    It's a type of ground dried mushroom that we've used for millennia as a topical wound dressing.  But the mushrooms themselves are also edible.  So I thought I might try adding them to my diet, and see what happens.

      of mushroom, not that I can get it around these parts?

      •  I'd have to look up the Latin name . . . (0+ / 0-)

        (I always forget it), but its ordinary name is birch polypore.  We use it and stump puffballs as wound dressings - and they work better than anything Pharma has ever developed, let me tell you.  But in Europe (France, IIRC, but don't hold me to that; my memory is shot lately) they're now studying birch polypore as a cancer treatment specifically because of its anti-inflammatory properties.
