Updated: Sep 23, 2019
What are mycotoxins?
Mycotoxins are toxic chemicals produced by certain types of mold. These harmful byproducts can affect your health ranging from mild allergy-like symptoms, to more serious and potentially life threatening diseases.
Studies show, statistically 1 in 4 people suffer adverse effects from mold exposure. Some molds are more dangerous than others and can pose substantial health risks.
