If you are unfamilar with Paul Stamets ... this is a MUST read ...

June 12, 2015 - If there's anything you read - or share - let this be it. The content of this article has potential to radically shift the world in a variety of positive ways.

And as Monsanto would love for this article to not go viral, all we can ask is that you share, share, share the information being presented so that it can reach as many people as possible.

In 2006, a patent was granted to a man named Paul Stamets. Though Paul is the world's leading mycologist, his patent has received very little attention and exposure. Why is that? Stated by executives in the pesticide industry, this patent represents "the most disruptive technology we have ever witnessed." And when the executives say disruptive, they are referring to it being disruptive to the chemical pesticides industry.

What has Paul discovered? The mycologist has figured out how to use mother nature's own creations to keep insects from destroying crops. It's what is being called SMART pesticides. These pesticides provide safe & nearly permanent solution for controlling over 200,000 species of insects - and all thanks to the 'magic' of mushrooms.

I didn't see the link in your post - maybe you want to add it so it doesn't get lost in the comments.

You needn't give me credit for the link - I just noticed that it wasn't in the article that you posted.

I also tweeted it (the ted talk) and sent copies to several groups:

Avaaz

Physicians for Social Responsibility

Union of Concerned Scientists

Sierra Rise

NRDC

Food & Water Watch

and to Bernie Sanders

I did watch the video that's why I'm asking about the product development it looks like he has held the patent for awhile now.
