Bake for 10-15 minutes until the mushrooms are soft and remove them from the tray; continue to bake the sweet potatoes for 10-15 minutes until they soft but a bit crispy.

Neeva KedemAbout Neeva Kedem: Couple of years ago my life took a nice turn when I became vegan. It happened after my 40th birthday; I kind of realized that my health and energy are not as they used to be, and that change is needed. After reading lots of researches and studies, I understood that eating healthier food that is based on plants and natural ingredients will be the best for me, and so I did. It didn’t happen overnight; first, I gave up red meat. Then chicken, which was very hard for me. And only about a year later – cheese and eggs. Today I can say that being vegan improved my health and energy levels, and that I love being vegan!

Vegetables Versus Breast Cancer

Mushrooms For Breast Cancer PreventionBy: By: Dr. Michael Greger, Director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture at the Humane Society of the United States.

What new developments are there are in the battle against breast cancer? Well, most breast tumors are estrogen receptor positive, meaning they respond to estrogen; estrogen makes them grow. The problem for tumors in postmenopasal women is that there isn’t much estrogen around, unless of course you take it in a drug like pre-mar-in, made from pregnant mare urine, found not to affect the quality of women’s lives, just the quantity, increasing the risk of strokes heart attacks blood clots and, breast cancer.

Thankfully millions of women stopped taking it in 2002, and we saw a nice dip in breast cancer rates, but unfortunately, those rates have since stagnated. Hundreds of thousands of American women continue every year to get that dreaded diagnosis. So what next?

Well, with no estrogen around, many breast tumors devise a nefarious plan, they’ll just make their own. 70% of breast cancer cells synthesize estrogen themselves using an enzyme called aromatase, which converts testosterone to estrogen, blue to pink. And so drug companies have produced a number of aromatase inhibitor drugs which are used as chemotherapy agents. Of course by the time you’re on chemo it can be too late, so researchers started screening hundreds of natural dietary components in hopes of finding something that targets this enzyme.

To do this, you need a lot of human tissue—where you going to get it from? To study skin, for example, researchers use discarded human foreskins. They’re just being thrown away might as well use them. Where are you going to get discarded female tissue, though? Placentas. Human placentas. So they got a bunch of women to donate their placentas after giving birth to further this critical line of research.

After years of searching, they found seven vegetables with significant anti-aromatase activity. And here they are,. Seven different vegetables, dropping aromatase activity about 20%, except for this one. That’s like a 60, 65% drop inhibition. ]Which one was it? bell pepper, broccoli, carrots, celery , green onions, mushrooms, or spinach. Not scallions, not celery, not carrots, not peppers, nor broccoli—that would have been my guess, not spinach, but: Mushrooms.

Breast Cancer Prevention: Which Mushroom Is Best?

Research Shows Breast Cancer Benefits of MushroomsBy: Michael Greger, M.D., is a physician, author, and internationally recognized professional speaker.

In this landmark study to find out which vegetable was best at suppressing the activity of the enzyme used by breast cancer cells to undermine our defenses, mushrooms came out number 1, but this was just for plain white mushrooms. If that’s how regular mushrooms roll, then think how good the exotic varieties may do.

So they put them to the test, comparing regular mushrooms to woodear, crimini, oyster mushrooms, Italian brown, enoki, button mushrooms, which are just baby versions of regular white mushrooms, stuffing mushrooms, which are just big white mushrooms, shiitake, chanterelle, and Portobello.

We already know what this one is here. Remember, 60- to 65% drop? White mushrooms, the original. Most of these other mushrooms are stuck up here in celery carrot-land. But one beat our regular fun-guy. Which one do you think it was?

Woodear, crimini, oyster, Italian brown, enoki, button, stuffing, shiitake, chanterelle, or Portobello?

I never would have guessed this one. Better than plain white mushrooms? Big plain white mushrooms!

In conclusion, these studies suggest that daily intake of the common white button mushroom may have a significant cancer preventive effect with regard to breast cancer development. White button mushrooms are relatively inexpensive and readily available in markets across the United States, and therefore are a feasible addition to any dietary plan.

Breast Cancer Garden Idea: Growing Shiitake Mushrooms Indoors

Breast Cancer Garden With Shiitake Mushrooms
By Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.
Luckily, you don’t need to be a farmer (or even live near a farm) in order to reap the benefits of home-grown medicinal mushrooms. If you have a sunny window (or two, or five) and a bit of extra time on your hands, then you’re capable of growing your own organic mushrooms right at home. Read on for our easy, healthy mushroom ideas to cultivate indoors — and how to get them growing!

Making a Bathroom Mushroom House

Bathroom Mushroom Garden For Breast Cancer
If you haven’t given the joy of home-grown organic mushroom cultivation a go yet due to lack of space that is relatively stable in temperature and high humidity, it might be time you had a little rethink. Your bathroom is a mushroom growing space waiting to happen. Whether you’re cultivating shiitake, oyster varieties, enoki or any other saprophytic species, your bathroom can help to create the perfect environment for your mushrooms in their fruiting stage. Given that it’s the room in your house in which many hot showers are taken, it is generally more moist and humid than other rooms in your house. Step By Step Instructions at Milkwood.

Mushroom Farm Kit And The Growing Process

Mushroom Growing Kit For Breast Cancer Gardening
I don’t have a green thumb…how easy are the mushrooms to grow? As easy as 1) opening 2) misting and 3) harvesting… in just 10-15 days! It’s so easy and our main supporters are kids that are growing their own food!

How long can I store the farm before I need to start growing it? The farm will stay fresh in the box for months before you start growing your mushrooms. Make sure you keep your farm in a cool area/room that doesn’t receive any direct sunlight (i.e., closet, bedroom). Once opened you just need oxygen, water, and light to activate your farm!

Where should I grow my farm? All you need is a window sill, perfect for you urban dwellers out there! Ideally, you want to grow your mushrooms indoors with indirect sunlight and a bit of fresh air. Indirect sunlight will help the mushroom caps develop to their full potential. Once you see the tiny pin heads pop out, they’ll double in size each day!

Shiitake Mushroom Benefits Breast Cancer

Shiitake Mushroom Benefit Breast CancerShiitake mushrooms are promoted to fight the development and progression of cancer and AIDS by boosting the body’s immune system. These mushrooms are also said to help prevent heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels and to help treat infections such as hepatitis by producing interferon, a group of natural proteins that stops viruses from multiplying. Promoters claim that eating both the cap and stem of the mushroom may be helpful, but they do not say how much must be eaten to have an effect. They say the strength and effects of the mushroom depend on how it is prepared and consumed. Learn More From American Cancer Society.
