    Re: MCS and Mold

    Posted by Caoimhín P. Connell on 1/01/04

    Good morning, Judi:

    Perhaps you could be a little more specific. MCS is
    generally recognized as a condition consisting of primarily a
    dysfunctional psychological component. “Toxic mold
    is a term that was invented by the news media, and it is not
    a term that has any scientific validity and there is no such
    thing as a “toxic mold.” Finally, where does the liver issue
    tie into your question on mold or MCS? Certainly with regard
    to molds, there are some genera that produce powerful
    mycotoxins which are known to be associated with chronic and
    serious liver diseases if one eats foods that are heavily
    contaminated with the molds bearing those toxins, however,
    there is no evidence what ever to suggest that the normal
    exposures to the standard “toxic molds” found in every house
    in the world has any adverse effects on the liver.

    I provide scores of references in my discussion on molds
    which you may find useful. The discussion is at and I have provided a
    link to the page below.
