(NaturalNews) Most American women who find out they have cancer are confronted by their doctors with three choices for treatment, which include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, all of which greatly increase the chance they will never again be able to procreate. Yet, rarely does any doctor offer those women the fourth choice of treatment, which does not endanger their fertility whatsoever, and does not even require taking medication.
To find out which women received this limited advice and were not discriminated against for age, race or social status, Mitchell Rosen, MD of University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), led a team that surveyed over 1,000 women between the ages of 18 and 40 years who were diagnosed with either leukemia, Hodgkin's, breast cancer or gastrointestinal cancer. The women were randomly sampled from 1993 until 2007. Over 900 of them were treated with therapies that could make them infertile forever, including chemo, pelvic radiation, pelvic surgery, or bone marrow transplants. Only 60 percent received counseling about infertility, and less than 10 percent pursued preservation.
The study revealed that women who are Caucasian and graduated from college are more likely to be counseled about the risks of infertility and the choices for preservation. One "reason" for the bias was that "socio-demographic health disparities likely affect access to fertility preservation services."
The fourth, rarely mentioned choice
Of course, since the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), the CDC (Center for Disease Control), the AMA (American Medical Association), and the ACS (American Cancer Society) are in the business of making a fortune off of women with cancer, Allopathic doctors under this "chronic care" umbrella are not educated about nor instructed to give advice to women regarding natural remedies for cancer.
The fourth, rarely mentioned choice for women who are fighting cancer and who would like to keep their reproductive ability in tact includes a combination of medicinal mushrooms (reishi, cordiceps, maitaki and shiitake), juicing raw organic vegetables, taking vitamins, mineral supplements, antioxidants, amino acids, probiotics and superfoods.

None of these powerful sources for cancer prevention and cure are even mentioned as a choice, and none of them have side effects or endanger fertility capabilities. Mostly because these choices are inexpensive and non-patentable, Western Medicine writes them off as alternative medicine and keeps the general public in the dark. Women who cut chemicals out of their diet are also more likely to recover from cancer, including avoiding all artificial sweeteners, fluoridated water, processed foods and especially non-organic meat and dairy products.
