Amateur mushroom gatherers be aware....[CA]

November "Friday the 13th", 2009 - Examiner.com

SAN FRANCISCO,CA,---Several people from California's central valley, who ate wild mushrooms known as death caps, are spending time in a local hospital, according to local authorities.

Amanita Phalloides(death caps), is a fungus that grows near beach and oak trees and enjoys a rich acid soil. It can cause dehydration, nausea, vomiting, severe kidney damage and liver damage, resulting in a coma and death when eaten and not treated right away.

If you find mushrooms growing in among live oak trees, you can be sure it is a death cap mushroom. These are mushrooms with a greenish type caps and white gills, which shows their toxicity, have now spread throughout the Bay Area.

If you decided to go mushroom hunting, know your mushrooms, even professional mushroom gathers have been fooled. My brother, who liked mushrooms, was with a group of professional mushroom gathers found several death caps in their collection---even, they, for some reason, did not recognized  the deadly mushrooms.

Because of the latest rain, in the Bay Area, wild mushrooms are appearing in greater quantities and are lasting longer because of the cool temperatures. As one professional mushroom gather said, "You must know your mushrooms, and have another professional mushroom gather check you collections." Remember, "It's your liver and kidneys that can be damaged!"
