According to Mother Nature Network, cultures around the world have eaten or used mushrooms medicinally for centuries. Legend has it that pharaohs in Ancient Egypt declared the fungi royalty food and forbid commoners from touching them. Some mushrooms like shiitake have lentinan, a type of sugar molecule, which may help extend the survival of patients with some cancers. The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center says lentinan "enhances the immune system, which may aid in slowing the growth of tumors." Mushrooms are also cholesterol free and can help lower cholesterol.
