adverse health effects.

DRY, HACKING COUGH

Children and the elderly are most susceptible to the adverse effects of mold because their immune system is weaker and they are less resistant to the chemical effects of the myotoxins. People who are undergoing medical treatments or who have a suppressed immune system react very negatively to the presence of mold. They’re so many species, each with different health risks so it can be difficult to diagnose an issue by just knowing the symptoms alone.
