Eating mushrooms reduces the risk of prostate cancer in middle-aged and elderly people. Researchers have to say this. This research involved 36499 men aged between 40 and 79 years. These people participated in the Miyagi Cohort Study in 1990 and the Ohsaki Cohort Study in 1994. Shou Zhang, lead author at Tohoku University School of Public Health, Japan, said that information about the species of mushroom was not collected, so it is difficult to say which species of mushroom contributed to our results.
Eating mushrooms twice was found to have an 8 percent lower risk of prostate cancer.
According to the study, it was found that eating mushrooms twice a week and eating twice a week showed that eating mushrooms twice was found to have an 8 percent lower risk of prostate cancer. At the same time, 17% of the mushroom eaters were found to have less of prostate cancer three times a week.
