Amanita muscaria

The toxins in Amanita muscaria are water-soluble ... the consumption of detoxified A. muscaria has been practiced in some parts of Europe (notably by Russian settlers in Siberia) since at least the 19th century, and likely earlier. 

This observation may imply that A. fulva under typical geochemical site conditions is able to regulate the accumulation of many of the elements mentioned in fruiting bodies :  Ag, Al, As, Ba, Ca, Cd, Co, Cu, Cr, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, Na, Ni, P, Pb, Rb, Sr, Tl, V, U and Zn

.... accumulation of U, Th, Pb and Ag in macrofungal fruit-bodies apparently does not depend on total content and chemical

fractionation of these metals in soils (tested by the BCR sequential extraction in this study).
