Well this is a decision we have to make for ourselves...
The point is that 50 P. semilanceates is NO WHERE NEAR THE lethal
dosage, I already stated that I know people who have eaten about 150
FRESH (thus more powerful) P.semilanceatas....
I also think this is stupid because increasing the dosage after a
certain point makes no difference but USUALLY it isn't fatal. What I
mean: I believe that someone died but I think:
a) The death cause was not P.semilanceata but something else.
b) This person had an extreme reaction to the mushroom, this
definitively isn't common.
