The renowned mycologist and genius discoverer of immunological and bioremedial properties of mushrooms, Paul Stamets unveils his latest breakthrough research. Since our emergence from Africa, mushrooms have represented a thread of knowledge – critical for human survival as medicine, fire portability and the regeneration of forests. His latest epiphany is MycoHoney, made by bees that sip mycelium droplets, which prolongs worker bee longevity, detoxifies the hive, and could prevent colony collapse disorder, as well as our own. While humanity has demonstrated its adeptness in choosing to operate in manners that are exactly the opposite of our best interest, we are discovering better ways to work in harmony with nature. Paul shares his optimism-inspiring findings in regards to bee health and fungus, among other things.
