Angelina Jolie, known for being fiercely private, has made a very personal disclosure. The Oscar-winning (REALLY?!?) actress reveals in an emotional op-ed for the New York Times that she underwent a double mastectomy earlier this year after a blood test showed she was genetically susceptible to cancer.

“The truth is I carry a ‘faulty’ gene, BRCA1, which sharply increases my risk of developing breast cancer and ovarian cancer,” she writes. “Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy”. [1]

Nice advertising trick for gene medicine. The era of gene-terrorism is here. From now on we will not get surgery for diseases we have, but for diseases that we MIGHT have in the future! Full moneY… errrr I meant “prevention”!
