Beware of Mold – Mycotoxins and Aflatoxins Found in Mold Are Among the Most Carcinogenic Substances Known!

moldMycotoxins are toxins produced by some species of mold (myco means fungal). These mycotoxins are some of the most toxic substances in existence. When people are around toxic mold they are usually exposed to airborne mycotoxins by breathing them in. These mycotoxins end up in the lungs and cause breathing problems and other severe symptoms. “Black Mold” Mycotoxins cause serious symptoms and health problems such as mental impairment, breathing problems, damage to internal organs and sometimes even death. Once a person is no longer around toxic black mold most of their symptoms should gradually decrease. Some of the health problems caused by toxic black mold are permanent.

Aflatoxin is a Type of Mycotoxin 

Aflatoxin is a type of mycotoxin produced by Aspergillus molds. Aflatoxin is probably the most well known mycotoxin and the most researched. This is because aflatoxins are very toxic and highly carcinogenic. How badly a person is affected by aflatoxin mycotoxins depends on things like the person’s age, gender, level of exposure, duration of exposure, health, strength of their immune system, diet and environmental factors.

Aflatoxins Cause…

  • Liver damage
  • Liver cancer
  • Mental impairment
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Vomiting
  • Convulsions
  • Edema
  • Pulmonary Edema
  • Hemorrhaging
  • Disruption of food digestion, absorption or metabolism
  • Coma
  • Death
