Christina Applegate has opened up about her decision to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in order to reduce her cancer risk.

The actress - who had a double mastectomy in 2008 after being diagnosed with breast cancer - says that she had the surgery two weeks ago.

Nearly nine years after undergoing a double mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis, the "Anchorman" actress is speaking out about the next steps she's taken to ward off the disease. "Now, let's hope that I don't get hit by a bus", she said. It's a relief. That's one thing off the table.

Admittedly, the Anchorman actress worries about her 6-year-old daughter Sadie.

Christina Applegate prepares only the cleanest food for her family.

She also makes it a point that her child isn't around too many stressors in her environment. "I'm doing everything I can on my end knowing that in 20 years, she'll have to start getting tested", she told Today. Hopefully by then there will be advancements. "It breaks my heart to think that's a possibility", she said. "But just get a tomato plant!"

"We're a 100-percent-organic house". That's her choice. That's how she eats. "My daughter is a vegetarian and practically vegan". We're really conscious about what we buy.

Applegate also advocated for women to lower their stress levels, calling it a "big killer". We're bombarded by what's going on in our world. I used to be a stressed-out person. This was ultimately what made her decide to undergo double mastectomy, she told "Good Morning America" at that time. Applegate founded the non-profit Right Action for Women to provide assistance to those who might not otherwise be able to afford early screenings. I love my life right now.

"We're at this place where we need to sit down and figure out the future of what it is that we're doing and get into more of the BRCA tests for women", she explained. "That's a huge cost for a lot of people who don't have flawless insurance".
