Backyard Mushrooms, Watch Out!

I love mushrooms! I eat them EVERY week. Mushrooms are PACKED with phytochemicals and studies show mushrooms can help fight obesity.

Unfortunately, most Americans list mushrooms as one of their MOST hated foods, even though mushroom-technology could SAVE the planet!

But DON’T eat the mushrooms in your backyard! Chances are they’re poisonous and can cause seizures and liver damage; via Julie’s Health Club.

I have to say that it is okay to eat your backyard mushrooms, as long as you know EXACTLY what the are and have a lot of mushroom hunting experiance, as well as you know that the mushrooms have never seen pesticides. My family actully grows our own oysters, and we eat those as they are kept pesticide free.
oh , and
it is Amanita muscaria, and extremely poisonous.

Dr. Furhman,

I would like to start take mushroom pills. Can you recommend what dosages and type of pills I should take? I love all kinds of mushhrooms to eat, but would like the easiest way to incorporate them in my diet. Thank you for your help!
