In brief: Black mold hype

This mania about "black mold" is unwarranted.
Many molds are dark or blackish in color and are ubiquitous in damp climates. Molds can cause respiratory allergy symptoms and very occasionally actual infection in mostly immunocomprimised individuals. The tv hype was just that- hype. They are not the cause of every symptom from a to z.
