A Doctor’s Perspective on Mold from the National Institute of Health and the American Society of Microbiology
Nobody wants to breathe, consume, or otherwise be exposed to mold. When mold has contaminated the home or workplace, people are more likely to become ill from respiratory disease. Scientists agree that mold causes many of the health problems that our NYC mold removal clients report, such as wheezing, coughing, sinus infections, asthma attacks, or worse.
The Science of Toxic Mold & Health Problems
Since the 1700s, doctors have noted a link between mold and illness. In 1989, a large study looked at thousands of sick children and found mold exposure to be a common thread. More recently, scientists have proved the link between certain mold species and diseases, including Aspergillosis.
According to an NIH report on toxic mold, there’s some confusion about whether mold causes very serious illnesses for two reasons: a lack of formal studies and the fact that the humidity that fuels mold growth also exacerbates other problems.
More research should be conducted on the link between mold and infectious diseases. In the meantime, the best action is mold remediation.
