New Study Finds Fungi (Molds) May Worsen Alcoholic Liver Disease

A new study by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) had shown that intestinal fungi (molds) such as a Candida may contribute to the development of alcoholic liver disease (ALD or Alcoholic fatty liver disease, Alcoholic hepatitis). A disease that is the 12th leading cause of death in the U.S. and accounts for approximately half of all liver disease deaths. (more…)

Tattoo Infections: Tattoo guns and ink may contain toxic mold, bacteria and even cause cancer

Tattoo Infections: Tattoo guns and ink may contain toxic mold, bacteria and even cause cancer

In the West, the art of permanently marking your skin with tattoos is more popular than ever. In a 2015 study, it was estimated that 3 in 10 (or 29%) people in the U.S. have at least one tattoo and the numbers are growing.

A lot of people who get and give tattoos understand the dangers of catching a communicable disease from contaminated tattoo guns, needles, and ink. But not many people are aware that you can also become seriously ill from toxic mold (fungus), bacteria and can even develop a lifelong and often fatal disease like cancer. (more…)

How toxic mold causes malnutrition and impairs growth in children

How toxic mold causes malnutrition and impairs growth in children

It has been well documented that infants and children who have been exposed to mold and mycotoxins suffer from impaired and stunted growth. My research shows that these children are slowly being robbed of vital nutrients, vitamins as they are also being systematically poisoned by these mold toxins. If the exposure is ongoing due to contaminated food and or from a moldy home, malnutrition ensues followed by illness, disease and even death.

This is a serious issue because malnutrition, impairment of growth, stunting and wasting in childhood is a preventable health problem that is causing approximately 10 million deaths yearly and is the cause of 50% of the deaths among children aged 5 and under in developing countries.

Studies have proven that toxic molds (fungi) are a big contributor to these deaths. (more…)

The dangers of mold and mycotoxin exposure to children

(Written By Moe Bedard / Co-authored and Edited by Dr. Tim Jackson) – Many children spend as much as 80-90% of their time every day indoors whether at home or school. It has been estimated that 50-68% of the homes and 85% of the commercial properties in the United States have water damage and toxic mold (fungus). In 1989, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health estimated that up to 50% of illness results from exposure to indoor air pollution with exposure to water-damaged indoor environments likely being a significant contributor to this.

This is truly the #1 health threat to children all around the globe. (more…)
