Here's a new episode, particularly long, in which I interview a friend I knew from school who got sick with similar issues simultaneously to me and ended up pursuing mold avoidance in new Mexico. We talk about his whole journey but at the end we get into his visions for using permaculture to remediate toxins

we talk aobut the outdoor microbiome, outdoor toxins, and the "good areas" of the united states. may be of interest to some that are considering the role in which these things play in their disease

Valley Fever came up again today.... symptoms can include FLU-LIKE

article from GRIST:

https://grist.org/health/valley-fever-rising-us-west-wildfires-cocci-fungus/


this rattled me today, because I was reminded of my archeologists. Many of whom got sick and some died, in Northern California, 1970. Of Valley fever. They were all from Queens, New York City students, and many were vulnerable due to their genetics, Italian, darker skin types, some Jewish folks.

I spent the summer hanging out at the dig, quite often.

WOW what if I have some weird version of Valley Fever?

Valley fever is also a natural disease but maybe made worse ... or almost certainly made worse , by development, farming or housing development, that involves tearing up the ground and disturbing the natural soil crust. This might be why it's theworst in the San Joaquin valley area of california.
