The trichothecene mycotoxin produced by black mold is a neurotoxin that kills the neurons and damages the functioning of the brain after it enters our bloodstream. Resulting black mold symptoms that affect the mental ability of our brains include anxiety, apathy, brain fog, aggression, and confusion, and they can greatly affect a person’s attention span.
Other symptoms include depression, disorientation, hallucinations, migraines, dizziness, memory loss, fainting, lethargy, panic attacks, and seizures. Black mold symptoms can also affect a person’s personality. It greatly affects young children and infants as their mental development is delayed and in some cases also causes Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), which is the sudden unexplained death of a child less than one year of age.
