The truth about pillows and fungi

at http://www.fungalresearchtrust.org/

Cllick on "the trust's achievements" to find the press release on the Univ. of Manchester's study on dust mites and fungi. Several news orgs. carried stories on this study.

Some articles quoted the researchers recommending feather pillows for those with asthma/allergies. Of course, for those of us allergic to feathers - that's not much help.

That was quite the article. Due to the many TV discussions (eg. Live at 5) about mites in pillows we have replaced all our pillows. I was not aware of the dangers of fungi or the fact that they are lurking in our pillows. Thanks for passing on this info.

Yikes! I hope that those anti-dust mite pillow covers keep the fungi out. I'm beginning have second thoughts about my house plants (in my case--apartment plants). I wonder if you can catch that disease through air-borne spores....sounds like you could. I know I shouldn't have plants anyways because of mold (allergy) issues.....
