Fungi

There are several young mulberry trees on the property with this fungi growing on them. Fungi infect plants, animals and even other fungi. Athlete's foot and ringworm are two fungal diseases in humans. Drugs made from fungi cure diseases and stop the rejection of transplanted hearts and other organs. Fungi are also grown to produce flavorings for cooking, enzymes for removing stains and even for vitamins.
