    Have you emphasized the importance of increasing awareness of the health effects of exposure to indoor molds, such as aspergillus, penicillium, cladasporium, stachybotrys, etc? These molds grow on wet/damp building products (sheetrock/gypsum wallboard) and can cause significant heath effects on individuals living and working in indoor environments that have had repeated water intrusion.
    This is an important issue that is not understood nor recognized by the medical community.
    It is time to help doctors look at these possible reasons for persistent health complaints where the cause is not well explained. As long as only the symptoms are treated, the patients will continue to suffer as the exposure continues. A very important health issue! Please!

    Joanne, I have been worried about indoor mold. I see it on the top of the dirt in my house plants, and when I had a few seed starts in my window, mold grew on the outside of the bio-degradable containers. Is there some way of testing our home for this? Is it expensive? My husband has this nagging cough too. I’m wondering if that is mold related.
