Mushrooms

Poisonous wild mushrooms can cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain/cramps, diarrhoea and hallucinations. Australia is home to a huge variety of wild mushrooms and reliable identification is difficult. Some mushrooms can cause liver/kidney failure and death, others can result in agitation and seizures. Symptoms may occur within 30 minutes to 24 hours after ingestion depending on the type and amount of poisonous mushroom consumed.
