Some forms of mold produce mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are compounds containing carbon, hydrogen and oxygen that are toxic to other organisms. These mycotoxins are products of the metabolism of various forms of mold. Examples include aspergillus, penicillium, cladosporiun and stachybotrys (with stachybotrys being the feared “black mold”).
In cases where there is no allergic response, the poison that these toxic molds excrete can be responsible for illness.
