“The more aflatoxins they had, the more likely they were to have high blood levels of H.I.V. — even those with higher levels of CD4 blood cells, meaning they had not been infected long and were not yet eligible for triple-therapy cocktails under the latest World Health Organization guidelines.
Do you believe it is proven that mold toxins which are also found in water damaged buildings harm human health?
In 2001, two well-connected U.S. toxicologists from the corporation of
Veritox, Inc., applied math extrapolations to data they had taken from a single rodent study of mold. In 2002, a United States policy-writing medical association,
ACOEM, gave credibility to the false concept that the toxicologists’ extrapolations had proven it was “ highly unlikely at best, even among the most vulnerable of subpopulations” that mold toxins in an indoor environment could ever reach a level to harm any human. Yet in 2004 and contradictory to what was being promoted in policy and courts as scientific proof that mold toxins do not harm, the National Academy of Sciences
Institute of Medicine accurately concluded “ Thus results of animal studies cannot be used by themselves to draw conclusions of human health“. In 2015, ACOEM, which gave undue credibility to the false science since 2002, sunset their position statement claiming proof of lack of causation of illness from mold toxins. The sunsetting was caused by the diligent efforts of the
Medical Director of the United States Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
to remove the false concept from policy, medical school teachings and Why has it taken eleven years courts that it was proven mold toxins do not harm, even after it was known since 2004 to be based on a scientific falsehood? What role has industry’s influence over medicine, politicians and the courts played in the long-term delay of removal of this false science from being used to harm U.S. citizens?
Do you believe it is proven that mold toxins which are also found in water damaged buildings harm human health? I do. I also believe it is long past time to thwart unethical practices and word-smithing when setting and maintaining known flawed environmental health policies in the United States and worldwide.
