A well balanced diet should include mushrooms.
Researchers at the University of Western Australia discovered in their study that women who ate at least 10g of white button mushrooms per day were 64 percent less likely to develop breast cancer. An emerging body of science suggests that higher intakes of vitamin D may be associated with lower risks for some cancers, including prostrate, breast, lung, colon and colorectal cancers. Mushrooms are the only vegetable that naturally contains vitamin D, a nutrient that many people lack.

Mushrooms may also help prevent cancer by providing natural antioxidant compounds. Antioxidants work to neutralise free radicals (naturally occurring chemicals that can damage cells, DNA and initiate the cancer process) and help to repair damage that has already occurred.
