In the 1980s, scientists discovered that oyster mushrooms are carnivores. The delicious, inescapable inference is that they’re the only vegan food that can itself eat meat.
The meat in question is definitely meat, too. Nematodes, also called roundworms, are little animals complete with guts, nerves, muscles and their own primitive form of hopes and dreams. Oyster mushrooms poison and paralyze nematodes within minutes of contact, inject their filaments into the corpses, dissolve the contents and absorb the slurry.
When you ‘read more’ you can click the link in this sentence…I found it very interesting read. A team of Taiwanese scientists that sought to answer those questions published their results last March in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
‘‘not that much’’ is truly known about the true toxicity levels of ‘safe edible’ mushrooms when you realize that this oyster mushroom has a paralyzing toxin in in like this to take out small prey! We can only guess what the stuff in mushrooms are doing to humans but of course, being lower levels we do understand the body can interact and many eat them and do well…but just a little imagination that mushrooms haven’t been researched to their depth really…kinda like our universe, ever mysterious and can be very deadly at all times
just a good read on it tho
and for me personally, one eating fungus? fungi? isn’t that the crap we avoid cause it can cause a ton of body issues? darn right it is so when we see green mold on bread do we eat it and smile? Do we live with black mold in homes and embrace it? Darn right we do not LOL
thing is fungus is ‘broad’ and while we get the safety of small things like eating a mushroom think in full truth what one IS really eating. A plant that thrives on decay and mold and is a predator eating worms and thrives to be just that and YET we as humans WANNA eat that!! again, just a thought on it when you put it all in perspective of what one puts in their mouth
