Cancer is one of the scariest words in any language. But simple lifestyle changes can minimize the threat for most of us. There’s evidence to suggest that women eating 10g of mushrooms per day – that’s just one white button mushroom per day! – seem to halve their risk of getting breast cancer. So lots of good green veg, clean water, rest and, of course, fungi daily! And make it as delicious as possible, like in our gorgeous Tandoori Mushroom Naans http://bit.ly/2xWUVio. #pinkpunnet #fruitandveg #breastcancer #minimizerisk #mushroomseveryday
