Christina Applegate 'Worried' About Daughter's Health After Undergoing Surgeries

Christina Applegate 'Worried' About Daughter's Health After Undergoing Surgeries”

She does this to reduce the amount of pesticides, fertilizers and other harmful chemicals she puts in her body, as this has been shown to reduce one's chances of developing cancer. The illness recurred several years later.

She understands, however, that not everyone has the same options as she and her daughter do, especially when there is so much going on in the world but for as long as she's able to do something about her family's health, she will press on.

Applegate and her husband, Martyn LeNoble, grow their own vegetables to make sure that they are eating clean and healthy foods. Her six-year-old daughter Sadie could inherit the mutation. The "Up All Night" star also revealed that they are 100 percent organic at home.

"If you're BRCA positive, it's highly possible you'll develop cancer in your lifetime", Applegate told "Today".

She added: 'I'm doing everything I can on my end knowing that in 20 years, she'll have to start getting tested. "To me it breaks the heart to think that there is a possibility for it to be affected", she concluded. "My daughter is a vegetarian and practically vegan".

She had to make the best choice to avoid cancer and that meant having the surgery. We're really conscious about what we buy. "But just get a tomato plant!"

Applegate also advocated for women to lower their stress levels, calling it a "big killer". But the actress acknowledged that it could be very hard to do.

Applegate, 45, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and underwent a double mastectomy that same year to become cancer-free.

"You're the first person I'm telling this", says Applegate in the candid interview. "I'm not anymore. I try to find the lining in everything in life". Pictured: Applegate attends the premiere of STX Entertainment's "Bad Moms" at Mann Village Theatre on July 26, 2016 in Westwood, California.
