For centuries we have known that some foods can heal and some can harm. Perhaps no food demonstrates both sides of that truism as well as mushrooms. Poisonous mushrooms can cause severe illness and even death, but others can improve health and treat disease. Of the 14,000 different types of mushrooms, a handful have incredible healing powers. Known as medical mushrooms, these select fungi have the therapeutic potential to ease many serious illnesses including cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer’s, and diabetes.
