Could the Scleroderma Mushroom actually cause Scleroderma?

Hi Dimarzio,

 

Well, I've never heard of mushrooms or the spoors from mushrooms as a cause of scleroderma; I would imagine that it gets its name (Scleroderma Citrinum) from the hard skin on the outside of it.

 

Mind you, I wouldn't think it would do you much good if you cooked it and put it on toast; apparently it can cause a very violent digestive upset in the stomach of anyone foolish enough to eat it!

Dimarzio,

 

To break it down we look at the root words. Sclero meaning "Hard" and derma meaning "Skin".

 

I'm fairly certain we just have Greyscale...
