The Catskill Mountains, upstate New York, are filled with magical, mysterious, and healing mushrooms as the summer nights turn into autumn. “Toadstool”, a name that refers to the numerous mushrooms that sprout between rains is more appropriate, while “fungi”, is a more technical term. Fungi refer to plants, but are not plants with roots or plants that contain chlorophyll. Mushrooms are a perfect addition to any witch’s dish. They can take on strange forms, some of which may be very sexually suggestive. However, you’ll need to find other reasons for mushrooms being a part of your regular diet.

It’s true. It is true. We are not sure why. Perhaps because fungi are able to find and concentrate the trace minerals needed for strong, healthy immune systems. You could also attribute it to their rich supply of polysaccharides (interesting complex sugars which appear to be all-round health-promoters). The mushrooms are rich in protein and B vitamins. They also have low calories and very little sodium. One could also single out the anticancer, antitumor and antibacterial compounds found within the stalk, caps or gills of all edible mushrooms.
Cook your mushrooms well. Scientists from the University of Nebraska Medical School have found that mice who ate endless amounts of raw mushrooms, Agaricus bisporus, developed significantly more malignant tumors during their lives than mice who ate control foods.
