Mail's latest miracle cure

In a story with a not entirely coherent headline, the Mail is reporting a study that mushrooms can cut the risk of breast cancer.

This is of course the latest in a long line of breast cancer stories that the Mail has printed recently.

Other tips: don't work nights, drink three cups of tea a day, have HRT, take a daily aspirin, take up salsa, don't drink wine every day, get lots of calcium and vitamin D, go outside, don't lead a stressful city life, don't put on weight, don't give birth over 30...in other words, exercise, eat healthily, don't drink too much alcohol and not getting too anxious at work are more conducive to a healthy life. Who'd have thunk it?

In any case, even this mushroom story isn't exactly new - the link was reported nearly a year ago.
