Types of Molds and Their Health Effects

What are all the different molds and what health problems do they cause?

There are thousands of types of molds, far more than we can do justice to in a small paragraph here. But we do host a mold glossary, which you can explore here:

Heath effects of moldy environments vary because most reactions are allergic in nature, even though some molds produce poisonous mycotoxins. We can generalize here and say molds trigger allergic reactions ranging from wheezing, sneezing, shortness of breath, skin rashes, upper respiratory irritation, coughing, eye irritation, headaches, and lethargy. However, the symptoms and their intensity can vary with each individual.
