(NaturalNews) One of the last things any woman would want to hear is that she may be carrying a gene that commonly leads to breast cancer. But is just the possibility of developing such a cancer worth having both of them removed?

Sharon Osbourne, wife of rocker Ozzie Osbourne and a judge on the reality television show, "America's Got Talent," thought so.

In what British magazine HELLO! described as a "deeply emotional interview," Osbourne said she recently underwent the invasive surgical procedure to reduce her risk of developing the disease after being told by her doctor she was carrying the gene, especially since she already battled colon cancer a decade ago.

"As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought, 'The odds are not in my favor,'" she told the magazine. "I've had cancer before and I didn't want to live under that cloud. I just decided to take everything off, and had a double mastectomy."

The Osbourne clan matriarch, who recently became a grandmother, underwent the 13-hour operation but says she's not sorry about it.

Talked into having the surgery - Even before she had the disease

"For me, it wasn't a big decision, it was a no-brainer," she said. "I didn't want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me. I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother to Pearl (her son Jack's first child)."

Continuing, she said, "I didn't even think of my breasts in a nostalgic way, I just wanted to be able to live my life without that fear all the time. It's not 'pity me', it's a decision I made that's got rid of this weight that I was carrying around."

During the process Osbourne said she found out that breast implants she had before the surgery had leaked into her stomach wall. That, and the rest of the surgical experience as a whole, turned her off any future plastic surgery.

"Sometimes I'll see a photo and I'll think, 'My face looks plastic'; it can look so unnatural from certain angles," she said. "Now I am definitely, definitely done. You can't buy your youth back, no matter how much money you've got I won't be going under the knife again."

Osbourne did not reveal which cancer gene she has but scientists say it is well known that certain harmful mutations of the genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 raise the risk of breast and ovarian cancers.

"Patients with BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations have 50 percent - 85 percent lifetime risk of developing breast cancer and up to approximately 60 percent lifetime risk of ovarian cancer," Karen Brown, the director of the Cancer Genetic Counseling Program at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, told CNN.

No one discusses the natural options - And they are many

What about those women who decide to, as CNN reports, engage in a "preventative mastectomy?" Are they merely being duped into doing so by a medical industry that refuses to offer them viable alternatives?

As we have covered on this site, doctors don't routinely discuss natural alternatives to breast cancer surgery - perhaps because, as pointed out by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, such procedures are high profit.

When writing about actress Christina Applegate's double mastectomy surgery in 2008, Mike noted then that "breast cancer has many natural cures, and none of them require surgery."

In his special report, Breast Cancer Deception, he says "every system of medicine" around the world "has a treatment for breast cancer."

"...[I]f you were to travel the world in search of treatments or cures for breast cancer, you would find hundreds, if not thousands, of such treatments spanning diverse cultures, geographies and medical paradigms," he writes. Read the full report here.
