Your post is the one that got my attention because since I first noticed the illness, I also noticed fungus in the environment to a degree I've never seen before in my life. I've seen all kinds of fungal fruiting bodies in the woods, yards, now even along sidewalks in the neighborhood. They range in size and appearance. And this year for the first time in forty years of fish keeping with my dad and now for myself, I had to contend with fungal spores infiltrating the air bubbling system in my tanks and forming an oily nasty sludge growth in the tank itself.
Even my cats came down with a respiratory infection the vet was at a loss to treat. People can ridicule this discussion all they like but I personally am going to follow your well thought out observations on fungus and try your suggestion for a remedy if we get sick like that again this year because the doctors could not help any of us last year.edit on 10-9-2011 by SheeplFlavoredAgain because: Clarification

Ok...how odd is this...sitting in Bob Evans this morning...topic of convo for every table around me and the wait staff....you guessed it....everyone being sick and having been sick as far back as the end of July and not being able to shake it off.
Then...went to Walmart today to pickup a few things (by the way for you shooting enthusiasts out there...good prices on ammo :roll anyway....walking out of the store and passing the Rx area....I wish I had thought to grab the phone and snap a pic to post on here....the aisle for cold/flu/allergy medicine...completely jam packed full. My fiancee and I both noticed it at the same time, and she isn't really following this as closely as I am. She was like....wow....look at all the people. Again, convo was centered on what do I need to take to kill this cough and congestion....had it for weeks now....in Er with it, to the doctor with it....kids have it....cough won't go away....
Seriously....and I was totally not even thinking of this either of the times I was out today. Was enjoying breakfast and good conversation about plans for the weekend, and talking ammo and birthday party at wally world...
Odd to say the least. Certainly had me displaying that Mr. Spock raised eyebrow thing for sure.
Just thought I would add those two cents.

this topic has been on god like productions at least a half dozen of times in various forms. All the symptoms are the same and its happening all over America. My wife and I were I shout the only ones having trouble with nausea, headaches, and pressure in the head. My 7 mo old son now is having coughing attacks. And thanks to previous posters, now there may be a link. I didn't think that my 3 year old niece and mom in law had just a bad case of allergies with both having chronic coughing. We are in harper's ferry west Virginia. I am a researcher and I try not to come to conclusions without seeing all the options. But, I don't believe in coincidences either. My coincidence is that after I read some of these posts I never thought about fungi problems before. I have been here for 6 years and have not seen ruse type of fungi that all of a sudden sprouted on my front lawn. They are. Big as baseball's. In 6 years i haven't seen any fungi on my property. Last week in a matter of a day or 2 I have baseball size mushrooms? Something is happening and it will affect all of us. I thought that we were having problems from the ground moving under us. But now it can be an addition of other things, sinister things.
