Age Less / Live More

Fungi have played an important role both in culinary and medicinal traditions for thousands of years, but these magical living organisms are often overlooked - for both good and bad reasons - when it comes to the future of our health and planet. What if a new heat-loving fungus takes over? What if a fungus holds the key to an anti-cancer vaccination? We explore these questions and more with our guest on this week’s podcast. 

Listen and learn:

  • About the microbial differences between bacteria, yeast, and fungi
  • The known vs. unknown mystery of fungi
  • Risks of future fungal outbreaks
  • Rewards of potential medicines and cures
