Let's Pillow Fight!

I'm not sure if this is the way we fight?

As if sleeping on a bed if dust mites weren't (aren't) disgusting enough, it turns out that our pillow maybe teeming with fungi, reports a recent British Study. When researchers tested a sample of pillow that had been in use for anywhere from 1 to 20 years, they detected more than 1 million fungal spores in each of them.

Synthetic pillow were the worst, with as many as 16 species present. "The cover on feather pillows have to keep the feathers in, so they block fungus better," says lead author Ashley Woodcook, Ph.D. If you like synthetic and you're allergic to mold-or simply don't want to bury your pretty face in fungus-buy a pillow cover designed to block allergens.

Gosh, my pillow is older than there are zillions of fungi? =)
