Mold spores cause a majority of indoor air quality problems.
However, a more dangerous problem may be the toxic chemicals that are given off by certain molds to ward off other organisms that compete for their food sources.
One of these molds is a black mold known as staccybotrys chartarum. It is the "bad" mold mentioned often in the North Texas media.
This mold, which can be highly toxic, is best diagnosed and cured by experts.
Two illnesses cased by exposure to this mold are:
PH/H-Pulmonary hemorrhage and hemosiderosis. Infants have died from this after severe exposure.
OTDS-organic toxic dust syndrome.
