Anticancer Effect of Mushrooms Demonstrated

Edible Mushrooms cooked are powerful in the fight against cancer. I personally don’t like chewing the slimy foods but I found making a soup and pureeing it really makes them actually taste pretty good.

Shiuan Chen, Ph.D., associate chair and professor of City of Hope’s Department of Cancer Biology, identified phytochemicals in mushrooms that block the ezyme aromatase from producing estrogen. Controlling aromatase activity can help decrease estrogen levels, which controls and kills hormone-dependent breast cancers. In addition, mushrooms also demonstrate the ability to inhibit cancer call activity and slow tumor growth.
