Up in the mountains of Bhutan a mysterious grub-turned-mushroom is
fueling a high-altitude rush for richness. Worth up to $80,000 per kilo,
scientists believe it may be the miracle cure to change medicine.
Called cordyceps, "it's
a fungus that kills insects in a horrible way", explains biologist Dr
Hywel-Jones. Although not a friend to insects, many scientists are
convinced that for humans it is a super antioxidant, a powerful
antibiotic, energy booster, heart-helper, lung-improver and sex
sustainer. Across Bhutan, thousands are making the arduous journey to
the mountains in a quest to strike it rich.The scramble for the fungus
has also spawned a fierce illegal trade and violent clashes in Tibet;
something Bhutan is desperate to avoid."There's no reason why a small
country like Bhutan cannot be a high-tech pharmaceutical industry...who
knows what it could be giving to mankind in the future."
