We know there is a lot of confusing and misleading information about toxic mold. The insurance companies, their attorneys and defense experts, and other naysayers
have spent millions of dollars denying the truth about the health effects of mold and mycotoxins
We created this website to give you a place to go to help you identify accurate and reliable information.
If you find a website, article or document that says toxic mold isn't harmful, that information is not accurate.
The truth about mold has been known for many years, but Big Business (the insurance industry and other naysayers
) have spent millions of dollars denying the truth.....just like they did with tobacco. The tobacco industry denied the truth about the health effects of tobacco for 50 years.In fact, according to the Massachusetts report, "sick building syndrome" has been known since World War I, but the first published research paper on the topic did not happen until 1948 in England. Our website has reports from many government agencies including the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) and many other Government Agencies.
It's important to know that the insurance industry and other naysayers have spent a lot of money trying to stop the use of the term "toxic mold." They like to "spin" the news to their advantage. They use those same tactics during litigation
. The bad faith insurance companies will spin the truth and alter the facts and the evidence. The truth is that many types of mold produce mycotoxins, so the term "toxic mold" is appropriate.
It's also important to know that there can be other factors (in addition to mold and mycotoxins) that cause illness in water-damaged buildings. For example, there could be various types of bacteria such as actinomycetes and streptomycetes.
This is a complex issue, so you must be sure to hire qualified experts to help you and get medical treatment from doctors who know how to treat illness caused by toxic mold.
