Before we get into all the serious stuff, I thought you might enjoy a good laugh. A cartoonist, who lives near me, offered to have his daily comic strip on my site. I accepted. It is commonly known that laughing is very good for you and your health. So, enjoy.

Welcome to my web site. My name is Daniel Mark Norris Newton Davis. I am the Mold Missionary. I used to live in the wet climate of Oregon. Now I live in Alaska, where the mold problems appear to be extensive. After toxic mold devastated my health, with many multi-systemic and degenerative health problems, it became my mission to research and understand how toxic mold was capable of degenerating my body so rapidly. My quest revealed that toxic mold plays a major role in many health problems, including degenerative diseases, aging and the degenerative processes of the human body. My research comes from the logical, practical and complexly simple viewpoint of a mold exposure patient who has experienced it. The past several years I have been collating the best research from around the world. Then I applied that research to successfully reverse the degenerative effects toxic mold had on my own health. As a result, I now enjoy some of the best health of my life. It is now time to enlighten the world with the results of my research.

If you have any toxic mold in your home, school or workplace, your health is probably being affected in ways you do not realize is connected to toxic mold. Especially if you or your child experience any of the following;
----chronic unexplained headaches
----memory and retention problems
----comprehension and concentration problems
----fog brain and lightheadedness
----loss of co-ordination
----high anxiety and heightened irritability
----sensitivity to light or sounds
----chronic sinus problems
----chronic stiff neck, unresponsive to massage
----asthma especially if triggered inside home
----unexplained rashes and skin problems
----dried cracking hands and fingers
----candida or yeast infection
----restless leg syndrome
----irritable bowel syndrome
----chronic unexplained depression
----chronic fatigue syndrome
----or adverse reaction to antibiotics
All of these health symptoms, and many more, can be caused by toxic mold found in a home, workplace or school. It can be growing inside the walls, above the ceiling or, under the floor. It does not have to be visible on the walls or ceiling in order for the occupants to be affected. Toxic molds produce mycotoxins which are harmful to the brain and vervous system. Some of the same toxic found in homes, workplaces and schools are concentrated and weaponized to make some of the most powerful biological weapons on Earth, the T-2 Mycotoxin Biological Weapons.
Unfortunately, most doctors receive very little training in mycology during medical school, less than veterinarians. As a result, a toxic mold exposure is usually not correctly identified as the cause of a toxic mold exposure patient's health problems. Too often this results in misdiagnosis, sometimes with tragic consequences.
I have personally experienced most of the above mentioned health symptoms, as a result of my own toxic mold exposure. The past several years I have been collating the best research from around the world. I applied that research to successfully reverse the dramatic degenerative effects toxic mold had on my own health. As a result, I now enjoy some of the best health of my life.
This site will show you how toxic mold in our environments can affect people and their pets. The three underlying causations of degenerative health problems from toxic mold are explained as well as the communication of symptoms they manifest. The role mold plays in disproportionate rates of degenerative disease for different races and socio-economic groups is explored. How womens health is especially affected by mold is identified.
Mold spores are in the air everywhere looking for the moisture required to grow. Water from a shower, a leaky faucet or toilet provides all the moisture needed for them to grow and multiply. If dampened wood or sheetrock is not dried out within 24-72 hours, mold will grow! Usually by the time mold becomes visible, it has already established colonies inside your walls, ceilings and/or floors. It starts affecting human occupants long before it becomes visible.
Mold spores and the mycotoxins they produce are far from harmless. Some of them are extremely dangerous, especially when concentrated inside a building such as a home, workplace or school. The longer a person, especially a child, is in a building where there are concentrated levels of a toxic mold, the more their health will be affected.
ANY element entering your body have an affect on the chemistry of your body. How much toxic molds affect the chemistry of people is dependent on a number of factors;
1) The particular species of toxic mold. Different molds affect different people in different ways.
2) The concentration level of the various molds inside the home, workplace or school.
3) The length of exposure.
4) Your genetic susceptibility. 24% of us are genetically more susceptible.
5) The level of mold fungi already accumulated inside your body.
The human body has difficulty cleaning mold fungi from the mucous membranes throughout the human body, even under normal circumstances. When a person is exposed to heightened levels of mold, especially toxic mold, the cleaning systems are fighting a losing battle. More and more mold fungi and their mycotoxins accumulate at a rate faster than the cleaning systems are able to clean them out of the body. This overloads the cleaning systems, especially the lungs and the liver. The incoming mold fungi get deep into the lungs and inhibit the lungs from getting required amounts of oxygen needed by the body. The liver is overloaded trying to process all the mycotoxins out of the body. If the accumulating levels of mold fungi and their mycotoxins is not reversed, it will inevitably lead to degenerative damaging of the liver.
Since the beginning of time molds have been Mother Nature's recyclers of all biological material. It is the job of mold to decompose, degenerate, and break down all biological components to their basic elements and return them to Mother Earth, from whence they came. Dust to Dust. The cycle of life. And we are biological.
