Lower Cancer Risk with Mushrooms

Lower Cancer Risk with Mushrooms

Lower Cancer Risk with Mushrooms | Just one a day will do it

Over the years research has shown that several foods, vegetables in particular, have cancer protective benefits.  For example, fruits and veggies—specifically celery for breast cancer, pineapples and bananas for colon cancer,  strawberries for esophageal cancer, colon and prostate cancers even  avocadoes against oral cancer and many, many more. 

Today we’re talking about mushrooms.  They are an immunity powerhouse that activate white blood cells and help fight off inflammation.  They are also a source of ergothioneine, a potent antioxidant amino acid that contribute minimal calories and no saturated fat nor sodium to the diet.  A recent study from Penn State suggests that eating mushrooms daily is associated with a 45% lower risk of cancer, when compared to those who do not eat mushrooms!  They reviewed data from almost 20,000 cancer patients to learn more about the relationship between mushroom and cancer and found that a benefit comes from only 18g daily.  That’s only about 1 medium mushroom!  So doable!  You can easily add that to your eggs, top a salad or sandwich or add to a stir fry! 

For a summer treat check out our Cremini Salad Burgers or Seared Mushroom & Eggplant “Scallops” with Pineapple-Apricot Glaze!!  These scallops are a beautiful vegan entrée or a plant forward appetizer that will be the talk of your next get together!
