Mycotoxins produced by mold have long been established, researched, and evaluated. Veterinarians were the first to research and actually discover the toxin produced by mold when contaminated feed killed livestock in 1962. Mycotoxins are also monitored by the FDA in food products such as grains, coffee, nuts and other food ingredients.

More recent evaluations have included mycotoxins produced by mold in our indoor environments and their health effects. This is where mold inspectors and assessors come into the picture. Many are unaware of the more recent research that has established aerosolization of mycotoxin particulates in indoor environments where mold has been present. It’s natural to think that if I take care of mold, I take care of mycotoxins, but are you? And what are the implications?
