Health Alert: Moldy Homes May Increase Asthma Risk in Young Kids.

Children who live in homes with mold or moisture damage appear to be more likely to develop asthma during their first two years of life or if they have a history of allergies than their peers who do not live in moldy or moisture damaged homes. Dr. Michael Lewis from the University of Kansas Hospital adds, “This study isn’t surprising but is significant because it supports what many providers have believed regarding mold and water damage, that it can negatively impact an infant’s or toddler’s lung health.” Pediatrics, March 2015
