My brother, Nizam-though graduated and trained in accountancy field, developed his passion with mushrooms. I would call him a mushroom specialist!. visit his blog:
This article from Natural News (http://www.naturalnews.com/ ) is about an interview between the webmaster, Mike Adams with Mark Kaylor, a PhD holder researhing in area of medicinal benefits of mushroom especially maitake, and reishi in treating cancer and diabetes.
I think a worth article to read-for mushroom lovers as well as holistic medicine proponent like me..
Mike: I'm here today with Mark Kaylor of Maitake Products. Can you tell me about the company and the line of products you represent?
Kaylor: I'm here with a company named Maitake Products; maitake is actually the name of a mushroom. It's a Japanese word -- "mi" in Japanese translates as dancing, and "taki" translates as mushroom. "Shiitake" means mushroom from the shii tree, and in this case we have dancing mushroom, which is maitake. We're known for a variety of medicinal mushroom products, particularly two: The SX-Fraction and the maitake D-fraction.
