The University of Pennsylvania carried out a Mushroom Study – with shocking results! The study involved 15 dogs with naturally occurring hemangiosarcoma to see how long they lived when given this specific mushroom extract. Based on the factors the researchers were assessing, which was how quickly the tumors developed and/or spread and how long the dogs lived, the study results suggested the mushroom compound was effective in fighting the cancer.
The results were so astonishing the researchers asked their Penn Vet pathologist colleagues to reconfirm from tissue biopsies that the dogs really had hemangiosarcoma (they did).
This is not your average mushroom to be found in supermarkets – its a special mushroom “coriolus versicolor” so don’t go getting geared up for mushroom picking – you really do need the right one!
