MOLD & MILDEW

 

MOLD CONCERNS
...........................................
Recent reports in the popular press told of a "fatal fungus" responsible for lung problems in 10 infants, two who died. The deaths occurred in 193-94 in the Cleveland area. The CDC investigated the case and found a mold, Stachybotyrs, was found in the homes of the affected children and suggested an association. Many of these homes had been recently flooded.

WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT MOLD
The New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health (http://www.nycosh.org) gives this information on mold and its affects on health:

Mold can cause illness in several ways:

Irritation
Exposure to mold can irritate the eyes, nose, and upper breathing passages. Symptoms of irritation include burning eyes, nasal congestion, coughing, and post-nasal drip.

Allergy
Many people become allergic to mold and develop hay fever or asthma symptoms such as itchy, watery eyes, nasal congestion, sneezing, chest tightness, cough and wheezing.

Toxins
Some molds create chemicals, called toxins, that can cause illness. While much remains unknown about mold toxins, it appears that some molds produce toxins that can have effects on the skin, the respiratory system, the immune system, and the nervous system.

Infection
Some molds can also cause infection, such as chronic sinus infections. Other types of mold-induced infection are much less common, and occur mainly among people with weakened immune systems. Examples of individuals with weakened immune systems include those with HIV infection, those receiving chemotherapy, and the elderly. Children and pregnant women may also be at increased risk.
