    That’s a LOT to consider. Interesting how the Netherlands and U.S. both have a high percentage of testing, whereas Israel, whose cancer incidence numbers fall between them, has barely nothing. There needs to be an established program for women at risk without the hype and hysteria. Young women shouldn’t be literally dying to have children.
