Along with all of us, the planet is not getting any younger and the constant assaults on the air, water and soil are rapidly taking their toll!

Whether we carry the BRCA1 gene mutation or not, we can all learn from Jolie’s thoughtful, proactive approach. …read more of Taking the ‘Angelina Jolie Effect’ a Step Further to Prevent Cancer here
