Fungi are far more mysterious than plants,” says Robert Beelman, director of the Penn State Center for Plant and Mushroom Foods for Health. He led a recent study showing that two common antioxidants in some mushrooms—ergothioneine and glutathione—have the potential to help ward off diseases that come with aging, such as heart disease and Alzheimer’s. Some species are famous for their hallucinogenic properties. Others, like the mushrooms shown here, not only are appreciated by chefs but also show therapeutic value. Perhaps in the future, superfoods won’t be just plants but also fungi."https://www.nationalgeographic.com/magazine/2018/03/explore-mushrooms-superfood-medicinal-fungi/

"It might seem a bit uncomfortable that the familiar electrons, protons, and neutrons that make up the atoms and molecules that constitute the earth, our homes, all of our tools, and our bodies and brains add up to only 15 percent of the matter in the universe. In fact the true picture is even more extreme: When scientists account for the presence of “dark energy,” an equally mysterious concept, ordinary matter accounts for less than 5 percent of the stuff of the universe. It’s almost as if ordinary matter and the universe that we can see in the night sky is just a sideshow, an afterthought of creation. Indeed, it’s clear that in the early eons of the universe, it was the dark matter that clumped together first, and then its gravitational pull caused ordinary matter to fall into those clumps and ignite to form the stars and galaxies that we can observe."http://alliance.nautil.us/article/240/the-mystery-of-dark-matter
