Mold Exposure Causes Health Problems

Indoor mold is a health hazard that is relatively commonplace in many homes and buildings.  According to the CDC, mold can grow on anything as long as there is moisture in the air.  Mold exposure has been known to cause health problems since ancient man.  In fact in biblical times if a dwelling was continuously moldy it was condemned and torn down.

Molds give off a poisonous substance called mycotoxins which can cause a variety of health problems ranging from an allergic response to neurological problems.  Symptoms of mold exposure include but are not limited to: asthma, sinus infections, tremors, memory loss, numbness and tingling, and muscle weakness.  Also, mold exposure as an infant has been linked to multiple allergy risk later on in life.

Unfortunately, mold contamination is so prevalent that mold exposure in the home is estimated to be the cause of 4.6 million cases of asthma per year in the USA.  If mold is a problem in the home it is very important to remove it as soon as possible and then prevent it from re-growing.

In order to prevent health problems and a costly clean up; it’s always best to prevent mold from growing by being proactive and to install an air monitoring system to have timely information on air quality.  All of the health problems associated with mold are treatable.  Asthma, sinus infections, etc. are all helped through dietary changes, supplementation, and avoidance of further mycotoxin exposure.
