A study published in the International Journal of Cancer further proved the potential disease-fighting capabilities of mushrooms with regards to cancer. The study only slightly proves that eating mushrooms could lower your risk for prostate cancer, however, some scientists note that just eating healthfully might reduce your risk at the same rate.
Compared with those who ate mushrooms less than once a week, those who ate mushrooms one or two times each week had an 8% lower relative risk of prostate cancer. Those who ate mushrooms three or more times each week had a 17% lower relative risk.
