Understanding Mould

Hundreds of other airborne pathogens are common in the air that we breathe each day. Exposure to these is often not a problem as the immune system destroys them.

This usually explains why someone who has not suffered from exposure suddenly becomes sensitive to it and becomes “sick”.
