Mushrooms are amazing
Fungi predates animals and land plants and from our observations played a critical part in our evolution here on earth. They are more closely related to animals than plants and for this reason many of their environmental protective mechanisms are also beneficial to us when ingested. Many studies show the great medicinal benefits mushrooms offer.
They are everywhere on this planet and play a vital role in almost every biological process we could imagine, many of which science have shown to be invisible us.
Fungi also shows great potential in remedial applications, from dealing with oil spills, toxic soils and air pollution to digesting plastic. One way or another, our future depends on these organisms.
