As humanity becomes more conscious to the language of nature, it is clear that mushrooms in their many forms come in peace and are here to help. The uses, benefits, and applications of mushrooms currently seem to be limitless cutting across all industries, cultures, and modalities. Embraced by the medical community, gardeners, architects, spiritualist, religions and others, their boundaries are yet to be found.

The intricate matrix of mushroom mycelium under our feet represents rebirth, rejuvenation, and regeneration. It waits patiently to reveal secrets for those with the courage to sidestep mainstream assumptions in search of something better. Fungi are the grand molecular disassemblers in nature, decomposing plants and animals, creating forests…they’re soil magicians, according to Paul Stamets, world renown mycologist.

Presenting at the recent Bioneers Annual Conference, Paul Stamets gave bombshell evidence that there is hope for bees, colony collapse, and our entire ecosystem. Washington State University recently completed a longevity stress test on bee populations that appears to confirm that the genes for the detoxification pathways in bees are turned on by beneficial fungi they collect from their environment. What’s more, it has been confirmed in previous testing that the red belted polypore mushroom degrades pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides.

It has also been confirmed in previous tests that fungicidal contamination reduces beneficial fungi in honey bee colonies. So what does this all mean? The widespread pesticide, herbicide, and fungicide have created an absence of beneficial fungi in bee colonies. This turns off the proper detoxification pathways within the bees and their colonies leading to a hyper-accumulation of toxins. Colony collapses typically follows shortly thereafter.
What appears to hold a key to slowing down or even stopping the current epidemic of bee colony collapse is a solution called “Mycohoney,” made from the polypore mushroom mycelium. When fed to bees in the University of Washington trials, it showed extraordinary significance in life extension of the honey bees. Walter S. Sheppard, PhD P.F. Thurber Professor, Chair, Department of Entomology Washington State University gave this comment:

“As an entomologist with 39 years’ experience studying bees, I am unaware of any reports of materials that extend the life of worker bees more than this.”

Of course there are many other benefits of mushrooms that go beyond bee-support. Shiitake mushrooms, for example, are an excellent source of some important vitamins and minerals. For starters, they have three B vitamins, B2, B5 and B6, and six important trace minerals: phosphorous, selenium, copper, zinc, potassium, magnesium, and manganese. What’s more, researchers say these mushrooms could hold the key to cervical cancer in women.

Additionally, a Chinese mushroom seems to offer hope to some pet owners in the treatment of hemangiosarcoma, an aggressive cancer that shortens life to a matter of days. The compound has been found to extend the lifespans of cancer-stricken dogs by Researchers believe the mushroom could eventually help humans in the fight against cancer as well.

    Good information on Mushrooms and bees but please do not fall for the brainwashing that man is the evil of Earth. The mindset this man is installing into your mind (either by design or ignorance) has been devised by the Venetian Arsenal to aid their Malthusian genocide veiled by the eco-cult of green policies pushed by the likes of Prince Charles (future New Doge of New Venice) and sheep-dipped Jesuit, Ottmar Edenhofer. I should point out that it is claimed by some that Ebola has never existed in nature and has in fact always been a biological weapon. The current Ebola issue is a biological weapon tied to the George Soros and Bill Gates via the Kenema biological weapons laboratory in Kenema Hospital. So do not believe the Ebola problem right now is the Earth getting its own back on humans, that would be utter nonsense. There hasn’t been any proof that bats have been spreading Ebola and yet again we constantly hear the same old lies, It is no different to the cover-up lies claiming green monkeys spread AIDS in Africa. Make a note that organic bee hives do not suffer any colony collapse so is it the environment or is it the artificial chemical/GMO hiving? The big problem with non-organic hives is they feed the bees genetically modified corn syrup as well as mess with the Queen bee’s cycle. If you give the hive what it really needs as of times of old then there would be no colony collapse. So if we replace the GMO poisons and instead give a natural mushroom based sugar honey then what do you get? You will get a more natural hive and thus less if any collapse (as long as you do not mess with the Queen bee’s cycles). So what is the benefit of this? The only benefits are that you may make a stronger than usual hive compared to any others due to these wonderful mushrooms being an addition. What you are not doing is understanding the real problem and it would be a nice way to veil up recent bad practices and conveniently forget about them. Do you understand? Always sit back and use common sense especially in this case when you know organic hives do not suffer any problems.
