Hispanic women were more likely to have a particular mutation that is also common in Ashkenazi Jews. Spanish ancestry may account for this. The researchers speculate that Sephardic Jews, who settled in Spain, could have shared the mutation with Ashkenazi Jews, who settled in Central and Eastern Europe.

Very interesting I wonder if I can find this in my raw autosomal file? I ran interpretome and Promethease on my file and I came up with breast cancer risks, many of them actually. I'm of Spanish and Sephardic Jewish heritage.
