The Aztecs gave us many things we have in our pantry today, and they developed revolutionary farming techniques that were a marvel.  However, some of the foods they ate, like corn fungus, would very likely astonish us.  We can all benefit from their unique evolutionary adaptations.  Dr. Dirk Van Tuerenhout, Curator of Anthropology at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, discusses how many of their ingredients might help feed a hungry planet tomorrow.
