The physical effects of mold exposure are difficult to assess because mold is ubiquitous.

The east coast is facing massive repairs, and there will be plenty of mold cases blooming out of the mucky sludge left by the superstorm. Let’s just hope the legal system and the scientific community can come to an understanding that will not make the storm survivors victims of a system that should be helping them.
