ATMOSPHERIC MOLD IS ABUNDANT
An atmospheric test specific to mold detection has been conducted on March 10, 2003 in rural Santa Fe, New Mexico. The results appear to indicate a sufficient cause for concern, as a large number of colonies of several species of mold (Aspergillus, Penicillum, Cladosporium, and Rhizopus) have evolved during the incubation period in a dry high desert environment during a period of extended low moisture. Several species are shown in images on this page. There is clear and direct association between the abundance of mold and respiratory, allergic and asthmatic conditions in humans. It is hoped that additional testing will be commenced by citizens across the nation and globe using indoor and outdoor samples to assess the extent and nature of this environmental condition. Those knowledgeable in mycology are requested to offer their expertise in this matter.
