From the very beginning of our civilization, man has used mushrooms to produce fermented foods and medicines. In ancient Egypt and Rome, fermentation was considered a gift from the gods. Also Asians have attributed curative properties from mushrooms; there are Chinese texts from around 500 BC, reporting the general medicinal and anti-cancer properties of Ganoderma extracts, which have been passed from generation to generation. This book focuses on several topics that include the botany, the chemistry, the pharmacology and toxicology of the Agaricus blazei mushroom. (Imprint: Nova)
