      I have recently started to grow Shiitake mushrooms on a commercial
scale, and have noticed that quite a few of the "mushroom pickers" are
having a problem (coughs ,shortness of breath, etc.) with the high spore
content that is present in the grow room.
   We use exhaust fans to change the air, but I was wondering if anyone
could suggest a Filter Mask, that might be a better solution.
