Mushrooms are currently examined for their potential as functional foods. At the same time, novel types of mushroom intoxications, such as rhabdomyolysis after prolonged consumption, have been described in edible species. The aim of the present study was to perform an acute toxicity test to establish if the most commonly cultivated species would have myo- or hepatotoxic effects. Mice (n=6/group) were exposed to 3, 6 or 9 g Agaricus bisporus, Lentinus edodes or Pleurotus ostreatus kg body mass… CONTINUE READING
