just curious...

Ok so for "hunting mushrooms" it says we can eat up as long as we have proper identification, but for cultivating, it says if we have any contamination to throw away the cake and not to eat any mushrooms that grew on a contaminated cake....
But out in nature we wouldnt know if there were any other forms of bacteria or fungus in the mycelium (which I don't see why there wouldnt be anything else under there) so how is it that we can eat the mushroom we find out in nature when we are unsure of the possible contamination of the mycelium, yet we can't eat the mushroom growing on a contaminated cake.... have people acutally died from that...or just gotten really sick?

The risk is low because fruits that have been picked outdoors shouldn't have an abundance of any one pathogen, or an abundance of the toxins they would produce as waste or for protection.

Should the US relegalize drugs?

Nature has it's own continuous process that deals with contamination around mushrooms.
Our homes are filled with bacteria that in small amounts our bodies are able to defend against. If you cutivate indoors you provide the perfect environment for those unhealthy little buggers to multiply.

Would you want to volunteer to be the first fatality from eating the shrooms from that green/black casing you just made? Be safe... if it's contaminated, that can't be a good thing... so toss it.
