The dirt on mushrooms.

by Bella (inspired by Jack)

We’re related to mushrooms. Jack broke the news to me just this morning. Will this show up in his genetic test? Well, considering that we share a common ancestor around 600 million years ago, probably not.

It’s true, according to a post on Mark’s Daily Apple.  Mushrooms are neither plant for animal Though more closely related to us than to a potato, they may not bare a resemblance with the exception of the Mario Bros. character, Toady, but apparently they have neurotransmitters just like us thinking mammals.

So the question is, “Are mushrooms still a vegan food?” Something to ponder.

If you’re curious and/or intrigued, like I was, check out the short, informative and to-the-point post here.

Even Toady was surprised to find out we’re related.
