View close to 100 compelling scientific studies, abstracts, and articles related to mold and health and school mold.
The following research provides readers with key findings that are highly relevant to understanding the potential impact of mold on human health. Victims of mold exposures will recognize the symptoms that can be so debilitating.
Some of the most compelling, recent studies on mold are featured here - revealing these biotoxins to be far more harmful than the minor allergen doctors previously understood them to be. Please see our Internet Links page on this site for more studies like these. We are honored to have the support of a number of these researchers, who truly care about school children and the staff who suffer in mold-ridden schools.
There are literally millions of teachers and other school employees and students ill from their school environment - very often, from mold and other agents in damp buildings. 20% of the American population is in schools, during any given week. Half of the American schools have poor indoor air quality, often from dampness and related problems. That's 10% of 300 million = 30 million, and 24% of them can't detox from mycotoxins (Shoemaker, 2004) = 7.2 million (estimated), at any given time (since the population cycles through, it is more, cumulatively - in fact, it is 24% of all people cycling through half of our schools - and most of our American population cycles through schools). During their schooling or work in schools, it is more likely than not that they will encounter an environmentally sick building. These illnesses can be chronic and last a lifetime, or cause death. So you see, environmentally sick employees and students are impacting the nation in a major way. The bottom line is that our nation's citizens are being made ill in our schools. This is a silent epidemic that is not being addressed by the CDC. This must stop! We ask that you help us educate the public about this very serious problem.
