Association of mushroom consumption with all-cause and cause-specific mortality among American adults: prospective cohort study findings from NHANES III

High dietary ingestion of mushrooms may promote healthy aging and extend the lifespan of an individual.

This study clarified the association between the intake of mushrooms and the odds of dying from chronic diseases and other causes. Researchers followed the diets and mortality records of 15,546 US men and women over a period of 19.5 years. A total of 5,826 people died during the course of the study. 

Researchers discovered that consumers of mushrooms were more likely to live longer than their colleagues on high red and processed meat diets. This study concluded that "mushroom consumption was associated with a lower risk of total mortality in this nationally representative sample of US adults."
