A Quick Addition on BRCA 1 & 2 Genes

Read this article as it so eloquently puts the cost inefficiencies of one company, Myriad, owning the patent to our genes! What? Yes, they are currently the holders of the patent to the BRCA 1 & 2 genes and this is why I had to pay $3500 for my genetic testing! It is outrageous when so many companies are out there trying to, but being stopped by Myriad with the help of the courts, create a $30-40 option!!! I believe we have reached a whole new level of insanity with big Pharma. Get Myriad off the books and allow this patent to be cancelled so all women can be tested and given a sigh of relief or be able to use the facts to make informed decisions!
Get this information out there folks! It’s truly worth sharing to the masses!
