Who would have thought some mushrooms could provide health benefits? Research conducted by Min Zhang, School of Population Health University of Western Australia about the positive effects of eating mushrooms in China for women, shows that they do. You can buy mushrooms online in this site.

Current Research

Zhang from Zhejiang University in China and The University of Western Australia did joint research to find that green tea and mushrooms could protect against breast carcinoma. Zhang reported that breast carcinoma was the most common form of cancer among women around the globe and that its incidence was rising in both developed and emerging countries. In China, however, the rate of cancer was four to five times less than in developed countries. The study wanted to see if this could have been due to the traditional Chinese diet which includes both fresh and dried mushroom and green tea. Research has shown that mushrooms, mushroom extracts and green-tea have anti-carcinogenic qualities which can stimulate the immune system to fight breast cancer.

Monitored was the intake of mushrooms and green-tea by 2,000 women from the relatively wealthy southeast China. Half the women were healthy while others had breast cancer. It was revealed that Agaricus bisporus fresh white button mushrooms and Lentinula, a fragrant dried mushroom, were the most frequently consumed species of mushroom. One group of women studied did not consume mushrooms or green tea, while others consumed both.

The results of the study revealed that mushrooms and green tea combined had a decrease in breast cancer risk. They also had a positive effect on malignance. Zhang concluded that the inexpensive dietary treatment may offer protection against breast-cancer development if it is consistent with other research.
