    Default Cancer cure from your flowerpot?

    The flowerpot parasol is a vivid yellow mushroom that often grows in dry potting soil. Here is a pic of one I found in my very own potted fern...




    This mushroom actually has antitumor effects:

    Polysaccharides extracted from the mycelial culture of L. binbaumii (as L. luteus) and administered intraperitoneally into white mice at a dosage of 300 mg/kg inhibited the growth of Sarcoma 180 and Ehrlich solid cancers by 70% and 80%, respectively (Ohtsuka et al., 1973).

    Polysaccharides having an anticarcinogenic effect and a method of producing them from species of Basidiomycetes.
    UK Patent 1331513, 26 September 1973.
