Could there be the magic in Mushrooms to Beat Swine Flu

 

Mushrooms could improve our health because of a protein called cytokines playing an important role in defending the body against viral infections and tumours, according to researchers at the Tufts University in Massachusetts.

Dietician Glenn Cardwell said: "Laboratory research found the intake of mushrooms may promote innate immunity the body's first line of defence against viruses. Further studies involving influenza infection are now under way to test these findings."

The continuous anxiety about the affects of influenza, predominantly swine flu; suggests that eating a balanced diet increases our immune systems are imperative. This latest research can be found in the Journal of Nutrition.

  So everyone  
 
When there's a flu outbreak in your area, order up a pizza with mushrooms, get plenty of beer and have an "innoculation party". To your health!

I believe this proteine exists in milk but breaks up at 72 degrees. Long before the boiling point.

I need to get back to breastfeed again.

If that were true, it knocks your theory in the head, doesn't it?

  LOL  
 
We can boost our immune systems all we want while we are strong. But if we don't catch the virus when our bodies can handle it, we will catch it when we are older and weaker and increasing the odds of dieing from it.
