MOLD CENTRAL: Health Issues

“An estimated 37 million people in the United States suffer from chronic sinusitis. Our studies indicate that, in fact, fungus is likely the cause of nearly all of these problems.” -1999 Study by the Mayo Clinic

The Mayo Clinic suggests the most common symptoms of mold allergy to be sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose, coughing, postnasal drip, itchy eyes, scratchy throat, itchy nose, watery eyes and the inflammation of the sinuses. Congestion can occur with these respiratory symptoms and can lead to sinus pressure, headache and watery eyes. Is your child’s school safe?
