Radon, asbestos, products of combustion (such as carbon monoxideand cigarette smoke), volatile organic compounds (such asformaldehyde, benzene, pesticides and some personal care products),particulate matter, lead and a number of known and emergingdisease-causing microbiological agents are discussed in this paper.However, the most space is reserved for the discussion regardingthe secondary metabolic products of molds and bacteria releasedinto the air of water-damaged buildings as these potentially mayharm the most people and because of the disinformation warcurrently being waged suggesting that human disease from thesetoxins cannot exist. Naysayer articles spend valuable print space suggesting thatdisease from mold can only occur after ingestion, or can only occurin the presence of large amounts of aerosolized toxin, or can onlyoccur in an acute exposure. In light of the overwhelmingpeer-reviewed and journal-published evidence to the contrary, it isunimaginable that such papers are still being inked, are stillbeing used in courts as evidence and are still consideredrelevant in any way. It s the Big Lie all over again saysomething long enough and loud enough and many will believe thelie. |
Big Business has been shown repeatedly to use this tacticregarding the dangers of their products, and the histories of suchsubstances as radium, asbestos and coal are evidence of the same.Workers in these industries, and other industries, were exposed todangerous materials for decades while those making the profits knewthe potential harmful health effects. Mold illness, mold-related illness and biotoxin related illnessare euphemisms which are collectively referred to as Multi-systemExposure Related Illness (MERI) in this paper. MERI is amulti-symptom, multi-system disease occurring in many people dueusually to long-term exposure to the interior of water-damagedbuildings. While a massive acute exposure can lead to MERI, themost common mechanism is chronic exposure to low level toxinsleading to an inflammatory response in the body.
Written bytreating physicians and researchers in the field, this paper is acollaborative effort which provides detailed information on thepathophysiology and diagnosis of MERI, as well as details regardingthe treatment protocols used by some of the leading physicians. It is time to move beyond the focus of establishing the fact ofmold disease, because it has already been established in numerousresearch papers and in the treatment of thousands of patients. Itis time for our national and world leaders to develop acomprehensive public health response to this devastating epidemicthat has the potential to cripple our individual and collectivefutures. The paper provides specific recommendations in the Call toAction.
The Global Indoor Health Network looks forward tocollaborating with government agencies and organizations in thepublic and private sector in this search for better health andsafer living and working conditions.
