What Is Mold?
Molds are small organisms found almost everywhere. They can be black, white, orange, green, or purple. Mold Exposure is perhaps the single most misdiagnosed illness in the United States. Exposure to Molds can and does affect people differently. It can enter into the human body through different pathways. People are exposed to Mold by eating contaminated foods; mold spores can enter into a person’s sinuses and lungs through normal respiration.
Most mold symptoms are caused by mold allergies. When you breathe in mold spores your immune systems responds by creating allergic reactions. These reactions are the immune system’s defense against foreign particles entering the body. Molds have the ability to produce various symptoms, such as skin rashes, respiratory distress, various types of inflammation, cognitive issues, neurological symptoms, and immune suppression.
