Weird Fungus DESTROYS Prostate Cancer
Mainstream medicine has let men down when it comes to testing for and treating prostate cancer.
That’s why I’m always on the lookout for better ways to more accurately diagnose it—and to determine the best course of treatment.
But today, I want to approach prostate cancer from a different angle… how to make sure you NEVER get it in the first place.
And a certain weird fungus can help you do exactly that.
I’ve always loved mushrooms.
Mushroom soup, raw mushrooms on a salad, sautéed mushrooms, you name it.
And according to a recent study, my love of mushrooms could help make sure that I never develop prostate cancer.
Previous lab and animal studies show that mushrooms contain prostate-cancer-preventing properties.
But this study published in the International Journal of Cancer is the first long-term study to specifically evaluate the connection between EATING mushrooms and your risk of developing prostate cancer.
For the study, researchers studied two different groups of people totaling over 36,000 men between 40 and 79 years old. The men answered questionnaires about the foods they ate (including mushrooms), as well as physical activity, smoking, medical history, and more.
The researchers followed one group for over 13 years, and the other for over 24.
Here’s what the researchers found:
- Men who ate mushrooms 1-2 times per week had an 8% lower risk of prostate cancer compared to those who ate them less than once a week.
- Men who ate mushrooms 3+ times a week had a 17% lower risk of prostate cancer.
Even more interesting, the mushroom eaters were protected against prostate cancer even if they weren’t consuming an overall healthy diet.
This is likely due to a compound found in mushrooms called L-ergothioneine, which combats the oxidative stress that can contribute to chronic inflammation – the driving force behind cancer.
Eating mushrooms is a great way to make sure you never get cancer to begin with. But if you DO find yourself with prostate cancer, remember not to jump into aggressive treatment options too soon.
Often, your best option could be to “watch and wait” since prostate cancer often isn’t fatal. So ask your doctor lots of questions before taking the slice-and-dice approach.
