Got this bit of info via my mom. Apparently houseplants can increase the risk of respiratory infections due to the bacteria and fungi that grow in the potted plant's soil.

Now, like my mom that is not really sufficient reason to chuck out my houseplants but I was wondering if anyone else had heard about this?
