There are more species of fungi than plants and animals combined. Fungi can help humanity and the environment in so many ways. Fungi are used as medicine, and new compounds are being discovered all the time. They can clean up oil spills, purify watersheds, and metabolize radiation! They are one of the cheapest, yet most nutritious forms of protein on the planet, can be cultivated ethically, and with very little impact on the environment. Fungi can turn local waste products into building materials and other materials, providing eco-friendly, insulative, and fire resistant products.
