Fungi Perfecti - Interesting to say the least.

Oyster mushrooms producing on oil contaminated soil (1–2% = 10,000–20,000 ppm). Soil toxicity reduced in 16 weeks to less than ~ 200 ppm, allowing for plants, worms and other species to inhabit whereas control piles remained toxic to plants and worms.


THE PROBLEM: OIL IS A COMPLEX MIXTURE OF TOXIC HYDROCARBONS

Not many people, even experts, fully grasp the diverse range of toxins that are present in oil. Bunker C oil is used as a fuel, particularly in cargo ships, and is especially ‘dirty’. Here is a list of some of the hydrocarbons typically found in Bunker C oil:

You are my newest ATS hero. Care to forward your findings to Gov. Jindal or Representative Melancon?

I'm sure these two fine gentlemen from Louisiana would be quite interested in this information.

Nature always make a way. Thanks for pointing that out!

Now, where to get the spores?
