species nuclei plants cell

Fungi are one of the five kingdoms of organisms. Like higher plants (of the kingdom Plantae), most fungi are attached to the substrate they grow on. Unlike plants, fungi do not have chlorophyll and are not photosynthetic. Another key difference from plants is that fungi have cell walls composed of chitin, a nitrogen containing carbohydrate. All fungi have nuclei and the nuclei of most species are haploid at most times. Many species have two or more haploid nuclei per cell during most of the life cycle. All fungi reproduce asexually by spore production. Most species reproduce sexually as well.

I developed a NEW way to treat fungus infections.There are many fungicides, however, the patients almost ALWAYS get REINFECTED. I developed tinea cruris (jock itch). I had not been in a pool or a gym for 60 years, consequently, I did not "catch" it there. I welefty2gnt to a drug store to see what they had and found there were a slew of products for fungus infections.

However, I found the solution by accident and got rid of it. Most patients usually get reinfected, consequently, were they ever cured from the beginning? I doubt it.

I discussed my system with the Chief of Dermatology at one of the most famous hospitals in the world. He said that my idea was obvious. It happens that doctors are so used to prescribing something for each symptom, consequently, they do not look for other ways to treat any disease or disorder. It is a habit.

What are the ideal conditions needed to support life of saprophytes? (such as....water, absence of light, right temperature conditions, food, and any other characteristics).

I have not found them listed anywhere.

Is absence of light needed, or do fungi grow in lighted areas? Is light TOXIC to fungi? They have no chlorophyll, consequently, they do not need light to survive or is light TOXIC to them.
