toxic black mold

I found the following site very helpful on the topic of molds -
www.mold-survivor.com
Check the symptoms page where there is a list of 25+ symptoms related to a condition called mycotoxicosis. It's a pretty serious diagnosis. If you have 8 or more of the symptoms, chances are good that you may have that condition.
In my own case, I have only one - hypersensitivity pneumonitis. It seems that whenever I'm exposed to a specific black mold (or two), I go into respiratory arrest, my lungs develop pneumonia-like fibers and only high doses of steroids bring me back to normal.
Please post anything you findout about this condition. It seems to be more prevalent than you'd think. I believe there is even a study started in 2006 that is examining the relationship between toxic black molds and the cause of Autism.
