Microbes My Health
The article below suggests that for good health in plants there needs to be a network of microbes in the soil which interact to help the plant to thrive and to defeat many diseases.
The implication is that if some or many of these are not present or are impeded from functioning as they should then the risks to the plants increase.
If we see ourselves as complicated entities that have in common with plants a dependence on a variety of microbes interacting to enable our physical well being then it follows that all those things which counter, remove or damage those microbes will entail damage to the human body.
Just how much stuff is there in the average house now designed to do just that?
