Toxic Side Effects of Mold

3 Aug

Fungi, like mold, may be found both indoors and outdoors. Nobody knows just how many species of fungi occur but estimates range from thousands to perhaps three-hundred thousand or even more. Molds grow most useful in hot, humid situations, and moist, and spread and reproduce by making spores. Mold spores can survive harsh environmental conditions, such as for instance dry conditions, that not help normal mold growth. Some individuals are sensitive and painful to molds. For these folks, contact with molds could cause symptoms such as nasal stuffiness, vision irritation, coughing, or skin irritation. Many people, such as individuals with serious allergies to molds, could have worse reactions. Serious reactions might occur among individuals exposed to considerable amounts of molds in occupational settings, such as for instance farmers working around moldy hay. Serious reactions may include fever and shortness of breath.
