Lately, I have been increasingly concerned that toxic mold may be lurking in my home (or a previous home) and causing some health effects for me. My son, Ethan, has also been experiencing increases in anxiety, aggression, and problem behaviors. I cannot seem to figure out what has caused this sudden increase. However, I am suspecting mold may be the culprit.
