STUDIES INDICATE BLACK MOLD CAN IMPACT YOUR HEALTH
Mold is a fungus growth, which begins with a minute spore.
Toxic black molds can be found anywhere a dark and damp environment allows them to grow. Spores can be breathed in, absorbed through the skin or ingested on our food.
Young children, senior citizens and anyone with immune deficiencies caused by disease, chemotherapy, etc are particularly vulnerable to grave illness following exposure to microbial contamination.
HEALTH EFFECTS AND WHAT YOU CAN DO TO LESSEN THEM
Laboratory studies in animals and at the cellular level offer supporting data for the direct toxicity of fungal spores and mycotoxins in mammalian lungs (University of Connecticut Health Center Report in 2004). A health study by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health links adult-onset asthma to workplace mold exposure. And in 1997, the Centers for Disease Control announced an apparent link between mold contamination in homes and cases of infant pulmonary hemorrhage.
Other common effects from
molds are pneumonitis, upper respiratory problems, sinusitis, dry cough,
skin rashes, stomach upset, headaches, disorientation and bloody noses.
Severe exposure can lead to internal bleeding, kidney and liver failure
and pulmonary emphysema.
What are we supposed to believe and what should our next move be to defend our families, and ourselves with all the media exposure to toxic mold in the last year or so? First, we must take this threat seriously. If you see mold in your home, get it tested as soon as you can. Get your home tested if you have a family member with an unexplained illness, respiratory irritation, rash, etc that seems to get better when they are away from home.
