  1. I must say, as a lot as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a wonderful grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from far more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the cancer hospital in india

  8. Nördliche und subpolare Länder sind die besten Orte, um die Pilze anzubauen. Besonders verbreitet ist die Chagaga-Pflanze in Finnland und Russland, insbesondere in Sibirien. Es wächst normalerweise auf den Stämmen von Birken, wo die Bedingungen und Nährstoffe am besten sind.Der dunkel gefärbte Pilz kann schwer zu erkennen sein. Die weiße Rinde der Birke liefert Betulin, einen Wirkstoff, der in der Hautpflege verwendet wird. Es gibt viele Namen für den Chaga-Pilz, darunter Schiefer-Schillerporling, Chaga-Pilz, Tschaga und Inonotus obliquus. Der Pilz wird häufig in der traditionellen Medizin verwendet. Chaga-Tee, Rohextrakt aus dem Pilz oder Tinktur dienten zur Stärkung des Immunsystems oder zur Behandlung vieler Krankheiten. Studien haben den Pilz und seine Inhaltsstoffe hinsichtlich seiner potentiellen Wirksamkeit bei der Behandlung von Krebs1 und Leberentzündung2 sowie seiner antiallergischen Wirkung mit den in Pilzen vorkommenden Triterpenoiden3 bewertet.
