Mud, glorious dirt ... and healthy bacteria
Intensively farmed pigs need copper added to their diet, which they would naturally find in the environment, in natural soil.
Despite the title of their article, it isn't really about dirt. Dirt is a human invention. Things are made dirty by human activity. The valuable bacteria are found in SOIL - the source of all our food, timber, nature reserves and gardens.
Personally, I'd rather eat soft fruit straight from the plant than leave soil on my potatoes. As for yogurt - there are several healthy bacteria that make milk 'alive', including calabash and Kefir. The last two work at room temperature.
