They are suitable for you because they are an excellent protein source and provide a range of minerals and vitamins, including vitamin D, which UV light exposure enhances. 

However, Agaricus Bisporus and all other edible mushrooms contain a small number of irritating compounds. These include hydrazine, a group of carcinogenic chemicals. The good news, however, is that this small amount of chemicals is significantly reduced by cooking. For this reason, cooking your mushrooms is widely recommended. The heat from cooking has the additional benefit of breaking down the mushroom's cell walls, which are harder to digest if eaten raw, so cooking them makes it easier on your digestive system.
