LL, thanks. It's an idea. Black fungus is probably a little more adventurous than I tend to get.

SF might be a little out of my way though as I'm in Nova Scotia.

"The next day, the doctors started to cut into her, but couldn't control the bleeding. So they sewed her back up and rescheduled the surgery. I'm not sure who made the connection to the mushrooms they had eaten the night before."

A relative of ours recently had a similar experience, and was told that they suspected he'd consumed too much vitamin K, which can also act as a blood thinner.

Makes you wonder though, since we've always tried to make a special effort to include more vitamin K in our diets by eating greens, spinach, brocolli etc...

Diet, nutrition, and pharmacology seem to be intricately connected, with so much still unknown about how diet influences the mind and body.

My partner gets discouraged because the knowledge and research is sketchy and controversial in some areas. For example, one day coffee isn't good for you, the next day it is.

I keep telling her that we still need to try to learn as much as we can by trying as best we can to evaluate the quality and quantity of research.
