What's Mold Got to Do With It?

We all have heard now about the "toxic mold" growing in houses in New Orleans. Yet, people are being allowed back into the city, as buildings with mold are being raized and the mold spores travel around. What could the effect be from exposure to this mold? See this 1999 USA Today article...

IT STARTED with a series of leaks. Within a year, Melinda Ballard's 11,500-square foot Texas dream home was quarantined; her 3-year-old son, Reese, was on daily medication to treat scarred, asthmatic lungs; her husband, Ron Allison, had lost his memory along with his job; and the family was living out of suitcases and locked in a seemingly endless battle with their insurance company. The problem? Household mold.
