazine/our-feel-good-war-on-breast-cancer.html?pagewanted=all

I encourage everyone to read it, as it is eye opening and contains a lot of rarely reported facts about breast cancer and awareness. Even if you disagree with the premise of the article, I encourage you to read it to gain awareness and understanding of the a different point of view.

This is a hot topic for me. There’s a lot I could say about it, but I’ll refrain from ranting 😉

I don’t think anything bad can come of an increase in awareness, normality, and acceptance of breast cancer risks and prevention tactics… it’s not a pet issue for me, though, so I could be missing something.

I think more attention by far should be paid to prevention of non-heritable cancer, by avoiding environmental pollution etc.

I think it’s fine Jolie came out with it and it’s being discussed, but AFAIK she smokes like a chimney and eats junk food. I’ve never heard of her caring about her health other than this. Maybe she finally realized that she is only human and mortal after all when her aunt was on her deathbed. I hope she quits smoking and starts thinking about the healthiness of her diet, otherwise chances are, she’s trading one cancer for another.
