Paul Stamets (previously discussed here) says mushrooms are potent antiviral and antibacterial agents, and they also might end up saving the Earth. I wonder what the fungi would say (or sing.) [Via Disinformation.]

Paul Stamets keeps on top of the mushroom research.

So it is not Paul making the claims so much as Paul reporting the works of others.
