Atlanta, GA – The Centers for Disease Control, along with the EPA have had been under rigid scrutiny for their controversial ignorant stance on the thousands of complaints they have received from angry home owners, renters, and workers who have been denied any benefits due to the CDC and their purposeful method of ignoring claims in order to “maintain economic livelihood” have now changed their stance and decided that since they have lost credibility with their false claims, the truth, or even partial truth is better than the false claims they have been putting out are better than losing their credo.
This is the a general memo that we just received. We do not accept any responsibility for the validity for this, but in the next few hours, it will be checked out.
Most molds fall more into a nuisance category, producing allergens and irritants with the potential to produce hay fever-type symptoms such as sneezing, a runny nose and red eyes, a skin rash, irritated eyes, nose, throat and lungs.
However, some molds, commonly called toxic mold, also produce poisonous substances, primarily associated with their spores, called mycotoxins (mycology is the branch of botany dealing with fungi). These toxins have the potential to cause serious harm, disrupting our cell structures and cell processes. The effects to the human body have been documented using controlled, laboratory conditions.
In our everyday indoor environment there is less certainty of symptoms and causality, but it is important to note that mycotoxins have been proven to be present indoors with victims suffering from pulmonary hemorrhage or pulmonary hemosiderosis (primarily in infants), nose bleeds, immune system suppression (resulting in increasing numbers of infections), hair loss, dermatitis, cancer, chronic fatigue, psychological depression, diarrhea, sore throats, chronic bruising, vomiting, abdominal pain, reactive airway disease, headaches and other flu-like symptoms.
Other symptoms associated with mold include cognitive, disorder, ‘burning’ eyes, blurred vision, respiratory illness, chest pains, chest tightness, breathing problems, shortness of breath, wheezing, dry cough, nasal congestion and balance problems.
The following list reflects current ‘medical community’ knowledge of the effects of exposing the human body to mold:
- People exposed to molds may develop a variety of illness, some of which can be quite serious.
- Certain foods contaminated with some molds may cause cancer.
- A variety of respiratory illnesses may be due to mold exposure or mold infections.
- Rarely, molds can cause serious ‘hypersensitivity reactions’ or pneumonia in people exposed to high concentrations over a prolonged period of time.
- Molds can cause allergies affecting the eyes, ears, nose and throat and can cause hay fever and even asthma.
- Molds exposure and infections have been associated with chronic fatigue, depression and other systemic complaints.
The Centers for Disease Control and other agencies are actively investigating the role of molds in causing disease in people and what treatments may be required.
