Mold toxicity is a hot topic in the functional medicine industry right now. And for very good reason!
Basically, all of us are exposed to mold at times, whether it be from food sources (grains, coffee, dried fruit, corn etc.), or hidden sources in your environment.
Mold is simply a type of fungus that loves to grow anywhere with dust, rotting organic material, and humidity. There are various types of mold, some more detrimental than others. Mold releases spores that are like tiny ships sent out to help the mold proliferate in its environment. Spores contain highly toxic compounds called mycotoxins that can be breathed in, ingested, or absorbed through the skin.
Mycotoxins are so toxic that back in the ’70s and ’80s they were studied for biological warfare. Mycotoxins are ionospheric, which means they are both fat soluble and water soluble. Which means they can easily pass through tissues and go anywhere in your body.
Mold is detrimental to EVERYONE, but about 25% of the population is genetically incapable of producing antibodies towards the toxins, which makes them much more susceptible to mold illness.
