Fruit and veg could be kept fresh without the use of chemicals apparently, by exposing them to ozone. Researchers have found that exposing fruit to low levels of the toxic form of oxygen for up to eight days prevented almost 95% of fungal infections – the most common form of spoilage. The study was lead by Dr Ian Singleton of Newcastle University. Stalker wonders if there is any application to the world of mushrooms. Get your ozone zapped shrooms here! No doubt some of the white coated boffins involved in mushroom research have already looked into it.
