Format: Paperback
Greg Marley's "Mushrooms for Health" gives detailed information about the immune system and how mushrooms can improve immune function, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, and fight cancer. It is a needed update to the currently available offerings with up to date scientific research.

It should be noted that most of the mushrooms discussed are quite easy to find and identify. Many are also real good food.

This book is really a wonderful source of information about medicinal mushrooms. I think it is the most informative book about some of the most common medicinal mushrooms since Paul Stamets' "MycoMedicinals." I was very pleased while reading to find that the author really included as much folklore and common usage as possible about each individual species covered in this book. Oftentimes, it is hard to find in any one source, details about historical usage and modern scientific research. There is a wealth of information collected and presented here in a not-too-small, not-too-big book.

Fantastic book -- a slim volume, with a few well-reproduced pictures inside -- hugely informative. Good for all northeasterners, and especially Mainers -- we have a lot to be proud of in Greg Marley!

I found this to be a great resource for anyone interested in harvesting and using mushrooms to improve or maintain health. I am an avid mushroom hunter already familiar with all the mushrooms covered in the book but still found the information to be both fascinating and useful. I did not realize some of the common fungus I would normally pass by had so many health properties. I own many mushroom guides, this is definitely one of my favorites.

Great book. Shipped prompt.I collect wild mushrooms myself although mostly Chaga, Maitake and Shaggy Mane. Many people remain scared of wild mushrooms but great information leads to more interest. I believe many cancers can be cured by many different mushrooms. Marley brings to light many great aspects of mushroom use.
