Is this possible?

My friend was handling his petri dishes yesterday (they are a week old now) and now he has a severe cough and maybe the flu. Is it possible the petri dishes grew those ailments and thus him handling them got him sick? And if so is it still possible to grew healthy edible shrooms.

Did somebody with a cold handle the petri dishes first? If this is the case then, in theory, you could have contracted the cold from handling the dish but I doubt it. You do sterilize your equipment before using it don't you?

The only way this can affect your ability to grow mushrooms is if you are too sick to get out of bed. I've never seen a mushroom with the flu!
