You always offer such challenges... I need to be getting to bed and here
I am searching the web for mildew references!
Some of our grapes have mildew on them, and I wouldn't feed them to my
rabbits because I would not eat them myself!
So, here's what I could find tonight, it's was from a library site but
this is the best I could do:
Mold and mildew can have an adverse effect on people. Those with
allergies, asthma or other respiratory problems should stay away from
infested areas, as many fungi will seriously irritate and inflame lungs.
Some fungi can cause skin and eye irritation and infections. Prolonged
exposure to germinating molds in closed areas (which exist in many
library collections) can damage the lungs, mucous membrane, cornea,
respiratory tract, stomach, intestines, and skin. Some varieties of mold
are highly toxic, such as the strain found in 1990 in the ba***t of
the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York City .
