Fungus Among Us
An article in yesterday’s Seattle Times by Dru Sefton held this disturbing information about your pillow:
It may contain more than 1 million spores of as many as 16 types of fungus.
If you open up an older pillow, it’s a cesspool of mold, mildew, fungus, dust mites, and mite feces, according to a bedding expert.
It was also noted that the perfect conditions for the fungus are created by the 20 GALLONS of sweat we put into our beds each year.
