  • Mushrooms that are eaten by snails or other insects are not necessarily edible: there are animals with a different organism from ours that can eat poisonous mushrooms
  • Fungi do not become poisonous by only contact with poisonous animals or plants or when they grow under certain plants rather than others
  • The poisonousness of mushrooms is not given by the vividness of the colors, by the smell, by their viscidity, by the change in color: many poisonous and lethal mushrooms do not reflect these characteristics
  • Completely white mushrooms with a pleasant taste are not always edible: among them we find the spring Amanita which is one of the most poisonous and certainly deadly mushrooms.

  • Even if they are dried, the mushrooms do not lose their poisonous properties: with drying, the mushrooms lose only their water and, on the contrary, what remains has an even higher concentration of poison.
  • Do not pick mushrooms when they are still small because it becomes more difficult to recognize them and therefore understand what type they are.
