Eating mushrooms might reduce prostate cancer risk
New research suggests that regularly eating mushrooms may reduce a person’s risk of prostate cancer.
The National Cancer Institute predict that there will be 174,650 new cases of prostate cancer in the United States in 2019.
Although treatment for this type of cancer is continually improving, there is neither a cure nor any way to prevent it.
However, evidence suggests that eating healthfully might reduce the risk.
If scientists can identify simple dietary interventions that can reduce this risk, even by a small amount, it could make a substantial difference globally.
Researchers have recently carried out a study on mushrooms, publishing their findings in the International Journal of Cancer.
