The potential for using mushrooms in treatment has come up before in our discussions about shellfish growing areas. Here in the KGI area, we've been looking into mushrooms as a potential method for treating the fecal coliform bacteria in livestock waste.

He is also the author of Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save The World.
