The Daily Express at the weekend provided the tremendously exciting news that 'breakfast is good for you', at least according to information provided by people who undertake work in PR for the breakfast cereals industry.
You might be cynical, then, when reading today's Express front page:
Mushrooms have beaten cancer! Imagine that, when human beings have been trying to do it for decades. Along come mushrooms and develop a cure for cancer, right under our noses. Why, those pesky fungi!
However, it's not quite 'beating cancer', as you'll see:
Scientists have revealed the maitake mushroom can shrink tumours by as much as 75 per cent.
That does sound impressive, but that's not 'beating cancer', that's just shrinking tumours, which isn't quite the same thing. Hands up who wants 25% of their tumour still remaining? Anyone... no...?
Still some way to go, then.
