I am sharing this again as part of National Parkinson’s Awareness month.
Patricia, a fellow mold survivor, friend, and follower, recently commented on the blog post Parkinson’s Disease and Environmental Risk Factors. She mentioned that she had read something linking Parkinson’s with mold exposure. While visiting this site to look at what was written, I also discovered that there was a paper relating low level exposure to Ochratoxin-A with decreased dopamine levels(something that those with Parkinson’s Disease deal with).
Those of us suffering from mold exposure have enough to worry about with the increased cancer risk we face. Now we have to consider early Parkinson’s Disease as well.
This is why I fight so hard to get the word out about mold, mycotoxins, and their affects on the human body.
