Mold Illness Is Everywhere: What It Is and 11 Signs You Have It

Mold can be a big problem in many homes, however countless people are unaware of the problem.

Mold can grow anywhere not just in the kitchen ink or the bathroom walls and shower curtan.

Mold can be present in drywall, in the roof if it leaks, and even in the carpet that you walk on. One study found that even Christmas trees can breed mold, quietly releasing millions of spores into the room and causing winter allergies and asthma attacks. 

The study found that indoor air quality dropped six-fold over the 14 days a Christmas tree typically decorates a room.

Types of Mold

Growing in the modern American home are 1000's of different types of mould. Scientists classify these molds based on the effect they have on humans and other living things.

Allergenic Molds:

Allergenic molds are on the low end of the danger scale. They only cause problems for those with asthma and a predisposed allergy to the specific mold. Children are more likely to have mold allergies than adults.

Pathogenic Molds:

Pathogenic molds will cause some infection. This is a big problem for those with a suppressed immune system. An acute response resembling bacterial pneumonia is commonly found with those exposed to these types of mold.

Toxigenic Molds:

As the name implies, these molds produce mycotoxins that can cause serious health effects. They have been tied to immunosuppression and cancer. The toxic chemicals found in these types of molds can be absorbed into the body when one inhales them, eats them, or even touches them.

In short its the variety of health problems that can occur from any type of mold exposure. Although a mold allergy is the most common problem caused by exposure to mold, mold can cause illness without an allergic reaction. Mold can also cause some types of infections or irritant and toxic reactions. Infections caused by mold can lead to a variety of problems from flu-like symptoms to skin infections and even pneumonia.
