No. And I've never seen a study to suggest liver damage.

Possible mental problems.

Shrooms don't cause any liver damage, heh, sorry to say. I don't believe there are any proven physical longterm effects, the only effects that last are the mental ones, and that would of course depend on the person, any preexisting mental conditions, their family's history of such mental conditions, their mindset at the time, etc. Generally, psilocybin is a very safe substance to most users, much safer than the legal drugs such as nicotine and alcohol, and does not cause cancer or damage the livers or any of the other countless devasting effects of modern legal drugs

well, as far as the relations of mental issues in the family, my mom is schizophrenic, and I'm doing fine.

I've never seen any evidence on it, not to say that there isn't, but I suppose it's just something you inherit....... although over time i believe my mom just lost it. She was in her 30's and had lots of bad things happen to her.

Warning: Mushrooms may cause you to have a new found appreciation for the little miracles in your life and may cause you to expand your own acceptance and understanding of the world. Other side effects are increased motivation and self-satisfaction, but varies from person to person. Some people have reported mental illnesses, but these people have had a predisposition to mental illness and were very uncommon.

all those are mental effects, so i guess there are no physical effects which is good.  it just makes it easier to know that there are no bad physical effects to prove people wrong who say that shrooms are bad for you. so almost without exception, if you trip in a safe environment with a sitter and are not prone to mental illness, then shrooms are almost harmless, right?

i wouldnt care if there was a bad physical effect anyway, because most drugs have at least one. its almost like the mushrooms are saying: EAT ME  :mushroom2: :mushroom2:

and bad gas, but those are temporary, nothing really damaging.

As to the other poster, yeah, those are only mental effects, that's my point, I can't think of anything to lose, and everything to gain.

For a serious answer: The only potential health threat I have experienced is having my hands swell. This is something that I would think does not happen unless one is allergic, or bitten by a rattler. Perhaps it was because I ate a BUNCH more after going to the moon... I don't know. But it was real, my sober wife saw it. Since then, every time I take shrooms I notice they swell a tiny bit.


But unless you wear a ring, you would probably not even become aware of it.

BOTTOM LINE: The jury is still out on this one. I'm conducting an experiment pretty soon. Gonna make 4 people shroom, and take measurements and notes on all of them. Blood pressure, temp, etc. We'll see yet about the swelling and any other potential affects.
