Christina Applegate recently chose to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed to reduce the risk of cancer. Like Angelina Jolie, who had also chosen the ablation preventive of the ovaries and breasts a few years ago, Christina Applegate said that she was a carrier of the BRCA gene, the same one who is responsible for the hereditary breast and ovarian cancers.
Unfortunately, the gene mutation is hereditary, which means Christina has to be extra cautious with her daughter's health.
Although she was diagnosed with an early stage breast cancer in 2008, Applegate chose a bilateral mastectomy, surgery to remove both breast. I try to keep her stress levels down.
"That's how I've taken control of everything", Applegate, 45, said during the Today interview. It's a relief. That's one thing off the table. "Now, let's hope I don't get hit by a bus", Applegate added.
"If you're BRCA positive, it's highly possible you'll develop cancer in your lifetime", Applegate told "Today". "I'm doing everything I can on my end knowing that in 20 years, she'll have to start getting tested", she shared.
The former Up All Night star says that she grows her own vegetables with Sadie and husband Martyn LeNoble to ensure that they're eating clean foods. This was ultimately what made her decide to undergo double mastectomy, she told "Good Morning America" at that time. The actress is anxious that her 6-year-old daughter, Sadie, might have the same gene as well. Hopefully by then there will be advancements. The "Up All Night" star also revealed that they are 100 percent organic at home.
The surgery decreases women's chances of developing both breast and ovarian cancer, which is the fifth deadliest cancer for women and kills more women than any other gynecologic cancer. My daughter is a vegetarian and practically vegan.
And Applegate sees her oncologist every six months for a checkup - an improvement over her previous visits of every three months. This is how she eats.
Christina Applegate took drastic measures to try to prevent cancer.
