Mold and Health Issues
Toxic mold causes severe health problems such as respiratory problems, asthma, flu like symptoms, headaches, chronic fatigue, nose bleeds, skin rashes and some pathogenic molds affect the central nervous system or suppress the immune system such as memory loss, Attention deficit disorder, and some cases brain damage in children and older adults.
Over half of the homes in the US have mold. Does yours?
How does mold cause health issues?
Exposure to molds occurs when people inhale mold spores. Mold spores are so small that they evade the protective mechanisms of the nose and upper respiratory tract. Although thousands of molds exist, only a few dozen are significant allergens. They aggravate or cause allergies and asthma, particularly, in children. The incidence of allergies and asthma has doubled in the last decade, which has been linked to the increase in air-borne molds in modern energy-efficient homes. One of five Americans suffers from allergies. The other common effects of exposure to molds include nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, wheezing, flu like symptoms, chronic sinus infections, rashes, nosebleeds, fever, shortness of breath, headaches, dizziness, inability to concentrate, fatigue, and respiratory infections. Some pathogenic molds effect the central nervous system or suppress the immune system.
