Voluntary Mastectomy Is Not Necessary https://drthomaslodi.com/mastectomy-p… Is a voluntary mastectomy necessary as a preventative against getting breast cancer? The answer is no, it is absolutely not needed. In fact, it is an unnecessary mutilation of the body that should never happen. Far too many women are misled and that needs to change. A thorough understanding on the subject and sharing that knowledge with as many people as possible will help spread the word. Let’s go for a minute with the argument that if someone had this certain gene or genetic disposition that made them susceptible to getting breast or ovarian cancer. So, you go ahead and remove your breasts, ovaries and uterus as a result. Now you’re thinking you have safeguarded yourself from breast and ovarian cancer, however, you are now at the same risk for getting pancreatic and colon cancer. And, you can’t remove your pancreas or your colon as you need those to live. BRCA stands for BReast CAncer susceptibility gene. There is a repair mechanism for broken double stranded DNA. All DNA is double stranded. When there is a flawed repair mechanism that is what is called the BRCA gene. We all, both men and women have BRCA genes and some are flawed and some are not. This gene can be inherited from your mother or your father and it can pass to the son or the daughter. There are two chromosomes for every gene so even if you inherit one defective chromosome, the other chromosome still has to have enough toxification to make it a fully defective repair mechanism for double stranded DNA. This is very difficult to do and should not be feared. Even if you removed the body parts we mentioned above, you still have to do what you should have done in the first place, eat healthy, go to sleep early, etc. so that you are not helping to produce cancer. Keep in mind, removing an organ doesn’t mean you are immune from that particular cancer.    • Stop Making Cancer      / @drthomaslodi
