About the Book:
Approximately one hundred species of mold are toxic and about fifteen are known to cause negative health effects in humans. Symptoms of exposure to mold can include allergic reactions, asthma and chronic cold and flu-like conditions. Black Mold - Your Health and Your Home systematically demystifies the molds we encounter in our daily lives.
Through two hundred pages and five sections author and mold expert Richard F. Progovitz provides a comprehensive introduction to mold, detailing how it grows and how it can invade our homes and our bodies. If you believe you have a mold problem or a mold allergy Black Mold Your Health and Your Home will provide the facts you need to take appropriate action.
Mold infestations that have closed schools, colleges and office buildings from Boston to Florida have alerted, if not alarmed, the public to the health threat posed by toxic black molds. Infestations in the homes of the rich and famous, such as Ed McMahon, Melinda Ballard and Erin Brockovich have received national media coverage including a segment on the CBS news magazine 48 Hours. Infested structures are known to have "Sick Building Syndrome," and the problem has recently been referred to as "the asbestos of the new millenium."
