What is a Mushroom?

All mushrooms are fungi, but not all fungi are mushrooms.  For those fungi that produce them, the mushroom plays a similar role to a flower or a fruit in plants.  Some part of each mature mushroom produces microscopic spores. The rest of the fungal organism typically lives in the soil, wood, or some other material and is composed of thread-like strands known as mycelium.

Edible mushrooms
Mushrooms are used extensively in cooking, in many cuisines. Though neither meat nor vegetable, mushrooms are known as the "meat" of the vegetable world.

Medicinal mushrooms
Some mushrooms or extracts are used or studied as possible treatments for diseases. Currently, several extracts have widespread use in Japan, Korea and China, as adjuncts to radiation treatments and chemotherapy. They have been studied in modern medical research since the 1960s, where most studies use extracts, rather than whole mushrooms.
