Mold has certainly made it's way into people's homes as well as the headlines recently.
Many people still don't fully understand the health hazards of fungal exposure. The term
toxic mold is somewhat misleading as it connotates an idea that certain molds are toxic,
when actually certain types of molds produce secondary metabolites that produce toxins. The
correct term is mycotoxins. Airborne mycotoxins from can definitely destroy one's health.
Sometimes, people are unaware that they are breathing mold spores and mycotoxins until they
are very sick. Certain people have a minor allergic reactions to the non-toxic mold, but
once you leave the affected area they most likely recover with few serious side effects.
However, if they have been exposed to the dangerous molds such as Stachybotrys or
Chaetomium, they could suffer from a myriad of serious symptoms and illnesses such as
chronic bronchitis, learning disabilities, mental deficiencies, heart problems, cancer,
multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, lupus, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple
chemical sensitivity, bleeding lungs and much more.
