It took I'd like to thank everybody for coming. It sounds OK, but go with me.

I'm going to be talking about medicinal mushrooms and cancer. This is a very, very large topic. We could talk about any one of these mushrooms probably for a couple of hours. So, unfortunately, like probably most of the previous speakers, we're going to have to hurry through a lot of material. My goal in this process is really going to be to try to pique your interest in exploring the possibility and potential healing, give some medicinal mushrooms. As you see, as we get into it. There's a really wide range of applications that are available to us as we look at these medicinal mushrooms.
