    #3211694 - 10/04/04 12:13 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

anyone out there know if inhaling the purple/brown spores of the mushrooms can make you sick?
i know that the mold spores can make you ill but how about the ones from the strains that we actually want to grow?

They don't. Think about when you eat dried shrooms, you'd probably inadvertently inhale thousands, so I'd say its safe.

There are actually very few spores that will make you sick by inhalation. Everyday during the spring and summer i'm sure you inhale millions of spores. its just the few that can make you sick you have to be worried about. As far as your mycological adventures go you really only need to worry about contams that sporulate (release spores) that you can't id you need to worry about. In general though I don't suggest using caution in handling any contaminated cake/casing/culture.

It's a good question. If you have a warehouse-sized grow room of psilos, there could be issues. Anyone can develop allergies to just about anything. It's pretty well known that oyster farm workers take spore exposure very seriously. Some folks can wallow in the stuff and never have a problem. Sometimes it takes a few years of exposure, then BAM. . .
In the levels that most people play with at home, the exposure is minimal and infrequent. That doesn't mean zero risk, as allergies are a fickle thing.

IMO, it's safe to not worry about it.
