    The good and the VERY VERY BAD

    Golden chanterell mushrooms (yellow) very yummy.

    Destroying angel mushroom. (White with collar and bulb) VERY VERY BAD! One if the most toxic mushrooms in North America.

    The things we find kicking around in our woods.

    No antidote for destroying angle. One mushrooms can be fatal. Know your 'shrooms before you eat.

    Wow, so innocent looking, our dangerous ones are more dramatic.

    Our Chanterelles look a little different too.

    I love mushrooms. But, I would be terrified to make the personal call one what's safe and what's not. Definitely a knack thats passed down in person by somebody trusted.'

    I heard that there are some mushrooms where you eat a meal of them and you won't be hungry again for the rest of your life!

    That's a good one right there. jd
    It seems that people who do almost nothing, often complain loudly when it's time to do it.

    yes...just like you can eat any mushroom ONCE....... be careful out there folks.
    here in NZ we are pretty lucky...our two main species of field mushroom are easy to pick/identify pink or brown gills whit tops...and the horse mushrooms are the same just giant sized...somewhere between bread plate and dinner plate sized.

    I've been told many of the deaths from the avenging angel are from people from asia where they have a similar shroom that is edible.

    Coming back from town there was a pile of rocks just off the road a bit that weren't the right kind for the area. I hung a U turn and went back. Giant Puffballs, we had beef steak and mushroom steak for dinner.

    Amanita muscaria is the #1 bad one here but it's bright red, hard to miss.

    Oven roasted onions and channels, roasted Brussel sprouts with cracked black pepper and loads of rosemary and a roasted pork tenderloin. Mmmmm good!

    Is there a treatment for poisoning by death cap mushroom?
    Yes. Medical professionals treat poison victims with dialysis and penicillin, among other things. Many cases require liver or kidney transplants.

    The key to survival is seeking medical help immediately. The longer a person waits, the harsher the damage to the liver and kidneys.

    Scientists are looking into an injection of silibinin, a derivative of milk thistle, as a promising treatment. Silibinin stops the liver from taking in the poison. In Europe, it is an approved treatment, but not in the United States.

    Death cap is not the same as destroying angle. There is no antidote. There are treatments that can raise the survival rate.

    This. Totally agree which I why I won't even look, except in grocery stores. Thought about getting the logs to grow some from one of the schroom sites.

    I can say that silibinin and another compounded by the human pharmacy has repaired and kept my little terrier alive for about 6 months and she's still feeling fine.
    Vet tested here early in the year as she was going down quick and determined her liver was sick. Highest reading that he had taken from a living dog. two or so weeks into the treatment and she was back to normal. But I ain't trying any mushrooms I'm not sure of.....
