A brand-new study of the function microbial communities play on the leaves of plants suggests that fertilizing crops may make them more susceptible to illness.
University of California, Berkeley, biologists found that spraying tomatoes with microbes from healthy tomatoes secured them from disease-causing germs, however that fertilizing the tomatoes beforehand negated the protection, causing a boost in the population of pathogenic microbes on the plants' leaves.
Isotretinoin, a kind of vitamin A, has been recommended to deal with acne for decades. It reduces oil roduction in the skin, which helps in preventing acne from forming.

It shifts the skin microbiome of acne patients to more closely resemble that of people with typical skin. The new study is published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology.
