reveals that the so-called
breast cancer susceptibility genes - BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 -
do not, in fact, cause breast cancer.
Jolie's prophylactic mastectomy, for instance,
was for naught.
A new Lancet Oncology study, reported widely in the mainstream media, confirms that the so-called "breast cancer genes," i.e. BRCA1/2, do not have the power to determine breast cancer survival outcomes, as widely believed by the medical profession.
The Lancet study titled, "Germline BRCA Mutation and Outcome in Young-onset Breast Cancer (POSH) - A Prospective cohort Study," found,
The BBC broke down the study's findings in greater detail, in their online article titled, "Breast cancer survival 'unaffected by faulty gene'."
The study has powerful implications for the future of breast screening programs and the standard of care for ‘breast cancer’ patients.
So powerful is the belief that BRCA genes 'cause' breast cancer, that millions around the world consider it fact.
Celebrities like Angelina Jolie have added fuel to the fire of this dangerous myth, by electing to have her breasts removed 'prophylactically' due to her BRCA status and the recommendations of her physicians.
I elaborated further on the topic in an article titled, "Pinkwashing Hell - Breast Removal as a Form of 'Prevention'."
In the excerpt below from the Discussion portion of the new Lancet Oncology paper, researchers not only failed to find a causal link between the BRCA genes and overall breast cancer survival, but noted that some BRCA mutation carriers (diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer) may actually have improved survival relative to non-mutation carriers:
While this finding may be surprising to those who have been led to believe that the BRCA gene 'mutation' status is 'a death sentence,' we have spent the past few years debunking this misinformation by looking at the non-industry funded evidence itself.
Millions of women have already been needlessly traumatized by over-diagnosis and overtreatment of non-cancerous, indolent growths of epithelial origin such as ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS).
The "BRCA gene causes breast cancer" meme is another example of a mythical entity which has brought significant harm to women in the name of 'saving their lives.'
It has been leveraged by private and governmental interests alike to corral populations into cancer screening programs, whose results have often run contrary to their stated objectives of preventing suffering.
