Top 5 Reasons Mold Is Scary!
Constant exposure to toxic mold leads to a condition known as “hypersensitivity pneumonitis” and is thought to be the reason that high profile actress, Brittany Murphy, died.
Just breathing in dead Aspergillus species mold spores can cause serious illness and death.
One of the common complaints we encounter with toxic mold survivors is the fact that Doctors just can’t figure out what is wrong. The problem is constant exposure to mold can result in about 37 chronic symptoms and many other adverse health effects, which is why it is difficult to pinpoint the diagnosis of CIRS and to ultimately determine that mold is the cause.
In addition to CIRS, mold causes skin rashes and some speculate may be the cause of other scary diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Cancer, and asthma.
Mold is also thought to be a contributing factor in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and some speculate that there is a causal link between mold and miscarriages
In the 1990s the Mayo Clinic published findings from a study that suggests that NEARLY ALL chronic sinusitis (inflammation of the membranes of your nose and sinus cavities) is caused by mold, but blamed on bacteria—then mistreated using antibiotics.
The T-2 mycotoxin, which is classified as a trichothecene mycotoxin, is elaborated from the fusariam, aspergillus, and stachybotrys (black mold) species of mold. T-2 mycotoxin is used as a biological war agent. In aerosol form it is referred to as “yellow rain” and was used in Vietnam, Laos, and several other wars.
A home is an all you can eat buffet for mold. Give mold some water, food, and the right temperature and your home is an inviting place for mold to feast on. As mold digests the tasty ingredients of your home-drywall, wood, carpet, and other dead, organic matter-you will begin to smell mold farts, also known as Microbial Volatile Organic Compounds (MVOC), which are gaseous by-products produced during fungal metabolism. Ignore this smell and it’s causes and you will be asking for trouble as the true horror of excessive mold growth could harm your health and well-being, not to mention the structural integrity of your property!
