To the best of my knowledge, no plant viruses are capable of infecting
man; however, TMV (tobacco mosaic virus) has been recoved from
bronchial washes of smokers of unfiltered cigcarettes.  Unfortunately, I
don't have a reference for the latter comment.

Do plant viruses affect humans?  If they do in what sense?
