“Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.” – Elvis Presely

Here is an info graph courtesy of the United States Government’s Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative. The information is in regards to a potent toxin knows as aflatoxin which is a secondary metabolite produced by the mold known as aspergillus. A mold that if often airborne outdoors, indoors and in approximately 25% of our food.

The U.S. government clearly identifies this toxin produced aspergillus as a Class 1 carcinogen. What this means is that aflatoxin causes cancer without a doubt. The info graph also states that it causes immunosuppression, stunting, mental impairment.

What is interesting is that this information provided by the U.S. government contradicts some of the other information they are putting out there in regards to toxic mold. For example, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website in explaining how molds can affect your health, they make it seem like it is no big deal and may cause nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, wheezing, or skin irritation.

This disconnect in information between government agencies is rather disconcerting, to say the least. It is as if one agency is telling the truth that it causes cancer and can kill you and the other agency is purposely obfuscating the data to make it seem like all mold causes in a runny nose.

Unfortunately for the data manipulators and deceivers, as Elvis Presley once said, “Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.”
