White button mushrooms.
Researchers demonstrated the in vivo action of mushroom chemicals using nude mice injected with breast cancer or prostate cancer cells. Studies showed that mushroom extract decreased both tumor cell proliferation and increased apoptosis. Based on these preclinical findings, clinical trials have been initiated to see whether consuming mushrooms will prevent or delay the development of breast cancer and prostate cancer in humans.
