Do you know The Mushroom Man? Well, here he is, Paul Stamets. He is an American mycologist (a biologist that studies fungi), author, and advocate of bioremediation (use of biological agents, such as bacteria or plants, to remove or neutralize contaminants, as in polluted soil or water) and medicinal mushrooms.
He believes that mushrooms can heal our planet. They are the “neurological network of nature.”
Mr. Stamets’ research shows that these incredible fungal spores can:
- Restore environmental habitats that have been destroyed by pollution
- Naturally fight flu viruses and numerous other diseases
- Be a natural insecticide without the pesticides
- Create a sustainable fuel called Econol
Here are some quotes from Paul Stamets, along with some beautiful alien like fungi.
Spend an ethereal 2 minutes watching Fantastic Fungi: The Forbidden Fruit. It’s beautiful beyond words!
Another of Paul’s Projects:
“The Life Box: Plant a Box – Grow a Tree – Save a Planet.” http://www.fungi.com/life-box.html
What a fantastic, feasible and fun-gi idea!
