Black Mould and its Toxic
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
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
The top 100 mould illnesses are
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
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.
