Please think about where you get your information

This is a photo of me from last October. I finished the mushroom tour by showing once again the fruiting bodies of the species.
I worked for years as a mushroom inspector in the market. I have written more than two thousand posts on mushrooms and nature. I did a local mushroom club as a volunteer for six years. I took hundreds of beautiful photos of mushrooms, because I love mushrooms.
When I started mushroom picking as a teenager, the first thing I did was go to the library and borrow a mushroom book. In Hungary, the mushroom picking has been on the rise since the 1950s, after the famine brought on by the World War, many people became ill and some died from wild-picked mushrooms. This is when the mushroom inspector service was set up in the markets. This is a service that has significantly reduced the number of mushroom poisonings. (Of course, despite the good books, I took my collected mushrooms to the local market specialist. I never ate a mushroom that I had not identified. And, of course, he only returned the ones that were edible to begin with.) Over the years there has been a growing demand for mushroom knowledge, many courses have been started and very nice mushroom books published.
So there are plenty of sources of information. Which is risky if you don't check the source of your information! I just read that an amateur shroomer bought a mushroom book online, written by AI.
Really be careful and check the publications! There is no room for error with wild mushrooms, because simple indigestion is bad enough from mildly poisonous mushrooms, and Amanita phalloides poisoning can kill you, see the sad Australian case not so long ago.
In my video from last autumn, I captured the urban death cap fruiting bodies.
