    sure its possible. i can also get anthrax from walking the back country. its in the soil around here and every once in awhile it wakes up from its dormant state and inffects livestock and sometimes ranchers. its HIGHLY unlikely to happen to me but it could. i feel it is probably unlikely to get a lung infection but not inpossible. 20 ppl could inhale the dust from a package of sphagnum and maybe one will come down with some sort of infection. dont breath in the dust and wear gloves and wash your hands if your worried. it seems to me its one of those things that could happen but is it really worth spending great amounts of time worrying about? just my 2 cents.

    Just wet it down and there won't be any dust kickup. I wouldn't worry though.

    ha.. i have a lung infection right now. Pretty bad to say the least. I had a bale of sphagnum sitting under my desk uncovered in water and when i check it yesterday it was full of fungus. Maybe thats the reason i'm sick. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.
