Molds are everywhere: we inhale their microscopic spores from birth to death. But when an investigation in Ohio revealed that babies suffering from a serious lung illness had been exposed to a toxic black mold in their homes, millions of Americans became nervous about patches of mold in their own basements and bathrooms. Before long, lawsuits were filed by the residents of mold-contaminated homes in every state. Nicholas Money explores the science behind the headlines and courtroom dramas, and profiles the toxin-producing mold that is a common inhabitant of water-damaged buildings.
This remarkably informative small book is well worth a read by anyone afflicted by mould in their home. MicroBiology Today Mycology would benefit from having more popularist writers of Nick Money's calibre! We now look forward to his promised next book. Cambridge University Press
