Mary EschBE GRATEFUL for fungus. Sure, it's to blame for athlete's foot, mouldy bread and that slimy mildew on your shower curtain. But without fungi, there would be no beer, no penicillin, no Gorgonzola cheese. And we'd be up to our necks in dead plants and animals if there were no fungi to rot them. In fact, fungus has had a key role in human history. Just ask George Hudler, professor of plant pathology at Cornell University. Better yet, read his book.
