MOLD, MOISTURE AND YOUR HEALTH

Below are some studies linking mold to health related issues. While research still needs to be done, it has become obvious that the health issues due to mold exposure go far beyond asthma and allergy attacks and even effect healthy people. While some molds may be more dangerous or some people may be more suseptable, the fact is that if you have mold growing indoors, you are at a higher risk of health problems then if you don’t.
