National Geographic calls shrooms potentially lethal?!

Psilocybin mushrooms

Common names: shrooms, magic mushrooms
Usage method: eaten or brewed
Recreational uses: relaxation and psychological reflection
How it works: psilocin is absorbed into the blood stream where it is taken to the brain, causing mortification of the brain’s control over sleep, appetite, sensory perception, temperature regulation, pain suppression and mood
Effects:  increase emotional awareness, reduction of psychological confusion, confusion, panic, stomach pains, vomiting, diarrhea, even death
Long-tem effects: can trigger underlying mental disorders and cause schizophrenic-type symptoms, users can experience recurring episodes of anxiety and panic months
Physically addictive: no





Quote:

Effects:  increase emotional awareness, reduction of psychological confusion, confusion, panic, stomach pains, vomiting, diarrhea, even death




What does shroomery have to say about this?

They are going to far with that, a poisonous mushroom might cause all that.

Fatal accident caused by perceptional differences, i.e car accident, falling from balcony, exposure to the elements ect

There is no proof that cubensis can cause death? No records or research? Thought not.

National Geographic has somewhat of an anti-progressive bias in some aspects.

In the green fuels issue they entirely neglected hemp.

"mortification" is interesting word-choice...

... and by "interesting" I mean "stupid."

They were a bit vague in their descriptions of the effects. As someone said above they could mean death from perception changes.

I wouldnt go as far in saying they dont know what theyre talking about. They have to remain just a little bit politically correct.

At least appreciate the positive light theyre shining on LSD and pot.

If they talk about the medicinal effects acid has on cluster headache sufferers, then they surely will talk about mushrooms too.

i can see that, i'm sure someone has done somethihng retarded while tripping and died, where they might not have sober

people on this forum say they have drivin on shrooms, and those are only the people talking about it, here

and when people kill someone while drunk driving, it adds a stat to alcohol related deaths

makes sense to me :shrug:

but water can kill you too, and there is no warning on a water bottle lol

Sounds biased to me.

Its why I stopped watching the history channel.
I hope National geographic gets their shit together.

are humans invincible while on a head full of shrooms?

cause if thats true i'm gonna eat 1/2 oz and box some cops, then laugh as the bullets bounce off of me

i'm a little bias myself too, i think people should be cautious and ponder there actions before dosing on shrooms

even if that means vaguely claiming something is dangerous

Psychedelics can dramatically raise heart rate and give loads of physical symptoms related to strong emotions this could cause a heart attack for sure.

So they would be dying of a heart attack, not an overdose of shrooms.
Having a heart attack usually is because of a pre-existing health condition; smoking, obesity, etc. The shrooms themselves didn't cause the heart attack, they just induced it, as would an intense game of basketball or going for a run.

This.

I don't see how shrooms can harm anyone, that is unless you are retarted enough to take them an environment that could risk getting you killed.
