    Dear CC:

    Oh, my. Perhaps if you ever have the poor luck to be exposed to
    toxic mold and feel the changes in your body as I have (not even
    having heard about it in the media at that point), you will be less
    likely to believe the hallowed references you might now cite.

    The problem is that mold DOES cause, in some people, terrible
    health effects. In me, and forty co-workers, it caused sinus and
    lung problems (permanent lung damage in me - that can be measured),
    severe breathing problems in the presence of the mold and afterward
    with environmental triggers that are entirely new to me, such as
    chemicals. Chemicals also nauseate me that never bothered me
    before - and make me very dizzy. This has destroyed my teaching
    career. The woman who worked in my exact room before me also has
    similar damage as well as nerve damage that led to a Parkinson-like

    What we need are fewer so-called experts and more funds for good
    studies so that the experts can learn what the mold victims already
    know. And there are many studies out there already to support what
    we mold victims have experienced.

    I tell you what. Find a home full of mold, buy it, live in it for a
    few years and then return to this site and let us know how you are
