|Exposure to indoor mold, bacteria, water damage, and particulates have been associated with development of dementia. A case series was presented of 7 patients (aged 50 to 72 years, mean age 57) who developed Alzheimer’s type III dementia following documented exposure to indoor mold and water damage 1.|
Epidemiological evidence also suggests a link between indoor mold and water exposure and dementia 3. Finland has the highest rate of dementia deaths in the world, and also has a very humid climate in which relative humidity often exceeds 80% in the winter.
