Every person has a different chemical reaction when exposed to mold. You see, every person's immune system works differently. We all have a different capability for warding off disease. Some people will grow deathly ill from exposure to mycotoxins while others will not even notice them. Mycotoxins are the spores that mold sends into the air to protect itself. This is also why they are so dangerous to human health. Generally speaking people with weak or compromised immune systems will feel much worse when exposed to the mycotoxins of mold. Below is more information about the effects of mold exposure along with a list of symptoms to look out for.
Every person has a different genetic make up and therefore a different functioning immune system. Hence the reason why everyone has a different allergic reaction to mycotoxin exposure. A persons symptoms will vary based upon your immunity, the type of mold you have been exposed to, and how long you are exposed to it. If you suffer from varying health symptoms and your family doctor has no answer as to why this is happening, it is likely your environment is playing a role in this. It is usually the air inside your house or even your workplace that's causing your illness. Do you know if there is a history of past water damage either at work or in your home? Do you see staining on any ceiling areas? Is there a leak in the air conditioning system? Does your health improve once you exit this environment and feel bad again once you come back?

Mold toxicity is often the end result with constant exposure to mold of a toxic substance. A common misconception among allergists who are untrained in this type of toxicity levels in humans, which is technically not their area of expertise unless they have trained specifically in environmental medicine with their background in immunology, is to do general allergen testing. Most tests usually result in an unequivocal result, a 2+ or less. This induces some physicians to order allergy shots, regardless. These shots are absolutely worthless (and could possibly be harmful) to a person who has been heavily exposed to these mycotoxins as they are already in a state of toxicity. If anything, this could exacerbate the problem. Because many doctors are not trained in this field, they may try to "guess" at a diagnosis.
In laymen's terms, molds produce mycotoxins. These substances, although unseen by the naked eye, are ingested and then enter the body through the skin, mucous and airways. Once ingested, mold has the requirements to colonize and spread. In doing this, it can compromise the immune system and damage everyday processes of the body. Mold and yeast are interchangeable only in their dimorphic state, which is often a big misconception, although both are fungi. There has been a theory of a connection between Autism Spectrum Disorder onset and Candida Albicans in the body. New studies are being conducted during the first quarter of 2006. Updates will follow.
Different mold species can have varying health effects, but it is important to remember that any excessive mold growth needs to be taken care of, regardless of the species. Any excessive mold growth can lead to increased allergies, toxicity, and house/building structural problems.
