    I really thought this was going to be cabbage before I saw the video. I have read that new research says cabbage can be good against certain cancers but I don’t remember if breast cancer is one. Both of my grandmothers had breast cancer so I am VERY interested in breast health. Thank you for this information. I love mushrooms and my daughter and I will up our consumption. Is there a recommended weekly amount and any particular kind better than others?

    Maitake mushrooms are a staple food for us, generally well known as chemopreventive.

    Fascinating! So women should enjoy mushrooms regularly, but be sure to cook the mushrooms first to inactivate the agaratine, right?

    • Michael Greger M.D.

      Exactly Karen! See Toxins in Raw Mushrooms?

        That’s what I was going to ask. Thought I’d heard that!

    Dr. Greger, while we’re talking about mushrooms, I seen an article in one of my wife’s health magazines that said that mushrooms should only be eaten cooked. Is this true?
