Can exposure to toxic mold cause health issues? Is there a link between water-damaged buildings and neurological dysfunction, sinus and respiratory problems, and other chronic health conditions?
When seeking medical treatment, many mold-exposed individuals are met with skepticism by physicians. Family members or loved ones may dismiss the connection.
The document linked below offers a comprehensive list of studies that may be shared with those who question the connection between water-damaged buildings and adverse health conditions.
Examples of these studies include:
- Mould exposure at home relates to inflammatory markers in blood.
- Sarcoidosis, asthma and asthma-like symptoms among occupants of a historically water-damaged office building.
- The validity of the environmental neurotoxic effects of toxigenic molds and mycotoxins.
- Stachybotrys chartarum, trichothecene mycotoxins, and damp building-related illness: new insights into a public health enigma.
There are currently more than 300 studies linking exposure to toxigenic contaminants found in water-damaged buildings with adverse health outcomes.