Mold Fungi need two things to grow; moisture and biological nutrients. Structural molds suck the moisture and nutrients out of building materials like sheetrock and wood. Sheetrock then crumbles, and wood degenerates into dry rot. Where there is dry rot there is a mold problem. Mold is what turned that wood into dry rot.
In people, especially children, these same structural molds can suck the moisture and nutrients right out of the body. Although this degenerative process is more complex in the human body than in sheetrock or wood, these same molds still attempt to do their job. Our bodies provide all the moisture and nutrients, such as carbohydrates, which molds need to survive and grow. They deplete the body of moisture, causing dry skin and scalps. Dandruff is a fungal condition. This is why dandruf shampoos have an antifungal ingredient.
They love carbohydrates, depleting the body of them. This leaves the body craving sugar carbohydrates. It is better to replace the depleted carohydrates with green vegetables. Mold fungi are non-chlorophyll in nature, and don't like a chlorophyll rich environment. Replacing the depleted carbohydrates with sugars feeds them, making them stronger.
The human body is always trying to adjust to changing environmental conditions. Toxins such as mycotoxins are stored in the fat tissues. The more mycotoxins and other toxins accumulating inside the body, the more fat the body will produce to store the toxins in. Every fat reduction program should include a detoxification program. If you reduce the fat without reducing the toxins, the body will grow the fat right back to store the toxins in.
In nature, it is all about survival. To them we are simply a supply of moisture and biolological nutrients they require to survive. As they consume moisture and nutrients from our bodies, it puts in motion a chain reaction of cause and effects, degenerating the human body. Underneath the complex spiderweb of cause and effects is the underlying causations of mold fungi just doing their job.
There are three ways toxic mold degenerates the human body:
The first way toxic mold degenerates the human body is dehydration. This is due to their sucking the moisture out of the body for their own use. This contributes to a state of under-hydration in the body. Often this is further complicated by consumption of dehydration substances, such as caffiene soda, coffee or alcohol. The human body can survive longer without food than it can survive without water (H2O). Water (H2O) is one of the two main ways the human body takes in the oxygen it requires, in order to stay generative.
The second way toxic mold degenerates the human body is the production of mycotoxins, which mold fungi use to kill off their microbial competitors. These mycotoxins are very harmful, as they damage the brain and central nervous system. This is why they concentrate and weaponize some of these same structural molds, which are found in homes, workplaces and schools, into some of the most powerful biological weapons on earth, the T-2 Mycotoxins.
The third way toxic mold degenerates the human body is interruption of the circulatory system by immune complexes. In reaction to the mold fungi invading the human body the immune system forms immune complexes, or antigen-antibody complexes. They combine the mold antigen with their antibody to form these complexes. These immune complexes seek out and destroy the microbial invaders. The more mold fungi entering the body, the more immune complexes formed, and the more immune complexes circulating in the blood circulatory system.
Since the mold antigen is so large these particular immune complexes end up being so large they often get stuck in, and block, the smaller capillaries. The blood capillaries are noodle-like passages used to get oxygenated blood from the arteries to the cells and tissues. The cells and tissues require an adequate flow rate of oxygenated blood to repair themselve and generate to live. This restriction of the blood flow rate, with the blood's life-giving element of oxygen, causes the cells and tissues to degenerate and die. With the heart continuing to pump blood, the pressure of blood building up behind these blockages can contribute to high blood pressure, and increase the possibility of a stroke or heart attack. They also dramatically impair the body's ability to heal, especially in the muscle and skeletal system.
The bottom line is this. We accumulate mold fungi in our bodies faster than our bodies are able to clean them out, even under normal circumstances. If we live in an environment where the levels of mold fungi are concentrated at high levels, they will accumulate in our bodies even faster. Inside a home, workplace or school with a mold problem, the accumulation of mold fungi in our bodies accellerates at a rate corresponding to;
1) the qualitative strength(type of mold)
2) the quantitative strength(concentration level)
3) the duration of your exposure and
4) the level of previously accumulated mold fungi in your body.
The main route toxic molds use to enter and accumulate inside the human body is;
Men and women are affected differently due to their physiological differences and many generations of evolutionary adaptation to our environments.
There is much yet to understand about the Mind / Body connection. The subconscious autonomic communication network is constantly collecting information about our physiological condition from throughout the body. It attempts to communicate this information to our conscious mind to help us make important decisions. One way it attempts to communicate physiological conditions to us is through emotions and symptoms.
Animals have historically been used to warn people of harmful elements in our environments. Animals and pets are also affected by toxic molds in our environments.
This web site and research work depend on contributions for it's support. Contributions are appreciated and needed to further the research. It is very important that this work proceed as fast as possible to reduce unnecessary pain and suffering for millions of people around the world. If you have been helped by this research, or feel the work is worthy, please make a monetary Donations today. There are many research projects I wish to initiate, especially the 'Domestic Violence Project'. This project would test the participants and their homes for toxic mold to establish a causational relationship. The only way this will happen is through contributions. You are always welcome to email me with ANY questions you have. Thank you, Dan Davis
