Okay, so, someone told me....
    #2871041 - 07/09/04 01:16 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Someone told me that since I'm allergic to mold, if I ate shrooms, that they would kill me. This, I think, is complete and total bullshit, because I've eaten shrooms before. But, I can't convince a couple of my friends that I'm not putting myself in any more danger than the usual person by eating shrooms.
So does anyone know if there's any truth to this? If you're allergic to mold, do shrooms have a different effect on you?

Long story short, if the shrooms have been contaminated with a mold that you're allergic too, it's trouble.

It's not likely that any given batch of shrooms is going to have been, but it's possible.

If you do choose to take them anyways, make sure your source is reliable, and not going to sell you shrooms that have been contamed.

I don't know that I'm allergic to any specific mold. I have seasonal allergies and when the mold levels are high, I'm affected. I know that some molds have a worse affect than others, because occasionally, but rarely, I'm not affected at all.

If you're allergic to mold you're not going to be allergic to mushrooms per se. Mold and mushrooms are loosley related. 95% of people who are allergic to mold are allerigic to the spores.

Anyhow, Kasumeat is very right. you still could be taking a risk.

If you really want to find out if you're allergic to mushrooms, you can do a scratch test.

Simply make two scratches on your arm, a centimeter or two apart. Tape or hold a piece of fresh (or moistened dry) mushroom over one of the scratches. (Ideally, you want to expose the inside of the mushroom to the scratch. So you'd place the sliced part of the shroom against the scratch, or you could powder some dry shrooms and make a poultice.) Take it off fifteen minutes later. If you've got more redness and swelling at the site of the shroomed scratch, then you've got an allergy to something in the mushrooms.

Of course, since you've partaken of shrooms before with no ill effects, it's unlikely that you're allergic.

Hey, that's a real good idea. A friend of mine thinks he's allergic, also...I'm gonna tell him that.

Thanks
