enoki mushroom – cancer curing

I’d received an e-mail on enoki mushroom (picture). The scientists found that the enoki mushroom can prevent cancer. We never knew about the fact but since the kids like eating the mushroom, we always put it in our nabe ryouri (Japanese style steamboat) without realizing that we ‘might’ over-cook it. Need to be careful about the cooking time <<(‘-‘)??

Here is the e-mail on enoki mushroom:

Enoki Mushroom Prevents Cancer
Also known as: Velvet Shank Mushrooms

Golden-needle-mushroom (Jin-Gen-Goo) successfully kills 95% of cancer cells ( Taiwan Report) (Hokkien KIM CHIAM KOR)

Research done by Singapore U shows that eating this mushroom can destroy 95% of cancer cells in our body by boosting our immune system.

Professor Phan Hwai Chong of Yang Ming Research Centre in Taiwan told reporter that consuming this kind of mushroom, one of the ingredients in the mushroom can trigger the multiplication of our healthy ‘defensive’ cells. By out-numbering the cancers cells, healthy cells help eradicate cancer cells.

American scientists have since run tests on this particular type of mushroom extract with blood, done outside human body. Results show that mushroom extract is able to destroy c ancer cells.
According to Taiwan professor, since healthy ‘fighting’ cells can be multiplied to tens & thousands of times, it can either be used as drip or just by eating mushroom.

The mushroom is most frequently taken with steam boat. Cooking time should be less than 3 minutes, or the healing property would greatly diminish.

Normal eating for Health:-
Preparation, uses, and tips
Before using enoki mushrooms, rinse them thoroughly and trim off the roots at the base of the cluster. Enoki mushrooms can be eaten raw or cooked.. Add them to salads, sandwiches, soups, pasta sauces, and stir-fried rice and vegetable dishes. To retain the delicate flavor of the mushrooms, add them at the end of the cooking process.

Buying and storing tips
When purchasing fresh enoki mushrooms, select mushrooms with firm, white, shiny caps. Avoid purchasing enoki mushrooms with slimy or brownish stalks. Enoki mushrooms keep up to 14 days in the refrigerator if stored in a paper bag.
(you should try storing veggies or fruits in those aluminum foil bags that you throw away if you do buy Milo or quaker oats in packages type; it seems they can keep them longer and fresher; test to confirm??? Keep one end open and not seal it tight.) !

Varieties
Most commercially available enoki mushrooms are the pale white cultivated variety.
