There are more than 50 thousand types of mushroom live in tropical region, southern and northern hemispheres.


They are used for many purposes, include medical and food resources. Surprisingly that not very much percentage are poisonous, around 1% to 2% of 50 thousand kinds only.


Many species of commercial mushrooms sold in the market. We could buy in the groceries or small stores or at farmer markets.
