"Tasty mushrooms from dirty diapers"

15 06 11 - 11:29

For lunchtime reading!

Changing a dirty diaper isn't a fun job. Eating a diaper is even less fun, but luckily there is a fungi that can do just that.

Oyster mushrooms, Pleurotus ostreatus, can devour 90% of a disposable diaper within two months, observed Alethia Vázquez-Morillas of the Autonomous Metropolitan University in Mexico City in the journal Waste Management.

What's more, the mushrooms grown on diapers are edible. Vázquez-Morillas has dined upon them herself.

“They are cleaner than most of the vegetables you can find in the market, at least in Mexico,” said Vázquez-Morillas in an interview with the Economist. - Thrilling Dithkovery.com

While this is a nifty move, it only appeals to the dogmatic greens. Better to compost those diapers and grow the mushrooms elsewhere, and reduce land use. That last part alone is the only needed step.

your "philosophical point" here is kind of stretch. even as a regular reader this particular post just seems like a rant against a lifestyle you don't like. rly? - 16-06-’11 12:15
I think the Anus staff should be aware of the ongoing debate on whether a subgenre is called speed metal or thrash metal to refer to bands like Metallica, Exodus, Slayer. Also the term here used as thrash versus crossover. It's annoying to find out that the "rest of the world" thinks we the anus readers have our facts wrong instead of the other way around. A well researched article about this issue would be relevant for all the metal community. Rico - 17-06-’11 06:48
I think your missing the point, now poor, impoverished parents will be able to feed their children with nutrient-rich mushrooms that can grow on their diapers. They'll never run out of food for their children and babies now. You fascists will never realize that. Dave - 17-06-’11 20:09
