Mushrooms talk to teach other

From Harper’s July Findings:

The Unconventional Computing Laboratory found that the electrical impulses of mushrooms appear to communicate using vocabularies of up to fifty words, and that split gills form more complex sentence patterns than caterpillar, enoki, and ghost mushrooms.

I have questions. Maybe I should address them to the mushrooms directly when I visit their bins at Citarella. But if I talk to them, does it mean I can’t eat them? I would think so, especially if they talk back.

I am finding this somewhat distressing.
