gene variant related to fibroids discovered

A new study has discovered a gene variant that is related to the risk of developing fibroids.

This confirms some of what has been discussed in this blog before, about genetic factors being part of what causes fibroids.

I don't know why someone would want to be tested for this gene though -- it's not as if western science currently has anything to tell us about what to do if we are found to have a genetic disposition. Why don't they spend some of this research money to look for a preventative and a cure?
