People everywhere get this from soil, and plenty die too. Completely unknown by most.

Just wait till the fungi start to spread and infect.

Ah yeah, it's the reminder that you should likely mask up when gardening. I do, especially when I'm mixing things, like potting mix, or top dressing a raised bed. I also rinse my sinuses afterwards.

I just planted a bed of garlic. I don't think I caught anything, but that's the last time I do it gloveless and maskless.

My wife learned the value of masking while gardening in the past couple years.  Have you ever seen Dog Vomit slime mold? Now imaging it in your lungs.

All the bags of potting soil I've bought recently and anything the even looks like dirt has warnings printed on the bag.
