Death by Mold Research

 

Mycotoxins Causing Death in Infants/Children

Mold Found, Lungs, Brain, and Liver  “Aspergillus versicolor was identified by PCR-DNA analysis in the lungs and brain of the deceased child. Aflatoxin was detected in his lungs, while monocyclic trichothecenes were identified in the lungs, liver and brain.”

Death Toll May Reach 12  “Three Deaths in a Single House, three children from three different families died in a single home.  The Garzas said they had problems with mold and leaks in and outside their home.”

Damp House Death “The coroner’s report into the toddler’s death, says the poor condition of the state house in the South Auckland suburb of Otara was a contributing factor to Emma-Lita’s death.”

Cot Death  “Isla Jackson, living with a family of five in a damp, two-bedroom flat.The letter from the health visitor reads: “This property is not suitable and specifically puts Isla at an increased risk of suffering cot death.”

SIDS & Mattress Mold   “Dr. Sprott states that SIDS is caused by toxic gases that are produced by mold growth within a baby’s mattress. Mold growth is caused when liquids such as milk, juice, and urine are spilled onto them, bedding, and stuffed animals.”

SIDS Guidelines Look for Mold  “Coroners and medical examiners should consider using the recently published Guidelines for Death Scene Investigation of Sudden, Unexplained Infant Deaths, which includes a question about dampness, visible standing water, or mold growth.”

Lungs Bleeding   “As part of the study, the county coroner reviewed all 172 infant deaths for a two-year period. With further tests on tissue samples collected before the infants were buried, doctors found that six of the 117 deaths attributed to sudden infant death syndrome were more likely caused by the mold.”

Pulmonary Hemosiderosis  “Convinced the black mold killed their daughter, Christina and Merunas want to do whatever they can to stop it from killing more babies.”

Probiotic Powder Mold  “The hospital laboratory cultured a mold Rhizopus oryzae from the child’s blood that seemed to be responsible, but where did it come from?”

Fungi in Liver Autopsy    “Findings suggest a relationship between an exposure to trichothecenes producing Stachybotrys fungi and the trichothecenes findings in the liver of the deceased infant.”

Aflatoxins in Brain  “Aflatoxins were detected in 81% of brain specimens in each group. The frequent detection of aflatoxins in the brains of these children and sometimes in multiple forms may suggest that aflatoxins are stored in the brain tissue which could be related to the lipophilic nature of these compounds.”

Mold Illness Leading to Suicide

Suicide Teen FL “If you have any doubt about the damage mold can do, consider the case of 17-year-old Jared Dussault. Within a year, he went from being a bright high school student to committing suicide.”

Suicide Teen Canada  “But Sheridan suffered from a number of serious health conditions — respiratory issues, sleep apnea, thyroid problems, rheumatism that made it difficult for her to walk, diabetes, and obesity. Mould was discovered in their already overcrowded home.”  https://www.facebook.com/APTNInvestigates/

Dr Mary Ackerley on Mold & Suicide  ” This study concluded that there is a low-grade inflammation in the brain in suicide victims. I have patients who will walk into moldy places and their first sign that something is wrong is that they do start thinking about suicide. That’s something that we don’t talk about much but that I do see fairly frequently.”

Suicide Prevention  ” Why do People Commit Suicide? Poor living conditions, illness due to mold, unsanitary water.”

Dr Mercola on Suicide/ Mental Health & Mold  “Unable to identify the cause of their illness, sick people become much sicker over time. Marriages are devastated, livelihoods are lost, and many reach such levels of despair that they end up committing suicide. Brain imaging reveals that mycotoxins can damage your brain, in particular, your amygdala. This can result in experiencing mood swings or rage for no apparent reason. Those with mold toxicity often describe their emotions as “out of control.”

Fungus/Mold Causing Death

Mold Sinusitis  “Eight patients (47%) survived; six of these patients were treated with both amphotericin B and surgery. Postmortem examination of six patients showed evidence of disseminated disease; the brain was the most common extrapulmonary site.”

Kidney Failure “Gardeners should take extra care when handling old bags of compost after a man died from kidney failure after inhaling poisonous fungal spores, doctors have warned.”

Fungal Infection Heart  “Cardiac fungal infection (CFI) is relatively uncommon, but its incidence is increasing. It is associated with a grim prognosis, but some CFI patients can survive given an early diagnosis and aggressive therapy.”

Fungus Balls Within the Heart Cavities.  “The pathogenesis of the infection in this patient is unclear. The organism must have reached the cardiac chambers through the bloodstream, and the point of entry was probably the lungs, which are constantly exposed to the aspergillus spores that are present virtually everywhere in the environment.”

Fungus Eats Man’s Face. “ Mark Tatum,  fungus eats his face.”

