Imagine becoming so sensitive to almost everything you're exposed to daily like common chemicals, furniture, foods, and pollen that it makes you so ill you can't function. You must isolate yourself from others. You become unable to work, the doctors don't believe you, and neither does your family. You're mocked and you struggle daily to maintain your surroundings and health. Watch this entertaining and shocking film as filmmaker Michael Roland Williams chronicles the agonizing struggle of those who have endured after being exposed to toxic mold. Most are still overwhelmed with debilitating symptoms years after exposure, while doctors, lawmakers, and attorneys take sides and dismiss their claims. Black Mold Exposure follows Michael Roland Williams, filmmaker, and Karen Noseff, founder and designer of Fortune Denim, struggling to regain their livelihood and well-being after they were unknowingly exposed to high levels of various molds that had infested Karen's apartment.

An important documentary about a very serious health problem
7 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The main story is about two people who have become sensitized to mold toxins while living in a moldy house. It portrays the life of these two people along with the life of many others who have the same affliction or are somehow connected to the issue. There is a notable appearance of Dr. David Staus from Texas Tech University. Since 1993 he has studied how mold toxins (mycotoxins) cause health problems to people who are exposed to them.

This health problem is so huge and so devastating to those who are sensitized, yet many people who are personally not affected (and thus have no problems themselves in the same environment) feel that the whole thing has been overblown. They think the mold sensitized people are mentally ill, malingers, hypochondriacs etc. Nothing could be further from the truth. Common allergies are like nothing when compared to the health problems caused by mycotoxins. It is nothing less than the difference between sneezing due to allergy and being poisoned by biological weapon of mass destruction (which trichothecene mycotoxins really are).

That's why it is very important that this movie exists, as a testament from the bravest people in the world: "moldies" - men, women and children that go out of their way in order to avoid these toxins.
