Mold is a Living Breathing Organism, Best Described as Half Plant and Half Animal. If Inhaled or Ingested the Microscopic Mold Spores Enter the Human Body, Colonize and Begin to Grow. As the Mold Colonies Grow Within Your Body they Produce Poisons Called, “Mycotoxins”. These Poisons leach into your body. Each Day that the Infection is Left Untreated the Colonies of Mold Grow Larger, Leaching more Poison into your Body with Each Passing Day. This is Why Some People Exposed to Mold May Not Show Symptoms of Mold Exposure for up to Three Months after their Initial Exposure.

transplant recipients

Mold exposure has also become suspect as a cause of "SIDS", Sudden Infant Death Syndrome and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Aspergillus fungi have been documented to colonize previously damaged lung tissue and commonly colonize the airways of patients with cystic fibrosis, emphysema, asthma, smokers and healthy lungs.
