Mushrooms and Green Tea to stop Cancer?

Apparently yes-a friend of mine sent me a link last night from the "Sydney Morning Herald". The article titled "One Mushroom a Day to Stop Breast cancer" talks of a study conducted to determine the protective properties of traditional Chinese diets. The study concludes that mushrooms(as little as one per day) and green tea could protect you from breast cancer.Lab research has shown that mushrooms have anti-tumor properties while green tea has polyphenols (an antioxidant compound) that have shown to fight breast tumors in animals.
So,the next time you go shopping,don't forget to buy some fresh mushrooms and a packet of green tea.
