Allow us introduce y’all to Paul Stamets, the keynote speaker at the 2015 International Herb Symposium. Paul founded Fungi Perfecti and Host Defense organic mushroom supplements.

Paul was 1 of 7 scientists to be chosen for the prestigious 2014 Inaugural Class of AAAS – The American Association for the Advancement of Science (call it ‘triple-A-S’)-Lemelson Invention Ambassadors Program.

He wears a signature cap made from the birch polypore Fomus fomentarius which allowed fire to travel with the ice man and flint spark guns to ignite in Napoleonic times.

His work may save the world.

Thank you, Paul.
