Celebrity Sharon Osbourne, wife of the famous Ozzy Osbourne, is the latest victim of a ridiculous mainstream medical trend known as ‘preventative’ body part removal. As I’ve covered in the past, many doctors are now actually recommending that those with ‘faulty’ genes actually remove body parts to avoid the very possibility of contracting cancer. Of course a bounty of powerful research shows that high powered nutrition can literally affect your genetic expression, but it appears that these doctors do not seem to care.
Just like other women who have been convinced by their doctors that their ‘faulty’ genes set them up for a lifetime of cancer suffering, Sharon Osbourne recently endured the 13-hour double masectomy after her physician’s genetic tests revealed that she had ‘inherited a gene fault’ that was thought to increase her risk of breast cancer. According to Osbourne, she felt like there was nothing else she could do to prevent a second case of cancer after previously dealing with colon cancer:
“I’ve had cancer before and I didn’t want to live under that cloud: I decided to just take everything off, and had a double mastectomy.”
The fact that Sharon’s doctors did not tell her about the healing power of nutrition and lifestyle is both heavily disturbing and unfortunate. It is also not an isolated case. As CNN has reported, other women like mother Allison Gilbert have been talked into removing more than just their breasts by their doctors. In order to ‘stay alive for her children’, Gilbert actually removed both her breasts and ovaries despite not testing positive for any form of cancer. Gilbert stated that she did so at the urge of her gynecologist, and felt like there was little choice in the matter.
Doctors Fail to Mention Nutrition Fights Cancer, Dramatically Influences Gene Expression
What the doctors failed to tell Osbourne and Gilbert is that by simply altering their nutritional choices they could have significantly influenced the expression of their genes. This has been demonstrated in numerous instances of scientific research, but the Norwegian University of Science and Technology is one of the latest organizations to highlight the effects. It is important, first, however, to understand how inflammation works within the body. You see inflammation has not only been linked to many of the world’s leading diseases such as cancer and heart disease, but it is actually thought to be at the heart of virtually all chronic disease.
This is important because the information from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology actually explains how nutrition can directly impact the presence of cancer-linked inflammation through altering the very genes that cause inflammation. It can create or eliminate inflammation in the body. By making the right food choices (high quality, nutrition-packed superfoods) you can literally affect the genes that cause inflammation within the body. The lead researcher from the study summarizes:
“This affects not only the genes that cause inflammation in the body, which was what we originally wanted to study, but also genes associated with development of cardiovascular disease, some cancers, dementia, and type 2 diabetes — all the major lifestyle-related diseases.”
It has also been well-documented that antioxidants perform similar functions, with antioxidant-rich foods fighting cancer at a genetic level. Jefferson’s Kimmel Cancer Center researchers explain the findings of their research on this subject:
“Now we have genetic proof that mitochondrial oxidative stress is important for driving tumor growth,” said lead researcher Michael P. Lisanti, M.D., Ph.D.
When it comes down to it, many doctors are stuck in the ‘old paradigm’ of medicine and fail to discuss with patients the reality of transforming their health without resorting to ridiculous procedures like preventative body part removal. The fact that celebrities are now partaking in this process and the media is running with it as a valiant and intelligent thing to do will only further propel the prevalence of this procedure to new limits.
To be clear, I do not think that Sharon Osbourne means any harm to anyone personally and was genuinely driven to have this procedure thanks to her doctors terrifying her into the decision. In fact, I only wish that Osbourne would have been educated as to the powerful benefits of nutrition and lifestyle before she was driven to make the decision. Had she gone public with such an inspiring story, it would have actually led millions around the globe to find the information for themselves.
