Re: Moldy Logic NAA Amicus 2009 & Blog 2010

Really? Then why is the NAA educating their members that mold
can harm tenants' health and sometimes even cause death..while
their attorneys are telling judges the EXACT opposite?
The US Chamber paper claims that it is scientifically proven "the
notion that toxic mold is an insidious secret killer is a result
of trial lawyers, media and junk science". Not according to the
NAA's own blog as they are informing their members why it is
important to address asap.
Can you cite to the scientific source reference for the
concluding above statement found in the US Chamber paper, "A
Scientific View of the Health Effects of Mold"?
And if this is such a stellar substantive science paper, then why
do you think none of its named co-authors will even claim they
wrote it, in on their CV's?
It really is a bit scary that you give advice to people, both
occupants and owners/property mgrs, while professing to have
expertise in this area. Wonder how much money has been wasted
when prop mgrs have been forced to defend the lack of protection
for their occupants/bad faith because they relied on
your "professional" advice.
