Medicinal Mushrooms in a Nutshell - Attila Fodi - Bristol Fungus Day

Oct 05 2019 13:00 - 14:00

Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bath Rd, BS4 3EW Bristol

As part of Bristol Fungus Day we are delighted to have myco-medicine expert Attila Fodi presenting an introduction to this fascinating subject. 

Fungi have formed an important part of human medicine for many millennia, from the ancient Egyptian uses of Penicillium moulds to traditional Chinese medicinal uses of bracket fungi. Many of our modern antibiotics are produced by fungi, along with other ground-breaking drugs such as statins, immune suppressants and more. This talk will cover a general introduction of the main medicinal mushrooms, their active compounds, their role in folk medicine and modern evidence-based mycotherapy.

Attila Fodi is a Hungarian Field Mycologist specialising in medicinal mushrooms. He is author / co-author of two mycotherapy related books and several published articles.

Talks will be held in the Anglican Chapel, please turn up 10mins before the talk as we will be running a tight schedule!

All tickets are free, but any donations are appreciated! Billetto does add a small fee for donations.
