Episode 6 - Mould, Indoor Air Quality, Asthma, Diabetes and You
Today we'll be discussing some key facts about mould and dampness and your health. I'm going to review some of the main health issues people might experience if they spend time indoors inside a mould affected building and I'm also going to discuss some of the current research about airborne mould particulates and diabetes. Now, this is surprising! Because unwanted moisture is the cause of so much mould related problems like asthma, I'm also going to highlight a few case studies and provide some tips for minimising mould growth if you do unfortunately experience storm related water damage or have an unwanted plumbing problem in your home.
Take aways from this episode include a greater understanding of some of the classic and emerging health impacts that can occur from mould exposure as well as some of the ways to reduce these risks.
