Briny, could you post the link to the actual article? I tried forwarding to my daughter in law but she was unable to enlarge the article from here. I tried searching for the specific article but so far can't find it easily. Thanks. I grew up and passed on the 'rub dirt on it' cure for everything from nettle stings to bee bites to scrapes.

EDIT: Never mind, I found it! Here it is for anyone else who may want to forward it to someone. I don't have a PCC Market so had no idea they have a newsletter.

I grew up with dirt, LOL! And to this day, I haven't gotten so much as a cold in 55 years. I think there is a connection.
