Medicinal Mushrooms & Cancer
Paul Stamets at TEDMED
Magical Mushrooms: Is the world ready for this tour? The mushroom biologist talks about the antimicrobial properties of fungi, how they can be used as potent insecticides, and how they may help boost the human immune system.
Paul Stamets discusses his personal story with his mother, diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. Too weak to undergo most traditional treatments, Staments describes apoptosis using “Turkey Tail” or Trametes versicolor – also known as Coriolus versicolor and Polyporus versicolor as an immune booster.
