Mushrooms Do Movember

Have you heard of Movember? Do you participate at work, school, or in your community?

“During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.”

Movember raises funds for Prostate Cancer Canada by having men join teams and getting sponsors and donations for those teams. Check out the Rules for Movember here

The Canadian Cancer Society recommends choosing 5 to 10 servings of vegetables and fruit every day to reap the benefits of their disease-fighting antioxidants and phytochemicals. As they are low in calories and fat, have very little carbohydrate and provide some fibre, fresh mushrooms are a delicious way to eat healthy. In addition, emerging research also suggests that mushrooms and mushroom extracts may have potent anticancer activity, against both breast and prostate cancer.

Each week, we will be showing off a new Mushtache to show our Movember support!
