TED Talk: The Medical Mushroom Mystery Tour

Planet Permaculture

Paul Stamets (mycologist) talks about four mushrooms for use in human health. He delves into aspects such as the antimicrobial properties of fungi, how they can be used as potent insecticides and how they may help boost the human immune system. I won’t spoil the end of the talk but he goes into cures for cancer which is really quite amazing.

Also another little snippet I picked up from the talk that I wanted to mention here is was how “H5N1 (bird flu) is carried by house flys”, interesting stuff! Hope you all enjoy this talk, I know I did, this material completely fascinates me to no end!!!

Here’s the Q&A session he done after the talk as well:
