A strong correlation between regular consumption of green tea plus fresh or dried mushrooms and a lowered risk of breast cancer was determined due to a study conducted in China by an Australian research team from the University of Perth.
The study which was carried out nearly a decade ago included more than 1,000 women aged 20 to 87 years which had all been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The same number of women who hasn’t been diagnosed with the disease were asked to participate as a control group.
The study involved monitoring and recoding the consumption of a variety of foods and drinks by women from both groups. The conclusion was that Chinese women who drink green tea on a daily basis and consume dry or fresh mushrooms regularly actually have 89% lesser risk of developing cancer. This included women before, during and after menopause.
The women in the study who reportedly ate at least 10g of fresh mushrooms were found to have a 64% smaller risk of developing breast cancer and those who ate dry mushrooms on a daily basis had a 47% lesser risk of getting sick.
Due to the combination between daily consumption of green tea and mushrooms, the risk was lowered to a stunning 89% for the participants compared to others who didn’t consume green tea and mushrooms on a regular basis or ever
