Interesting study about heavy metal accumulation in mushrooms:

The results of the study, published this month in the journal Biometals, reveal that there are 'considerable' quantities of [...] thorium (Th) and uranium (U) in a hundred samples



Very cool!

Stamets wrote about using mushrooms to 'soak up' heavy metals in the environment, then sending them to be incinerated so the metals could be recycled.

Fun stuff, huh? Don't eat those Chernobyl mushrooms, though. :super:

Here is another study which indicates that most of the edible mushrooms that are grown or harvested may not be suitable for human consumption.

What isn't contaminated

Very interesting. It is said that the Agaricus genus is one of the most heavy metal's accumulator.

Interesting that japan, a major mushroom consumer, is nearly the only remaining nation to routinely incorporate burdock root in the diet. Burdock root is said to help eliminate heavy metals from the body.
Coincidence? ...perhaps

Sulfated polysaccharides, found in brown seaweed, bond to and remove heavy metals from the digestive system.  Some Japanese eat  a lot of seaweed. 

It may, for all I know be true of burdock too, but this was the first I'd heard about that.

After the Hiroshima and Nagasaki A-Bombings, native folks who survived and had significant seaweed in their diets had much less severe injury and illness from the radiation than those who ate less or none.

Burdock is a very effective pre-biotic because it contains inulin which, though indigestible to humans is edible by bifidobacteria, one of the preferred forms of intestinal flora.

Other foods that contain inulin include jerusalem artichoke, chicory root, and purple yams.  Onions and Garlic have small amounts too,

It is now used in greens plus and other such expensive supplements.

For this reason, I grow the jerusalem artichoke and buy the purple yams in chinatown. Dahlia tubers contain a lot, and they're edible....but I have yet to taste one.

In fact, I had purple yams with pork chops for dinner tonight, with this 946 gram Prince Mushroom, fried.  I found it growing in my back yard.


Notice how cleverly I steered the subject around to this Prince....so as not to brag.  :smile:

Good growing,

Jeff
