Public Interest in Medicinal Mushroom Information Reaches a New Record
MedicinalMushroomInfo.com collects and publishes university-level scientific research information on health benefits of medicinal mushrooms.
Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) November 13, 2013
National Nutraceuticals, Inc., a Vancouver, BC-based company behind various health news portals, announced today that its flagship service, Medicinal Mushroom Information Center at http://medicinalmushroominfo.com increased its page view volumes by a dramatic 80.0% in just a single month in October 2013 to an annualized level of over 1.3 million read articles.
This is significant because the service was launched in September 2011, and yet, still after two years of operations, this health information portal focusing on informing people about the health benefits of medicinal mushrooms, continues to grow on a double-digits on a monthly basis.
Medicinal Mushroom Information Center is an online news service that reports on the health benefits of medicinal mushrooms. In less than two years, it has posted almost 400 articles about medicinal mushrooms and their ability to address some of the most common health problems including cancer, diabetes, heart disease and many others. The service is probably one of its kind in the world in that it collects all medicinal mushroom related scientific information under one roof and interprets and then presents it to readers in plain English.
Medicinal Mushrooms and Cancer The Most Popular Health Issue
“Medicinal mushroom’s ability to help the human body fight cancer is by far the most popular article category,” says Jukka Tolonen, the company’s Vice President of Portal Development.
“There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of peer-reviewed university-level scientific studies and clinical trials that suggest that when incorporating certain medicinal mushrooms in a cancer treatment regimen, patients’ survival rates and quality of life are significantly improved. The reason most people, including physicians, are unaware of these studies is that they have been conducted by universities and not financed by pharmaceutical companies to promote expensive cancer drugs of treatments. Natural compounds, such as medicinal mushrooms, cannot be patented. This is why companies do not have any financial interest studying the efficacy of medicinal mushrooms. They are available as dietary supplements and are very inexpensive,” Tolonen explains.
Medicinal Mushroom Information Center Educates People About Potential Cures For Various Diseases
“We believe Medicinal Mushroom Information Center provides its readers a great overview of medicinal mushrooms and their health benefits,” says Tolonen. “Since we do not advertise medicinal mushroom products and do not sell any products on our site, our readers consider us a more credible source of information than medicinal mushroom product sites. We believe our significant growth numbers prove this. People looking for medicinal mushroom related information like to go to a place where they can find all relevant scientific information under one roof,” states Tolonen.
Even though most or all information on the website is based on scientific studies and has been publicized by scientific journals and is available in scientific databases, the information at http://medicinalmushroominfo.com is not a substitute for medical advice. You must consult your doctor before using any mushroom related products. Do not discontinue, change or start a treatment program without consulting your physician first. Bear in mind that many medicinal mushroom related studies are animal studies and the same health benefits may not apply to humans. And, in most cases, an exact dosage for various medicinal mushrooms has not been established for any health issues.
Medicinal mushroom supplements are not subject to the FDA approval process and thus no dietary supplement in the market is FDA approved. Medicinal Mushroom Information Center posts the source document at the end of most articles. Even though most articles on Medicinal Mushroom Information Center are based on publicly available medical studies, clinical trials or other scientific information, please remember that human errors occasionally happen. It is a good idea to review the source document as well.
The parent company of Medicinal Mushroom Information Center, Vancouver, BC-based National Nutraceuticals, Inc. operates two other health related news portals as well:Vancouver Health News at http://vancouverhealthnews.ca and http://todayswordofwisdom.com.
