A Lethal Industrial Farm Fungus Is Spreading Among Us
By Alex Liebman and Robert Wallace, PhD
Synopsis: Candida auris is a drug-resistant yeast that has begun infecting and killing immuno-compromised people in hospitals all over the world. Its rapid spread and drug resistance probably stems from fungicide use in industrial agriculture. The use of fungicides in industrial monocultures has intensified greatly in recent years. This is creating drug-resistant fungal strains as well as destroying fungal ecosystems that would have restrained them. Agroecological methods offer excellent and credible alternative crop production systems say the authors.

Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”—Edward Bernays, Propaganda