Fungal Pneumonia   “A 31 year old male was exposed to high levels of mold spores (up to 29,000 spores/m3) in a newly constructed home in October, 2000. Upon moving in he began to have multiple health complaints, developed pancytopenia and died from respiratory failure and cardiac arrest 4 ½ years later.”

Fungal Infection in AIDS Patients  “Pulmonary fungal infections in AIDS patients are a common and under diagnosed problem. Neutropenia is an important risk factor for pulmonary candidiasis. Our study highlights the need for a high index of clinical suspicion and early aggressive diagnostic intervention in AIDS patients with neutropenia and pneumonia.”

Mold Carcinogen  “Aflatoxins are potent carcinogens and, in association with hepatitis B virus, are responsible for many thousands of human deaths per annum, mostly in non-industrialised tropical countries. Ochratoxin A is a probable carcinogen, and may cause urinary tract cancer and kidney damage in people from northern and eastern Europe. Fumonisins appear to be the cause of oesophageal cancer in southern Africa, parts of China and elsewhere. Trichothecenes are highly immunosuppressive and zearalenone causes oestrogenic effects in animals and man.”

Infection from Sinus to Brain “Cerebral aspergillosis can mimic tuberculous meningitis, pyogenic abscess, or brain tumor. Maxillary sinusitis of dental origin or the lungs are the most common sites of primary aspergillus infection. Infection reaches the brain directly from the nasal sinuses via vascular channels or is bloodborne from the lungs and gastrointestinal tract.”

Fungus in Bag Pipe “A 61-year-old British musician died from “bagpipe lung,” a disease triggered by fungi living inside the much-loved, much-hated instrument, doctors claim.”

Fungal Meningitis Outbreak   “His death was among the first in an outbreak that has killed 14 so far and sickened 170 in 11 states.”

Mold in Steroid Shots Responsible for Outbreak  “All this time, the fungus must have been spreading through the patient’s brain and spine. State and federal investigators have found three different types of mold in samples of steroid taken from the New England Compounding Center in Massachusetts and from spinal fluid taken from some of the victims.”

Fungus Affected Spine & Brain  “Autopsy results published in the New England Journal of Medicine and Annals of Internal Medicine showed that the fungal infection involved the entire spinal cord and brain, and not just the site of the injection.”

Fungus Contributes to Death  “401 autopsies were performed during the study period. Fungal infections were identified in 35 (8.7%) of these cases. Leukemia was the commonest risk factor. The commonest pathogen in the present study was Aspergillus sp. The commonest single organ involved was brain (n = 18). Culture positivity was seen in 23.8% cases.”

Link Between Fungus and Severe Asthma  “The evidence linking asthma severity, including unheralded death, with the intensity of fungal exposure and/or reactivity is strong. The current authors suggest that a phenotype of severe asthma may exist where there is a link with sensitisation to fungal allergens.”

Emerging Fungal Infections in Immunocompromised  “Invasive fungal infections are infections of importance and are increasing in incidence in immunocompromised hosts such as patients who have had hematopoietic stem cell and solid organ transplants. Despite our expanded antifungal armamentarium, these infections cause considerable morbidity and mortality.”

Autopsy Biofilm   “A biofilm including amyloid and SAP is present in invasive fungal infections. This biofilm may dampen host defence leading to the characteristic sparse inflammatory reaction found in these infections.”

Alzheimer’s/ Dementia Fungus in Brain  “Few research groups have focused on fungi. However, Carrasco and colleagues previously reported finding fungal proteins in frozen brain tissue and cerebrospinal fluid from AD patients, but not in controls . Immunostaining detected fungal cells inside frontal cortical neurons from Alzheimer’s patients ”

Necrotizing Cerebritis Caused by Fungus  “Necrotizing cerebritis in an allogeneic bone marrow transplant recipient caused by the neurotropic, dematiaceous fungus Cladophialophora bantiana. 7 months after bone marrow transplantation with fever and sudden onset of left-sided weakness, followed shortly by cranial nerve III and VI palsies. The patient had a lesion of the right midbrain with extension to the pons, the left brain stem, and the right superior and the middle cerebellar peduncles. The diagnosis was made by microscopic examination and culture of a brain biopsy.”

Research Mold is a Causing Massive Death

Mold Silently Killing Millions  “In 2004, after eating food contaminated with aflatoxins, 125 Kenyans died. Reports that black mold is actually killing millions, many without the knowledge of what is happening as they struggle with serious health issues.  A documentary that brings to light the devastating toll on people who live in mold infested houses, or places where they work,  is aptly entitled “Moldy.”

Mold Epidemic  “A leading microbiologist has warned of the increasing threat that killer fungi poses to humans and the environment. New figures show that fungal diseases cause hundreds of thousands of deaths annually, following severe respiratory illness and infections of the blood stream. And now an expert has warned that fungi kill more people than malaria and tuberculosis worldwide, and destroy a third of all food crops.”

