There are millions of microbes living in soil...and they help suppress disease. In fact, we learned how to make many of our modern medicines from these microbes! Soil keeps us healthy in other ways, like providing nutrients for our food. Some soil microbes can even clean polluted soil! Healthy soils mean healthy humans.
