Dr OZ on Fungus Posted on May 8th, 2010
Finally a voice of reason on the topic of fungus! Who would have believed it – today on the Dr Oz Show, the good doctor himself with a petri dish of fungus in his hand explaining the dangers of fungus, parasites and pollens which can be found in the carpeting in your home, and get into your lungs and affect your nervous system. People don’t realize that these opportunistic organisms are harbored among the fibers of your carpet and pose a health risk not only to adults but to children as well. New carpeting and other materials also out-gas for many months exuding toxic fumes and adding to the body’s already over burdened chemical load. Recent studies show that new born infants can have up to 300 chemicals in their blood stream out of some 70,000 different chemicals found in our food, air and water supply. Dr Oz is shedding light on some of these important subjects, making health education fun and provocative.
