Black Mould and its Toxic Mould
Effects on Human Health

Fungi, mildew and mould (mould) diseases
are not new problems. Mould contamination, mould damage, and mould infestation have always been threats to people, animals, and plants. Even in the Bible Leviticus, chapters 13 and 14, there is a mention of a plague, which is also known as mould: "Watch the plague (mould) and if the plague spreads, the unclean item or property must be removed and destroyed."

Stachybotrys chartarum, the infamous disease-causing mould nicknamed "toxic black mould", was first identified and described by a scientist from wallpaper collected in a home in Prague in 1837. The toxic effects of Stachybotrys have been reported as early as the 1920s.  This mould can cause severe, permanent brain damage similar to the effects of Alzheimer's Disease. Stachybotrys mould is present in a quarter of UK properties.

The top 100 mould illnesses are detailed at Mould Health.

Moulds can grow on almost any celluose substance (such as paper, wood, gypsum board) as long as the surface is humid and/or wet.

Some people are more sensitive to mould exposure. For these people, living or working in mould infestation can become permanent health afflictions, allergies, sinusitis, or in worse cases, cancer (from Aspergillus mould) and even death (Stachybotrys mould). Individuals with serious allergies to moulds may have more severe reactions such as fever and shortness of breath. People with chronic illnesses, such as obstructive lung disease, may develop mould infections in their lungs.

Exposure to moulds can cause symptoms such as nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, wheezing, runny noses, eye irritation, congestions, asthma aggravation, severe headaches, dizziness and fatigue. More severe symptoms may involve profusely bloody runny noses, the coughing up of blood, severe headaches, fibrous growth in the lungs, cognitive dysfunction and loss of memory.

Based on these and more other dramatic cases, moulds are potentially dangerous and cannot be ignored. They must be removed as soon as they are discovered. If tenants or homeowners experience mould problems, it is the responsibility of their landlord or adjuster to include cleaning and removal of any mould problems, before further damages can occur.
