Fungicide worries ...
I am am seriously concerned about the use of fungicides ... I was reading an article (or was I listening to it on the radio?) the other day which stated that fungal conditions are becoming resistant to fungicides in the way that bacteria are developing/have developed resistance to antibiotics.
The article said that this means that fungal conditions which were previously merely a nuisance are causing huge health problems with serious possible outcomes. There was mention of fungal conditions establishing themselves within a body and growing into a mass. Does this mean that the day may come when we could die from incurable thrush or athlete’s foot?!?!
Fungicides have been used a great deal in agriculture and horticulture, as antibiotics were in farming ... I don't use them, but I know some others do ... I think we may be laying up a store of trouble for the human race if we continue to use them at the current rate.
Does anyone else know anything or has anyone heard/read anything about this?
