Mushroom Power

People have been eating mushrooms for millennia--the iceman Oetzi even had some dried ones with him when he died. There may be ways for us to boost our immune systems and one of these may be by eating mushrooms. And we can increase our brainpower by eating berries. Hey, these are better than some of the things we could be eating!

It's not too late to change your eating habits (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show), and mushrooms are among the many foods thought to play an important role in keeping the immune system healthy. Now scientists have conducted a study showing that white button mushrooms enhanced the activity of critical cells in the body's immune system. In the United States, white button mushrooms represent 90% of the total mushrooms consumed.

Meanwhile, scientists say they have evidence that eating blueberries and strawberries may help the aging brain stay healthy in a crucial but previously unrecognized way. Berries, and possibly walnuts, activate the brain's natural "housekeeper" mechanism, which cleans up and recycles toxic proteins linked to age-related memory loss and other mental decline.
