how about .... re white mold
Just saw this on another list that I am on and couldn't resist copying it.
This is just grrreat!
>An article in the Oct 16th New Scientist describes the use of
>milk as a fungicide to combat powdery mildew.
>"Milk's fungicidal powers were discovered by Wagner Bettiol
>of the environmental laboratory of Embrapa, the Brazilian
>Agricultural Research Corporation, n Jaguariuna, north of Sao
>Paulo. Bettiol, who was looking for cheap ways to control plant
>pests, observed that byproducts from milk-processing factories
>killed powdery mildew on courgettes. So he decided to simply
>spray fresh milk on the plants to see if it had the same effect. To
>his surprise, he found that it did. In fact, spraying heavily infected
>plants twice a week with a mixture of one part cow's milk to nine
>parts water was at least as good at stopping mildew as the
>chemical fungicides fenarimol and benomyl, Bettiol discovered."
>for the full story.
So....milk & cookies might be better for you than you think!!!
