To evaluate the association between dietary mushroom intake and breast cancer risk, a total of 362 women between the ages of 30 and 65 years who were histologically confirmed to have breast cancer were matched to controls by age (±2 years) and menopausal status. Mushroom intake was measured via a food frequency questionnaire that was administered by well‐trained interviewers. The associations between the daily intake and the average consumption frequency of mushrooms with breast cancer risk…

It is demonstrated that mushroom intake may be inversely associated with risk of breast cancer, which need to be confirmed with large-scale prospective studies further.

Mushroom Consumption and Risk of Total and Site-Specific Cancer in Two Large U.S. Prospective Cohorts

No association between mushroom consumption and total and site-specific cancers in U.S. women and men is found and more prospective cohort studies are needed to examine the associations for specific cancer types in diverse racial/ethnic groups.

The association of carbohydrate intake, glycemic load, glycemic index, and selected rice foods with breast cancer risk: a case-control study in South Korea.

The results do not support an association between breast cancer and diets high in carbohydrate, glycemic index, or glycemic load, however, a higher consumption of mixed brown rice may be associated with a decreased risk of breast cancer, especially in overweight, postmenopausal women.

Higher Mushroom Consumption Is Associated with Lower Risk of Cancer: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Observational Studies.

There was evidence of a significant nonlinear dose-response association between mushroom consumption and the risk of total cancer, particularly breast cancer, and this may indicate a potential protective role for mushrooms in the diet.



Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase polymorphism, diet, and breast cancer in Korean women

The findings suggest that MTHFR polymorphism did not influence individual susceptibility to breast cancer, however MTH FR (C667T) genotype and green vegetable intakes appeared to have the interactive effect in breast cancer development.

The author describes a study which shows that natural killer cells can double in number with 8 wk of treatment with Coriolus versicolor and an epidemiological survey of cancer deaths among Flammulina velutipes farmers in Japan, which found that the mushroom farmers had lower rates of cancer death than controls who were not involved in mushroom farming.

Inhibition of oxidative stress-induced invasiveness of cancer cells by Ganoderma lucidum is mediated through the suppression of interleukin-8 secretion.

The results suggest that G. lucidum inhibits the oxidative stress-induced invasive behavior of breast cancer cells by modulating Erk1/2 signaling and can be potentially considered as an antioxidant in adjuvant cancer therapy.
