A woman has died after eating some of the world's most poisonous mushrooms.

Christina Hale, 57, ate the deadly death cap mushrooms after foraging them from the garden of her home.

Doctors at a hospital in Taunton, Somerset, battled to save her but she died of multiple organ failure in intensive care on November 19.

Look at some of the responses mate - always the fungi's fault! Maddening!

All mushrooms should become extinct because of this, what a tragic incident.

Thanks for that. I hadn't thought to check the responses. :roll:
