Mighty mushrooms

A mushroom a day keeps the doctor away!

Mighty mushroomsDid you know that women who eat an average of one mushroom (10g) per day can halve their risk of breast cancer? According to the latest research done by the Beckman Institute at the City of Hope Cancer Centre in California and the University of Australia, in collaboration with Zhejiang University in China, it’s true!

Mushrooms are loaded with natural antioxidant compounds, as well as Vitamin D, which help to lower your risk of developing cancer.
We love Pick n Pay’s pink mushroom punnets! During the month of October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), R1 from each 250g punnet of whole white button mushrooms and sliced white button mushrooms sold will go to Reach For Recovery – a breast cancer support group.