Mold Colonizes and Kills  “Some may suffer permanent irreversible damage to their brain, lungs, and other organs.  Some develop “colonization” in the body, fungus stays inside their body and finds areas to colonize.  Areas of colonization normally begin in the mucus membranes and continue into the lungs and then into other areas of the body.  Dr. Croft, a pathologist who has done numerous autopsies on those affected by mold has found fungus in virtually every part of the human body.  People who have colonization in their bodies have a more difficult time regaining their health, and treatment can take years. It is virtually a battle of “kill the fungus before IT kills you.”

Toxic Mold in Buildings Causing Death

4 Professors Dead  “Leading researchers on the health effects of mold exposure say conditions inside the Multipurpose Building may have played a role in the deaths of the four SUNO professors.”

Hospital Systemic Fungal Infection Infant  “It is the fourth lawsuit against the hospital and laundry involving an outbreak of mucormycosis that researchers determined was most likely spread through sheets, towels, gowns and other linens. Caroline Marie Scanlon was two-and-a-half weeks old when she died with what doctors said was a systemic fungal infection that spread to her brain.”

5 Patients Die Mold Infection  “University of Pittsburgh hospital 5th patient with mold infection dies”

3 Children Dead Tampa, St Joseph’s Hospital  “Attorney Steve Yerrid says the children were exposed to a dangerous fungus released during a hospital construction project. Their immune systems already weakened by disease, the children succumbed to mold-related infections, the suit alleges.”

Mold Death Cover Up  “Clark County, NV “Lies, cover-ups and hypocrisy at a government agency that’s supposed to protect the public.Dan Pauluk documented the end of his life in a series of videos. ‘I’m mad as hell!  The Health District ruined my life!  They ruined my family’s life!’ Dan says into the camera. His widow, Dr. Wendy Pauluk, recalls, ‘The pain, the agony, the suffering.  His raw, weeping sores all over his body.”

FL Man Dies From Mold  “ I came home at 5 from work, I found him laying on the rug, and black stuff was coming out of his mouth. Sheldon had been extremely sick for months, short of breath and lethargic, doctors weren’t sure why. Three other neighbors in the building were also dealing with mysterious health issues. I just felt drained all the time, and I didn’t understand why. My dog had rashes on his skin, my daughter was sleeping all day. My voice got really hoarse. I could barely speak. They started to see mold growing on the walls in their apartments before Sheldon passed away. They say they complained, but their landlord ignored their cries for help.”

Asthma Death  “An autopsy concluded the sixth-grader suffered a fatal asthma attack that McGrady says was triggered by either mold, asbestos or both. She filed a wrongful death lawsuit last month, accusing the apartment owner of negligently failing to keep the property safe and warn residents.”

Death of 3 Year Old  “San Diego Mold Attorney Jeff LaFave Wins $2.2 Million in Settlement of Lawsuit Involving the Death of a Three Year Old Child Who was Killed by Mold, Plaintiffs alleged that unremediated mold growth caused a significant amplification of mold in the air, which led to a fatal fungal colonization of Aspergillus in the young boy, who was immunocompromised from a prior kidney transplant and thus more susceptible to infection.”

Infant Death Same Complex Mold  “Ex-tenants-say-mold-caused-ailments-death/Former residents complained of numerous respiratory problems and other ailments. In addition, within 10 days, Ezekiel and another infant in the same apartment building died with toxic mold in their lungs, court records said. Medical experts on both sides of the lawsuit agreed that both babies died of SIDS, even though the cause of death for one infant is officially listed as “accidental smothering.”

Mold Lung Cancer  “First Specialty Insurance Corp. asked a Minnesota federal judge on Friday to prevent it from having to cover Uponor Inc. in a $63 million wrongful death lawsuit alleging the plumbing product manufacturer provided faulty valves to a new house, causing a mold infestation that resulted in a lung cancer death.”

7 Yr Old Dies Asthma  “The family of a 7-year-old girl who died last year from asthma-related causes plans to file a wrongful death suit against the landlord, A toxic mold allegedly spreading sickness and possibly death through an East Side housing development has prompted tenants to sue their landlord for damages totaling nearly $8 billion. At least 125 families living at Henry Phipps Plaza South have filed lawsuits in recent weeks after years of complaints about hazardous living conditions.”

Toxic Gym Death  “Craig died less than two weeks before a report was released that found unsafe conditions at the club, including dangerous mold. The family believes exposure to toxic mold over long hours at work contributed to Craig’s death. Legal papers cite the club’s failure to “remedy hazardous and airborne mold and contaminants.”

Death  by Mycotoxins in Food

Mycotoxins in Pancake Death  “Witness statements indicate that the decedent ate two pancakes; thus he consumed an approximate mold count of 21,000. The decedent had a history of allergies to molds and penicillin, and thus was allergic to the molds in the pancake mix. The authors present this unusual case of anaphylaxis and a review of the literature.”

