In order to combat SBS, wouldn't you need to do research with
the organisms that cause it? But then deny it.
AgraQuest is also targeting the control of mold and bacteria

certain types of microorganisms infect buildings and cause
health problems including headaches, respiratory troubles,
nosebleeds and memory loss.
