Breast cancer affects all women

Mushrooms are the Chuck Bodaks1 of nutrition and potentially your most valuable natural ally in the fight against prostate cancer.  With statistics indicating that nearly 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, men need to find a way to keep their PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) levels down or, more to the point, help prevent cancer’s recurrence. It’s time to take a serious look at white button mushrooms, as they just could be IT.


Researchers treated 36 prostate cancer patients with white button mushroom powder, assessing their PSA levels' responsiveness to different doses of the powder and whether the men experienced any ill effects. After 3 months of daily use of the powder, 36% of patients experienced some reduction in PSA, with two patients experiencing a remarkable complete response, meaning their PSA levels dropped to undetectable levels. Of significance is that the complete response continued for 49 and 30 months.
