Gardening

Dr Mark Porter explores health issues of the day.

He investigates what harm we can do to ourselves in the garden. In June 2008, The Lancet reported that a man had died from inhaling many Aspergillus spores from his compost heap. Mark discusses the realities of the problem, finds out about toxic plants and obtains some advice about protecting backs and knees while gardening.
