Have you had the pleasure of seeing Paul Stamets talk?  In this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XI5frPV58tY, he talks about many beneficial uses of mushrooms, including how effective many are for various health conditions. The common Turkey Tail mushroom in particular seems to be good. This study shows that Turkey Tail mushrooms are helpful for those who have undergone breast cancer treatment: ‘The study titled “Phase I Clinical Trial of Trametes versicolor in Women with Breast Cancer,” recently published in the ISRN Oncology Journal, shows that turkey tail mushrooms can augment conventional therapies for treating breast cancer by increasing NK and CD8+T cell activity. This study suggests that turkey tail mushrooms are an effective adjunct to conventional chemotherapeutic medicines and radiation therapy.’

But mushrooms you can buy in the grocery store, like shiitake and maitake, are also known to be good for your health. Why not make them a regular part of your diet?
