Mushrooms May Protect Against Cancer
A systematic review and meta-analysis of 17 cancer studies analyzing data from more than 19,500 cancer patients have found that mushrooms help guard against cancer. The researchers found that people who ate 18 grams of mushrooms daily had a 45% lower risk of cancer compared to people who did not eat mushrooms.
Emerging evidence has suggested that mushrooms may have neuroprotective properties. More recently, investigators from the Ohsaki cohort 2006 study showed that frequent mushroom consumption of 3 times per week or more was associated with a 19% reduced risk of incident dementia among Japanese aged 65 years and above.
