The Global Indoor Health Network released their updated position statement on December 17, 2012. Be sure to read the new section titled "Global Burden of Indoor Air Contaminants."
As stated in the paper:
It is time to move beyond the focus of “establishing the fact of mold disease,” because it has already been established in numerous research papers and in the treatment of thousands of patients. It is time for our national and world leaders to develop a comprehensive public health response to this devastating epidemic that has the potential to cripple our individual and collective futures.
