Black Mold; the facts, not the fake news.
The media loves a good story and the more sensational it is the better. The color of the mold is not the concern, it is the toxicity of the mold. To understand this we need to know a few terms. Mycotoxins are molds that produce toxins, and they are known as Stachybotrys. Some black molds fall in this area , but so do white, orange, green, and red molds to name a few. The facts are the conditions that produce molds with mycotoxins are not know and the color does not need to black.
