Mushroom Council: Tuesday #gno Twitter Party on Health and Breast Cancer Awareness
Now that it is October, the spotlight is shining on breast cancer, and rightfully so. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 232,620 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in the U.S. this year.
A proven part of cancer prevention is healthier diets. The USDA MyPlate already recommends half a plate of fruits and vegetables. So if you’re looking to pile on the veggies, consider that leading cancer research center, City of Hope, has reported about mushrooms' cancer fighting abilities. Also, mushrooms help lower cholesterol, and improve immune system with vitamin B complex, Vitamin D, and Vitamin C. Who knew mushrooms can do so much besides add more flavor!
To support important research on mushrooms and cancer, the Mushroom Council has invested $750,000 in grants to the City of Hope since 2002. This fall, the Mushroom Council is providing an additional $50,000 and will sell mushrooms in pink containers in recognition of breast cancer research and Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
If you visit the Mushroom Channel Facebook page you will see that they are also sharing lots of mouth watering recipes that will help us find new and fun ways to add mushrooms to our diets. Whether you are trying to incorporate cancer fighting foods in your diet or just improve your overall health, you will want to join our #gno twitter party on October 4 to learn how.
