Symptoms and Disease Caused by Fungal Poisons

Fungal Poisons

Many years ago, Dr Holland and I wrote an article that went viral quickly, thanks to Dr. Joe Mercola.  The article was entitled Is Multiple Sclerosis A Chronic Mycotoxicosis?”.  I believe that we introduced that long word, “mycotoxicosis” to society at large, but sadly, not many physicians know what a mycotoxicosis is to this day. I contend that they are seeing mycotoxicoses (plural) regularly in their practices but are not recognizing them. Simply put, a mycotoxicosis is any symptom, illness or disease cause by any one of the hundreds of pathogenic fungal poisons, called mycotoxins.

A recent article (2) lists 22 common symptoms that veterinarians recognize as being linked to fungal mycotoxins. It then states, “Mycotoxicosis (Tremogenic Toxins) is proving to be yet another reason humans should not feed dogs human food. Fungi found on food contaminants, such as moldy bread, cheese, and English walnuts can be transmitted to dogs.”

Does that say what I think it says, that our human food should be withheld from our pets because our human food may be impregnated with mycotoxins? But we’re eating it!  Know this. If you suffer from any symptom or disease that is not responding to treatment, find a doctor who knows that yeast and fungal mycotoxins can and do contribute to many health problems, including cancer. Usually, a local health food store or a local compounding pharmacist can direct you to a knowledgeable doctor.
