    There are fungus on YOU right now all over your body, really. There are fungi everywhere you touch or look even deep under the sea. There are probably even fungus in bags of fertilizer, certainly all over your grass cutting equipment

    If you could be more specific it would be more helpful. Are you assuming all fungus are pathogenic. OK what about pennicillin or streptomycin or , or , or

    Fungi are probably one of the most helpful biology on the planet

    There's bad stuff on potatos and peanuts too, and many of the other foods you eat. It's not that we are exposed to fungii but that we are ruining our bodies defenses and immune systems with medications, antidepressants, anti inflammatories, proton pump inhibitors, antacids, mercury injected into our bloodstreams when we are infants, removal of our appendii and tonsils when they get imflamed, exposure to harmful chemicals and airborn pollutants, smoking, drinking, stress, etc. Our bodies are starting to have a difficult time regulating good from bad anymore. Is that the fungii's fault?

    Do you have any data to back up your assertions?

    Are you talking about Aflatoxin?

    Limited applicability to lawns? Yes! In fact it probably has zero applicability to lawns. Nobody is buying our lawn clipping for consumption.

    Here is a good article if you are interested in defending against the bad guys. Homeostatic soil organisms. Lot's of good and bad microbes out there, but when we get out of balance internally, the bad ones can wreak havoc.