Mold in Turkey Burger Kills Child  “Ann Marie Cote, of Long Beach, Calif., said her son, Miles Bengco, was allergic to mold and suffered a fatal, “severe anaphylactic reaction” in June 2013 to the fungus contained in Quorn’s Turk’y Burger, the lawsuit alleges.”

Mycotoxins/Mold Killing Animals

Mycotoxins in Dog Food ” The lawsuit claims toxins in Beneful are to blame, listing propylene glycol and mycotoxins as possibly harmful substances in the dog food.”

100,000 Turkeys Death From Mycotoxins  “An outbreak occurred in the UK in 1960, in which 100,000 turkeys died of an unknown disease. The cause of death was identified as aflatoxin-contaminated peanut meal. Alimentary toxic aleukia (ATA), with more than 5000 deaths caused by trichothecene mycotoxins in grain in the USSR late in World War II, was one of the well documented reports of mycotoxicosis.”

Cats Death Toxic Mold  “Retrospective analysis of banked serum from the cats revealed satratoxin G, a biomarker for Stachybotrys chartarum, commonly referred to as “toxic black mold.” Findings highlight the potential risk of acute pulmonary hemorrhage in animals living in an environment contaminated with mold following flood damage.”

Ed McMahon Dog Dies from Mold  “The insurance company botched a simple repair on a broken pipe. As a result, he says, a black toxic mold spread through his 8,000-square-foot, six-bedroom Beverly Hills mansion.Soon after the incident, McMahon says he and his wife became seriously ill, and their sheepdog, Muffin, developed respiratory problems and died. “This is a death mold,” Brown said. “It can cause respiratory illness — or even death.”

Horses Moldy Hay   “Moldy hay can be dangerous to horses. Horses fed on moldy hay can suffer from colic, or in severe cases, die from the toxins called mycotoxins.”

  1. “October 29, 2015
    Justice McConnell,

    …You took an oath of office to protect the public and the Constitution from enemies both foreign and domestic. Yet, with strokes of your twisted pen while trying to make me appear a liar for exposing a massive fraud that harms thousands — you have physically harmed, disabled and killed more Americans than ISIS could ever hope to in their wildest dreams.

    You have the ability to make it stop by recalling the fraudulent remittiturs from the fixed SLAPP suits Kelman & GlobalTox v. Kramer (2005-2013) and Kelman v. Kramer (2010-2013) of your own accord.

    ‘a remittitur may be recalled on the reviewing court’s own motion, on motion or petition after notice supported by affidavits, or on stipulation setting forth the facts which will justify the granting of the order is now determined by rule. (Rule 25(d), Rules on Appeal; 36 Cal.2d at p. 22.)… Other than for the correction of clerical errors, the recall may be ordered on the ground of fraud, mistake or inadvertence.’

    Please don’t act like Bill Cosby and pretend you have not committed crimes until someone makes you acknowledge it. The body count is still piling up from your fraud upon the court. Please recall and rescind the remittiturs of your own accord.”

    1. Sharon,
      It will stop.. I have been quiet in my grief, but I know the will of God is me standing up and it starts with Representative Matt Hudson who made that promise to my son on that day he stood before legislators. He said, “We are committed.” He made a point to ensure my son that something would be done. Nothing has been done.. Nothing..

  2. Are there references for each of these “headlines”? News media reports are generally not reliable and usually lack many facts that declare the headline is not accurate. Journal articles, epidemiology reports from a Federal or State health investigation, are much more important to the industry. Even then, the data may be unreliable and conclusions invalid. Often, as in the case of the Cleveland, Ohio, U.S., hemosiderosis cases, the first conclusion was not supported by either the original raw data (actual circumstances of both environment and health) or latter investigations and separate research (which attempted to explain the physiology of the illness).

  3. Even with spore reports from not one but two toxic mold homes, loosing everything we owned, including my son, my voice falls on deaf ears. Luzerne and Monroe County Housing Authority is covering up the fact that mold ridden homes are being rented to tenants. Funny enough the counties actually own many of those homes.
    I don’t need proof, I lived it once and find myself and my daughter living it again. Met with yelling and blame, even the health dept. is in their pockets. I have been trying to find an investigative reporter or TV station that will cover my well documented story. I am unafraid to tell the truth and show the proof of what is happening to so many with very little voices and lack of knowledge as to what is going on. Please help me have my voice heard before I am unable to physically speak. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    1. Sorry to hear Mary
      I would contact Marco Rubio’s office, and have this looked into. Ask for his staffer that is working on HUD housing Bill, call his washington office, his staffers name is Cecilia. If you can’t get her on the phone send an email. He is fighting this battle but sadly he is in it alone. Also if you want to be heard we are doing a rally there this winter in FL. I can keep you posted on that, if you want to come.
