Mushroom Magic – Now Official

Who would have thought that some types of Buy magic mushrooms hold magic health benefits? Research conducted by Research Associate Professor Min Zhang, School of Population Health at the University of Western Australia on the positive effects of eating mushrooms for women in China, proves that they do, The Agaricus family of mushrooms have a special magic, which has largely gone unnoticed, that may give us a healthy high.

Joint research undertaken by Zhang from The University of Western Australia and Zhejiang University in China, found that eating mushrooms and drinking green tea may protect against breast cancer. Zhang reported that breast cancer was the most common type of cancer among women worldwide and that its rate was increasing in both developed and developing countries. Interestingly, the incidence of cancer in China was four or five times lower than in developed countries. The study hoped to show if this could be due to the use of dried and fresh mushrooms and green leaf tea in the traditional Chinese diet. Mushrooms, mushroom extracts and green tea had shown anti-carcinogenic properties which were thought to stimulate immune responsiveness against breast cancer.

The consumption of mushrooms and green tea by 2,000 women, aged from 20 to 87 in relatively affluent southeast China, was monitored. Half of the women were healthy and the others had confirmed breast cancer. On interview, it was found that fresh white button mushrooms, Agaricus bisporus, and fragrant dried mushrooms, Lentinula edodes, were the most commonly eaten species of mushroom. Some of the women in the study consumed neither mushrooms nor green tea while others enjoyed both up to three times a day.

The results of the study showed that the combination of a dietary intake of mushrooms and green tea decreased breast cancer risk with an additional reduced effect on the malignance of cancer. Zhang concluded that, if confirmed consistently in other research, this inexpensive dietary intervention may have potential implications for protection against breast cancer development.
