Mold Health Guide

The health guide book for mold understanding.

Information is free. It is gathering and interpreting the information that cost time and money. You can find a lot of information on mold, its health affects, and how to deal with it. Trying to understand the information is another matter. The medical and scientific terms used by the better sources may be difficult to those who don’t have sufficient background in biology and chemistry. The Mold Health Guide explains molds in everyday language. It details where mold exposure may occur, in the home, in the school, in the workplace, in the environment.

There is no truer saying than “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.” The Mold Health Guide has sections on how to prevent and minimize mold exposure. It contains helpful tips on where to look for molds, what to look for, and what to do when molds are found.

This book is written by mold expert Philip Fry, once with the US Public Health Services, National Institutes of Health, also a former hospital and medical center administrator, with first-hand encounter with mold-related health problems.
