How Mushrooms Can Save the World-And put Monsanto Out of Business

WRITTEN BY: Robert Woodard
Paul Stamets, a leading mycologist, has discovered a way to keep insects off crops without the need for chemical-pesticides. Stamets' The following content is from disinfo.com "Paul Stamets Holds the Patent That Could Put Monsanto Out of Business."

The website asks that we "share, share, share the information being presented so that it can reach as many people as possible."

See what you think. And ask Paul to share the scientific details.

In 2006, a patent was granted to a man named Paul Stamets. Though Paul is the world's leading mycologist, his patent has received very little attention and exposure. Why is that? Stated by executives in the pesticide industry, this patent represents "the most disruptive technology we have ever witnessed." And when the executives say disruptive, they are referring to it being disruptive to the chemical pesticides industry.

What has Paul discovered? The mycologist has figured out how to use mother nature's own creations to keep insects from destroying crops. It's what is being called SMART pesticides. These pesticides provide safe & nearly permanent solution for controlling over 200,000 species of insects - and all thanks to the ‘magic' of mushrooms.

Paul does this by taking entomopathogenic Fungi (fungi that destroys insects) and morphs it so it does not produce spores. In turn, this actually attracts the insects who then eat and turn into fungi from the inside out!

This patent has potential to revolutionize the way humans grow crops - if it can be allowed to reach mass exposure.

OK. All well and good. But let's see the goods.
