Hair Soaks Up Oil Spills, Mushrooms Eat the Hair, Mushrooms Clean Up Oil Spills



Fungi (mushrooms) love hair and nails, and Fungi also like breaking molecular bonds: "The roots of mushrooms, called mycelium (http://www.fungi.com/info/sems/index.html), produce enzymes that unlock wood fibers, which are composed of strings of carbon-hydrogen molecules in the form of cellulose and lignin.
