Mycotoxin Testing

Mycotoxins are a naturally occurring toxin produced by molds (fungi) and are found in a variety of different foods including cereals, nuts, spices, dried fruits, apples, coffee beans as well indoor buildings1,2. Exposure to molds is most associated with allergies and asthma, however, it is also associated with other health problems since specific mycotoxins can be absorbed by the skin or otherwise ingested. Some molds can impact the nervous system, oxidative stress, inflammation, immune cell activation, cause leaky gut which can contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder2,3. A recent systematic review showed a correlation between mold exposure in children’s homes and school environments with occurrences of respiratory issues, including infection, repeated wheezing and prolonged cough. Several studies found a significant neurological link between cognitive-developmental deficiencies and long-term exposure to molds3.
