national income is helped so much by truffle sales, it is called their 13th
month. With weapons sales, perfumes, fashions, and other exotic exports, this
is saying a lot. China
has taken over the world market with Agaricus bisporus (the commercial
"Button" mushroom). Japan has been the world's leader in Shiitake
cultivation, but because of increasing demand in this country, many Shiitake
farms are now springing up here in America. Take for instance the
" Three River Farms" mushroom company. The
following was taken from #15 "TMC" July 95: "The mushroom
company started just 3 years ago. It was started in a lumber yard "gone
bad" due to slack of housing construction. They called me saying they were
about to lose everything, and could they grow any mushrooms. To me, they were
sitting on a gold mine with all that wood they could not sell. The company
grows Shiitake on wood. They expect of make $2.5 million in 1995. They use 8
tons of sawdust every 3 weeks. With the help of 22 employees, they produce
3,500 Ibs. of Shiitake every week. They expect to produce 10,000 Ibs. a week by


AND RESEARCH COMPOUNDS : This huge new market is not even part of the $900
million quoted earlier. Their worth is staggering. Phalloidin for instance is
now going for over $100 per mg. Keep in mind that there are 1,000 mgs. in ONE
gram! That's $100,000 a gram! Look it up in any chemical supply catalog, like
SIGMA. If you, or your company's area of business or research is in this field,
you may qualify to enter this new and very profitable unique market. New AIDS
research with Maitake mushrooms have caused this mushroom to bring as much as
$300 a pound when this was discovered. You will have little or no competition
in this market.

These compounds include antibiotics, antitumor agents, antiviral agents, and
even anticancer agents. One of the anticancer agents, Lentinan, showed 80%
remission factor in Sarcoma and other related cancers, with just a 10 day
treatment. If Lentinan was applied before cancer implant, it was 100%
effective. Panaeolus subbalteatus, a psilocybin producing mushroom, has shown
to be effective against polio virus in mice. Other psilocybin producing
mushrooms are now believed to have powers of improving hearing, eyesight,
circulation, and activating the body's immune system, even correcting “Cluster
Headaches”.   Enoke Mushrooms show Cancer remission (#77 TMC
January 2008).  There have been stories reported that certain people who
live down in some of the valleys in Mexico , live to be 130 to 140
years old. There is evidence now being gathered which points to Mexican
mushroom cults as the source for these stories. We at FMRC do not think eating
any mushroom is going to make you live to 130. However, if certain mushrooms do
enhance the immune system, you would not die as easily from colds, flu, or
other ailments which strike old people down so many times. The late Dr. Pollock
believed that the mushroom Psilocybe tampanensis held great potential for
psychotherapy and treatment of asthma patients. Mushroom RNA has shown to be
effective against influenza. Interferon stimulating properties are even now
being found.


are now building up a client list in need of these compounds. The true fact is,
the medical people who want these mushrooms for extraction purposes, do not
know how to identify them, much less, grow them in their labs. This is where
you can play a very important role. If you have been able to cultivate
mushrooms, you have a very special talent. If you are of this caliber, you know
it is a special talent. Growing a mushroom is not growing a tomato plant. If
you wish to do your own extractions, no complicated lab equipment or knowledge
is needed. These extractions are done very easily. FMRC makes available
reference texts giving all the simple directions you will need. Having the
organic material (the Mushrooms) from which to do the extractions is the
problem. If you can cultivate the mushroom from which you wish to do the
extractions, you have solved the problem. If you know where to collect these
mushrooms from the wild, you have solved the problem. This is why these
extractions are worth so much. The people who want these mushrooms and their
extractions pay good prices. Besides, the cost is tax deductible as an expense
to them.

We are looking for people with this kind of insight. We wish to have
independent growers from which we can purchase needed mushrooms, or refer other
clients to them. We do not wish to have any kind of exclusive agreement. This
allows you to do business with any firm you want. You sell your product to
anyone you want to.
