The molds can affect your skin and lungs and have a toxic effect on your organs, bones, and intestines.
Mold toxins have the most serious effects on the central nervous system, including memory loss, difficulty breathing, and a higher risk of pneumonia and other serious diseases.
Mold toxicity has a wide range of possible health effects and is a leading cause of disability in the United States.
The most dangerous types of mold toxins include mold spores, which cause serious respiratory problems.
The majority of mold spores are harmless, but some species can cause serious problems in humans.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a list of some of the most toxic mold toxins.
These include B. burgdorferi, B. carteri, and B. kimberl, which can cause liver damage and death.
Mold spores can also cause pneumonia and pulmonary embolism.
You can find more information about mold toxins on the CDC website.
The CDC recommends people avoid exposure to mold spores in any environment and keep their home and car free of mold.
Other types of molds include Cryptosporidium, a fungus that causes small, brown, or brownish-colored eggs in food, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which causes infections in people with weakened immune systems and is one of the deadliest types of fungal disease.
People can also get sick from the fungus Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which is one type of fungus that can cause tuberculosis, although the actual risk of contracting the disease is very low.
Some people may not be able to clear their heads of mold for a long time.
People who have had a child with a respiratory illness may have difficulty breathing.
People with respiratory illness also can get pneumonia, which leads to death from the illness.
People at higher risk for mold exposure include those with weakened lung function, people with preexisting health conditions, and people who have recently smoked or ingested an occupational carcinogen.
People are also at higher risks for the disease if they are pregnant, have an active immune system, or are at high risk for asthma or allergies.
Mold can be harmful for older adults, children, and pregnant women.
Mold causes damage to the central nerve system, which has been linked to conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes.
These diseases can be triggered by environmental toxins, including dust mites and fungi.
Some of the symptoms of respiratory illnesses include difficulty breathing and shortness of breath, cough, wheezing, shortness and/or loss of muscle tone, and/to some degree, weakness.
People may also experience dizziness, fatigue, difficulty in balance, nausea, and headaches.
Some health conditions can also be worsened by mold exposure.
For example, a woman who had recently lost her baby to a respiratory disease can develop allergies to a number of chemicals that can irritate her skin.
These allergies can lead to asthma or other respiratory problems, including bronchitis.
Mold exposure can also lead to serious infections, including pneumonia, bronchial pneumonia, and pneumonia caused by bacteria.
Mold is also found in the digestive system, the respiratory tract, the skin, and the eyes.
People often can’t smell mold in the air, because it can be difficult to find the mold spores.
Mold and other toxins can also irritate the respiratory system and can cause infections.
People in certain medical conditions may be more vulnerable to developing mold exposure because of the severity of the conditions.
