Angelina Jolie Doubled the Number of British Women Getting Screened for Breast Cancer

It was just announced that Angelina Jolie has single-handedly inspired enough women in England to visit breast cancer clinics for screenings that the number has doubled since she announced her brave double mastectomy last year.

“The Angelina Jolie effect has been long-lasting and global, and appears to have increased referrals to centres appropriately,” a medical team from the University of Manchester told the BBC.

Angelina Jolie stating she has a BRCA1 mutation and going on to have a risk-reducing mastectomy is likely to have had a bigger impact than other celebrity announcements, possibly due to her image as a glamorous and strong woman,” Prof Evans, head of the team, said. “This may have lessened patients’ fears about a loss of sexual identity post-preventative surgery and encouraged those who had not previously engaged with health services to consider genetic testing.”

    It will save many lives.

  • ladyb

    Jared, are you sure you got the headline right? Screening for BRCA1 gene which is the Angeline Effect (and what u want to imply) is not the same as screening for breast cancer.

  • Fercat

    Except for that one person. Her being around, I think the world is better for it.

  • amanda

    I’m sure someone will find some reason to bash her, but there is absolutely nothing to tear her down about in this regard. She is a much better person than I could claim to be. She is a great person to look up to.

  • ummm

    Love her too pieces!! The Angelina Effect is strong!!

  • Joam

    ty jj;)

  • lmao

    But…but….but i thought the hens said Angie is not a good role model? And that nobody pays attention to them anymore? Then BOOM! another slap in their face. Lol.

    She’s an inspiration for millions of women out there and i can see why she has the biggest impact among all the female celebrities out there who campaigns for the same cause, just look at the header photo, she exudes happiness, good health and confidence and she’s still looking very sexy and appealing even after her mastectomy and breast reconstruction. Plus it didn’t stop her from accomplishing great works after the mastectomy such as the global summit for ending sexual violence expo, her Damehood and most of all, it didn’t stop people from seeing her and making her movie become a blockbuster hit. And people’s reaction of the new BTS teaser photos? Angelina looks HOT!

    No wonder the trolls are mad everyday. Aniston exposes her boobies to sell Cake nobody wants it, they didn’t even compliment her breast. Angie is covered up in BTS photos and everybody thought she’s hot!

    SHAME ON YOU IF YOUY ARE A MAN OR A WOMAN EITHER WAY, HAVE YOU NO RESPECT ABOUT THIS CAUSE

  • Cate

    That’s good. Anything that raises awareness & causes people to seek information and help against that horrible disease is a good thing.

  • neer

    I am so happy coz I got my original Maleficent DVD last Sept. 13 at Astrovision (Philippines).

  • Tina

    You know the world has been dumbed down when they believed Angelina Jolie had cancer.

  • groundcontrol

    Only idiots could interpret Jolie’s Op Ed piece to mean she had cancer. Stop insulting women by suggesting they are too stupid to understand what Jolie’s circumstances were and what action she took and why.
    .
    There has been evidence of this for a while now. Nice to see it being confirmed..
    .
    And, yes, screening for the BRCA 1 gene comes under cancer screening.
    .
    When Jolie wrote that Op Ed piece she understood perfectly the issues women deal with when facing the possibility of cancer and/or mastectomies. She faced and illuminated each of those issues in her essay. She knew it would help other women and their families.
    .
    Jolie is simply a uniquely remarkable person.

    hello

  • Anderson.Silly

    Jennifer Aniston has admitted trying Botox injections.

    She said: “Peoplethink that I do a lot of [Botox] injections, but I don’t. I’m not saying that I haven’t tried it but I see how it’s a slippery slope.
