    Re: Mary < **The Revised Mason-Dixon Line**

    Hey Johncodie:

    I've been looking a Ridge. I retract what I said. I don't think he knows what the hell he is talking about after all.

    Here is the article:

    Health Effects of Indoor Fungal Bioaerosol Exposure

    Frederick Fung A1, William G. Hughson A2

    A1 Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group, Department of Occupational Medicine, San Diego, California; University of California, San Diego, California
    A2 UCSD Center for Occupational & Environmental Medicine, University of California, San Diego, California; Occupational Medicine, University of
    California, Irvine, California


    Occupational and environmental health professionals are confronted with issues concerning the health effects of indoor fungal bioaerosol exposure.
    This article reviews current data on the health effects of indoor mold exposure and provides practical suggestions for occupational and environmental
    health practitioners regarding how best to manage these exposures based on published human studies. We conducted MEDLINE searches and reviewed all
    English language studies on indoor mold exposure (visible survey or objective sampling) and human health effects published from 1966 to November 2002.
    The main findings of the studies are analyzed in conjunction with plausible association of health effects and fungal exposure. Five case control
    studies, 17 cross-sectional surveys, and 7 case reports met the selection criteria. Current evidence suggests that excessive moisture promotes mold
    growth and is associated with an increased prevalence of symptoms due to irritation, allergy, and infection. However, specific human toxicity due to
    inhaled fungal toxins has not been scientifically established. Methods for measuring indoor bioaerosol exposure and health assessment are not well
    standardized, making interpretation of existing data difficult. Additional studies are needed to document human exposure-disease and dose-response


    Bioaerosol, Indoor Air Quality, Mold, Allergy, Irritation, Mycotoxins, Mycotoxicosis

    Best Regards,


    PS: I'm not young, but thanks for the kind thoughts.
