Plants may make indoor air more polluted?

Internet quote of the day:

"The EPA says that the only available study of the use of plants to control indoor air pollutants couldn't determine any benefit in the use of plants. Furthermore, the EPA warns that plants in certain situations can make air more polluted, as the damp soil required to grow them is a breeding ground for unhealthy micro-organisms."

So much for plants as indoor air purifiers? Our air purifiers don't need damp, micro-organism filled soil....
