How do you clean up a toxic spill in a stream? With mushrooms mycielium placed a burlap bag! Mushrooms are proving to be useful for much more than simply an addition to a meal. Paul Stamets predicted in "Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms" that one day mushrooms would be grown on toxic ground, to assist in clean up operations. As described in this article by Paul himself www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/9605201, mushrooms now clean up toxic sites and additional medicinal uses continue to be found.
