A presentation about Fungi (Mushrooms), its history with the planet, and importance to humans cross-culturally around the world.

Information presented is based on the work of Paul Stamets, D.Sc. recognized mycologist, author, speaker and environmentalist.

Dr. Stamets’ incredible realization that liquid mushroom extracts can help honeybees overcome Colony Collapse Disorder will be discussed. Also of interest will be mushroom mycelium (the rootlike network) and its application to clean up toxic spills and polluted waters. Finally, information on the Host Defense Line® of organic mushroom supplements for immune support and human health will be shared*.
