SILENT KILLERS: Toxic house mold, Just a few of the dangers that lurk quietly
They can invade your home, making you sick and forcing you out. They are the silent killers -
environmental problems that strike without warning, causing serious - and even fatal illnesses.
Remember Erin Brocovich, The antipollution crusader whose story became a oscar-winner for Julia Roberts ?
She has a new cause. Her million-dollar home has been invaded by a toxic mold called
stachybotrys, which Brocovich says has given her 10-year-old daughter and her husband a variety of respiratory and other ailments. She herself suffers from constant exhaustion, swelling and rashes. She is suing the builder, claiming faulty constuction, and is dismantling her dwelling, room-by-room,ridding it of mold. "i'm not coming out of this place and I'm gonna fight my way through it to the very end," she says.
Stackybotrys has been found in all 50 states and can cause serious and, sometimes, deadly health problems. Steve and Karen orath of Forresthill, Calif., took a drastic step when they found it in their home. Because they had neither the money for repairs nor prospective buyers, they had the fire department torch it, a tempting idea for other sufferers, like Melinda Ballard of austin, Texas. Melinda said the toxic mold made her family very ill anf forced them out of their multi-million dollar mansion. They sued their insuance carrier, saying the company did not pay them enough money to repair water leaks. The Ballards recently were awarded $32 million at trial, but the insurance company plans to appeal.
Experts say the family was being poisoned by black toxic mold, called Stachybotrys. The mold, which has been found in all 50 states, in homes, businesses and schools, had invaded their house. Some strains of Stachybotrys cause allergies, asthma and skin rashes. Others produce mycotoxins, released into the air. these toxins can seriously damage the lungs and central nervous system.
