Cobweb mold = death?
    #651844 - 05/29/02 06:40 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

If you get cobweb mold (i'm not sure if i have yet since it's only like 45% colonized) and you eat the shrroms from that cake will you get really really sick/die? is it possible for mushies to even form on the cake?

While death is possible, it is unlikely. You may have some new mold/bacteria that looks like cobweb, but is in fact some newly evolved toxin, you never know, it is possible. Fruiting bodies can be present as long as there is some amount of mycelium. There are many debates over whether or not mushrooms grown on contaminated substrate are safe to ingest, but the general saying is "When in doubt, throw it out..." If you really want to, nobody can stop you, but if you can wait for another batch to colonize, do so, wait, it could end up saving you a lot of pain (assuming you ingest a harmful toxin alongside the fruiting bodies). I would suggest not eating them, despite having the temptation to do otherwise myself.

sigh this is asked every day. Do not eat moldy shroosm or shrooms growing from a nasty cake.

Most likely cob web wouldnt cause a problem. But some may be severly allergic to it. Is it really worth gambling on yer health to get high?

This is the only time I really feel alive.

Stupid stupid stupid question.

Would you eat contaminated food? Why is it that several times a month some idiot asks this same question? Is it worth the risk just to get high?

Remember kiddies... when in doubt, throw it out!

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

well, ive eaten bread with a bit of mold on it, on multiple occations. When I toke up and get the munchies that only a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich can cure, a bit of mold on some bread sure as hell aint gonna stop me!
