Chinese diet tip could keep breast cancer from mushrooming

Chinese diet tip could keep breast cancer from mushrooming

The results of this new study about possible breast cancer preventative could grow on you like a fungus. Apparently, women who eat just a third of an ounce of fresh mushrooms every day could decrease their chances of developing breast cancer by a whopping 64 percent!

Even though this study comes from China – and you know how I feel about things from China – I'm inclined to be encouraged. After all, before China became known for its deadly imports, substandard pharmaceutical ingredients, toothpaste and milk products, it was also one of the birthplaces of natural cures.

In fact, this study found that the daily dose of mushrooms combined with regular consumption of green tea yielded a risk decrease of – hold on to your button caps – 90 percent!

Obviously, there must be something in the Chinese diet that's working right, because breast cancer rates in that country are significantly lower than in countries in the west – by as much as five times.

In short you're saying the Soy that is in just about everything and tea in the usa is healthy.

No.  Actually, I'm teasing you.  Hell, I don't know what's healthy or not, I just don't think eating soy is bad for you.  But all the additives in food?  Probably not a good idea.  Big difference between eating tofu and eating isolated vegetable protein.  I'm just saying, if eating a lot of soy was as bad as you say, it certainly would have shown up in the breast due to those nasty isoflavones you're so concerned about.  Don't kick a good bean when it's down.
