Black Mold Your Health and Your Home is a comprehensive introduction to mold, the problems it can cause and how to properly deal with it. Through two hundred pages and five sections, author and mold expert Richard F. Progovitz explains the facts about mold toxicity and systematically demystifies the abundance of molds we encounter in our daily lives.
Approximately one hundred species of mold are toxic, and about fifteen are known to cause negative health effects in humans, including allergic reactions, asthma and other chronic conditions. Recent media reports about mold infestations in the homes of Ed McMahon and Erin Brockovich have begun to alert the public to the potential heath risks of mold and in August of 2003, several schools in the Boston City School District were shut down due to hazardous mold infestations. Each of these incidents involve what has become known as "Sick Building Syndrome."
Is mold silently affecting the health of your loved ones or slowly deteriorating your home? Black Mold Your Health and Your Home was written to help you answer these important questions.
