Eating white button mushrooms can create subtle shifts in the microbial community in the gut, which could improve the regulation of glucose in the liver, according to a team of researchers.

Interesting and there is no reason to not eat mushrooms but this is only a study on mice right now and it is sponsored by the Mushroom Council so I suspect there could be some bias there.  Anyway, further studies need to be made to see if it applies to humans.
