Mushrooms are one of the most widely available and popular plant foods. What is it that’s so special about mushrooms, why should you consider adding them to your diet, which ones are best, and which should you avoid?
Mushrooms have been eaten and used medicinally for thousands of years, all around the world. Ancient Egyptians considered mushrooms to be plants of immortality and recognized them as a gift from the god Osiris. They valued mushrooms so highly, only the royals were allowed to consume them; commoners were forbidden to touch, much less eat them.
Based on the details of ancient rock paintings, some historians think that the use of magic mushrooms was alive and well in 9,000 BC among indigenous populations of North Africa. (I don’t know where those cave artists found tie-dye paint, but you can’t argue with science!) Furthermore, statues and art thought to represent mushrooms have been found in Mayan and Aztec ruins in Central America, establishing their ceremonial importance in the Americas over many thousands of years.
Today, mushrooms are growing in popularity worldwide due to their nutritional properties and versatile uses in the kitchen. While annual consumption of mushrooms in the United States stabilized at an average of three pounds per person in the decade ending in 2015, the market has been growing steadily since and is projected to grow even faster globally over the next several years.
But what makes mushrooms so special? Are they good for the environment too? And what about poisonous and psychedelic mushrooms? How do you avoid the former and not take the latter by accident? And will I be able to stop myself from making at least one “fun guy” joke for the rest of this article? (Continued at source …)

The Top 4 Contributors To Getting Alzheimer’s Disease – By Author Pam Popper
Overmedicated, overfed, and malnourished, most Americans fail to realize the answer to lower disease rates doesn’t lie in more pills but in the foods we eat.With so much misleading nutritional information regarded as common knowledge, from “everything in moderation” to “avoid carbs,” the average American is ill-equipped to recognize the deadly force of abundant, cheap, unhealthy food options that not only offer no nutritional benefits but actually bring on a disease.
In this lecture, Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D. ND, speaks about the dire state of American health—the result of poor nutrition choices stemming from food politics and medical misinformation. But, more important, she shares the key to getting and staying healthy for life.
Backed by numerous scientific studies, Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D., ND details how dietary choices either build health or destroy it.

I have received a number of emails pro and con masks. Plain and simple, masks will not prevent you from getting COVID-19. Even Saint Fauci, who the world seems to trust beyond Jesus, Buddha, or Muhammad, has admitted that he has even lied about herd immunity to try to manipulate society to get the vaccine, stated at the start of this masks do not work. He changes his opinions to match the desired political agenda. Anyone who listens to this guy probably still believes in Santa Claus and politicians really care.
There is a much more sinister objective behind the masks and social distancing. They will keep this going well into 2021 and the real objective is to prevent civil unrest. Schwab is already telling people if they do not accept his Agenda 2030, there will be revolutions. The restrictions with lockdowns are driving the poor into absolute poverty. Black unemployment was at a historic low in the United States under Trump. Lowering taxes creates more jobs. They are deliberately doing this to create civil unrest to justify Agenda 2030.
Meanwhile, the masks and social distancing are creating a permanent impact psychologically whereby some people from here on out, will look at others as being a threat to their health be it the flu or anything.
As one reader Paul writes, “If I were to write a book about the times we live in ‘scared stupid’ would be the title. Apparently, they think social distancing while skiing is also necessary. I can’t stop laughing. Not to mention, you normally ski 6 feet from someone as a courtesy anyway. ”
