Truffles are costlier than gold and diamond. Yes, it is true.
Want to eat this delicacy: well, the price could be as high as USD 11,000 per kilogram.

Willing to pay?

This ridiculous price has rightly earned truffle the epithet “Black Diamond of Gastronomy”.
A truffle sandwich may cost you as much as 350 dollars. Truffle paste, butter, and oil are other items made out of it.

Truffles are fungi, grow under the soil and are pleasantly flavored. But the cost means a common man can just dream about it.

Italy, France, and Spain are the main markets. In fact, Spain is considered the largest market of Black Truffles (they come as white and black).

Truffles are something that just grow underneath, ie, you do not do farming. They just grow at wild places like mushroom grow, but hunting can be difficult as they are to be searched by digging the soil. Truffle hunters do so with the help of dogs who are good at sniffing them.

Where do we find Truffles in India:

It is known as Guchchhi in India. Truffles grow in mountain states likes Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttrakhand, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim, and Darjeeling. The farmers may be able to get as much as Indian rupees 4,000 per kilogram.

Imported truffle may be available in some marketplaces, but it remains a prized possession.

Over a dozen children in Spain have been diagnosed with “werewolf syndrome” after a major medicine mix-up, media reports said.

The Spanish Agency of Medicines and Medical Devices confirmed the outbreak of hypertrichosis — commonly known as “werewolf syndrome”, to El Pais newspaper on Wednesday after 17 cases were reported by parents in three regions in Spain.

The disease causes causes excessive hair growth, which some say can make those affected appear like a werewolf.

The babies began growing hair all over their body after being given what was thought to be omeprazole — a drug that helps with gastric reflux. But later it was discovered that the treatment actually contained minoxidil — a medication used for the treatment of hair loss, reports say.

An investigation by the agency found that one manufacturer in Spain, Farma-Química Sur, was to blame for a labelling mix up that resulted in children accidentally ingesting minoxidil, according to reports from El Pais and Granada Hoy.
