We have been told all our lives that mold is bad. If we find mold in our homes, we need to have it removed as soon as possible. But does everyone know why mold is bad for us? This article from MedicineNet.com helps to explain the help problems related to mold.
Molds produce irritating substances, which, in many instances, trigger allergic reactions – sneezing, runny nose, coughing, wheezing, tearing and redness of the eyes, skin irritation, rash, or asthma attacks – in some people. But that is just the beginning. While allergic reactions are the most common health effect resulting from mold, they are not the worst. Some molds actually produce toxins that could cause serious health issues.
Molds like Stachybotrys (“black mold”) produce myotoxins, which can irritate the eyes, skin and airways even in individuals not allergic to mold. In serious cases, people develop severe reactions to mold exposure, including: fever, difficulty breathing, and lung infection.
Several factors – degree of allergies, susceptibility to mold, time exposed to mold, type of mold and amount of mold – play into how an individual will react to mold.
