A treatment for Depression and Anxiety in Cancer Patients

Mushrooms.  As in “Magic Mushrooms”.  As in hallucinogenic Mushrooms. Well, actually, psilocybin. About 80 percent of cancer patients showed clinically significant reductions in both psychological disorders, a response sustained some seven months after the single dose. Side effects were minimal.
