Shiitake revisited

Lentinan, a polysaccharide extracted from shiitake, may help extend the survival of patients with some cancers... [too much mushroom can bring on Eosinophilia]

Eosinophilia occurs when too many eosinophils are recruited to a specific site in your body. This can be caused by a variety of conditions including:
•Parasitic and fungal diseases
•Allergies (e.g. rash, bowel irritation)
•Adrenal conditions
•Skin disorders (solar dermatitis, eczema dermatitis)
•Autoimmune diseases (inflamed arthritis)

I, for one, will NOT claim mushrooms cure cancer. I will say that I attribute a lower PSA to the effects of adding a teaspoon of Powdered Shiitake Mushrooms to a bowl of Cream of Mushroom soup every day of the week for a month. BTW, there is no Dairy MILK in that Cream of Mushroom soup. Soy milk - use soy milk (get it?).

I should mention: "Some U.S. dairy farms inject the genetically engineered hormone rBGH, also called rBST, into their cows to boost milk production..."

rBGH and Cancer

Monsanto created rBGH to stimulate milk production in cows... A 2013 study evaluated the relation of IFG and prostate cancer.

Like most other large corporations Monsanto has a lobbying interest in the federal government. According to Monsanto ranks 76 out of 4,368 organizations in money spent lobbying, shelling out over $5.9 million in 2012. Their control in government isn’t subtle...

My mom's family farmed the Palouse for generations and they are gentle folks.

It's called "push-back" rather than protest or the extreme - revolution. Monsanto IS the revolution in GMO Agriculture.

Ethical farmers use "push back."

the Center for Responsive Politics says...

Republicans are the best government MONEY CAN BUY.

The situation has become so absurd that super PACs have more money and more influence over campaigns than the candidates themselves.

There is push-back to the pushback.

DuPont Co., the world’s second-biggest (GMO) seed company, is sending dozens of former police officers across North America to prevent a practice generations of farmers once took for granted.
