    Default Eating Mushrooms May Help Lower Prostate Cancer Risk

    A new study published in the International Journal of Cancer found an inverse relationship between mushroom consumption and the development of prostate cancer among middle-aged and elderly Japanese men, suggesting that regular mushroom intake might help to prevent prostate cancer.

    Thanks for posting! Unfortunately, the study stated it did not capture the specific mushroom types eaten by participants. However, based on other studies I've read in the past, "Reishi mushrooms" (Ganoderma Lucidum) are the mushrooms most often identified as being beneficial for prostate health and potentially preventing prostate cancer. In addition to reishi mushrooms, the following nutrients are highly touted for prostate health: 1. curcumin, 2. grape seed extract, 3. zinc, 4. pomegranate extract, 5. green tea extract, 6. boswellia, and 7. modified citrus pectin.
