Shiitake mushrooms have long been revered in Japan for their cancer fighting properties. They contain a complex sugar called lentinan. When you eat shiitake mushrooms your immune system goes in overdrive creating infection-fighting cells. Research has discovered that when people with tumors are fed a dried mushroom powder containing lentinan, they can inhibit tumor growth by 70 percent. In addition, these powerful properties are now being studied for the fight against HIV. 
Add these dark meaty mushrooms to your meals! They make a great addition to soups, stews and vegetable dishes.
