A Mushroom Biography

The Origin of the Mushroom

Actually, there is “documented proof” that edible mushrooms have been around for only about one thousand years, but it’s known that mushrooms have been around for much longer. Most mushrooms are very poisonous with a mortality rate of 60%, that include symptoms of sudden cold sweats, cramps, diarrhea, confusion, convulsions, and eating toxic mushrooms may even cause severe liver damage.

Never eat a wild mushroom, UNLESS you are an expert in the field. Always purchase your mushrooms from a well known “respected” mushroom distributor.

Although mushrooms can be found all over the world, it was China that first recorded using edible mushrooms. In fact, the Shiitake mushroom is used as a cancer treatment, found mostly in East Asia.
