A Mushroom That Should Not Be Served With Wine

The shaggy mane, also know as the shaggy ink cap or lawyer's wig is an edible mushroom that taken alone is safe for humans. However, it should not be eaten with alcohol.

The reason for this is that it contains a toxin, that blocks the degradation of alcohol in the body and causes the so-called disulfiram-effect, characterized by vomiting, dizziness, and causes a drop in arterial tension.
