    Yes, that was basically was I was told at the Lahey Clinic last June of
    2003, that mold wasn't "toxic," so I guess you would have the same

    you explain the media invented this when it is actually mentioned in the
    Bible. And yes, while I know that mold is normal in the environment, I
    am talking about living with "excessive" mold hidden behind wall
    cavities, which had a bad odor. And I was wondering also what you
    would consider "normal?" I am not talking about "normal" like the kind
    you find once in awhile by a shower or something, I am talking about
    "excessive" exposure from inhalation of the invisible mold spores, that
    continued despite use of central air conditioning, and what does this
    does to a person with an already compromised liver/immune system?
    What is the mental disorder associated with MCS? Thanks for the link.
    Cheers and good morning to you,
