Health and Soil Ecology

Thanks to Simon, for THIS refreshing article (refreshing in that it looks at some of the wider systems interactions involved in human health - not just the next superfood; or why coffee/red wine/chocolate is good/bad).

"A recent experiment in the U.K. showed that mycorrhizal filaments act as a conduit for signaling between plants, strengthening their natural defenses against pests." (From the article - another interesting article posted by Simon describes that experiment..I'll see if I can find it, later).
