Which of These Mushrooms Could Kill You?

published on July 12, 2020

One of these mushrooms will make youhallucinate one could kill you and onewould be great in a stir-fry can youguess which is which not that easy rightunfortunately poisonous mushroomsusually aren't greatly colored like some

Other poisonous animals or plants whichmeans it takes some serious skill to beable to tell the difference betweenmushroom species so please do not eatrandom mushrooms because you watched aYouTube video all right time to test if

You can tell the difference betweenperfectly safe and perilously poisonousoh and let us know how you did in thecomments first up which one of thesewould you eat a or B mushroom B is knownas the death cap very few people die

From mushroom poisoning each year butwhen they do the death cap is usuallythe culprit just one mushroom could beenough to kill youthe death cap contains two moleculesthat bind to the enzyme RNA polymerase

Two RNA polymerase two normallytranscribes DNA into RNA which is thefirst step in making proteins with RNApolymerase to blocked your cells stopmaking proteins and start to dievomiting diarrhea and cramps will

Usually begin about 6 hours after eatingthe mushroom depending on the dose aftergetting through that you might start tofeel better but then your liver andother organs can start to shut down andyou could die species a on the other

Hand is totally edible now which ofthese would you eat a B or C mushroom ais edibleas long as it's cooked mushroom B can betoxicthanks to a compound called geometry in

Your body zero Metreon is ultimatelyconverted into a molecule called mmh mmhprevents gamma-aminobutyric acid or GABAfrom being created in your centralnervous system gaba helps regulate yourmuscle movement by decreasing signaling

Between your neurons if you have lessgaba in your system your neurons willstart signaling more which can causedeadly seizures luckily death by thismushroom is extremely rare but oddlyenough some people can actually eat

These raw and not get sick scientistsare still trying to figure this one outmushrooms see hold on can we see thatlast one again I promise these areactually different okay so if you choseC you're probably fine these mushrooms

Are generally considered edible and insome parts of the worldthey're sold in stores like any otheredible mushroom but they can cause anupset stomach and a lack of coordinationwhy we don't really know the chemistry

Isn't clear yet so we'll call this thewild card mushroom up next which wouldyou eat a or B if you chose a nice workthis is the Shaggy ink cap or shaggymane and it's edible if you chose B youmay be in trouble

It contains cop Rhine which isn't anissue unless you're washing it down withalcohol say you're drinking a beer theethanol is broken down into a toxicmolecule called acetaldehyde which isthen converted to non-toxic acetate and

Finally into carbon dioxide and waterwhich you exhale and pa cop Rhine blocksthe activity of aldehyde dehydrogenaseso acetaldehyde starts to accumulate andthat can poison your liver within 15minutes of drinking your heart will

Quickly start to race and beatirregularly you'll feel warm and beginto flush and your arms and legs willfeel heavy and might begin tingling andthe crazy thing is that if you drinkalcohol within even a few days of eating

The mushroom it can still affect youokay last one how about this cutemushroom you probably recognize thismushroom from Mario yep it's thatmushroom so is it edible toxic orhallucinogenic it's actually toxic and

Hallucinogenicwithin a couple hours of eating thismushroom you'll probably start to feeldizzy tired and begin to lose your senseof time as you start getting feelings ofeuphoria seeing brighter colors and

What's causing all thismostly I'm botanic acid and mousse KamalMews Kamal is better understood it'sprincipally responsible for the trip Ibotanic acid is also considered ahallucinogen but it's toxic as well it's

Been shown to cause brain lesions inmice rats and monkeys Mews Kamal and Ibotanic acid structures and activity arereally similar to a coupleneurotransmitters that are circulatingin your system one that gets your

Neurons firing and another that slowsthem down but unlike thoseneurotransmitters Meuse kamal and ibotanic acid can move into your brainand throw its chemistry for a loopsome people who want to eat the mushroom

And not trip out will boil it to try andget rid of noose kamal and i botanicacid but there's no guarantee that willwork so at the end of the day it turnsout that fungi are incredible chemistsand some of them have kind of a sick

Sense of humor so if it isn't alreadyclear don't just eat mushrooms that youfind in the woods leave that to theexperts and enjoy your stir-fry sansvomiting or totally tripping out
