Indoor Mold: Better Coordination of Research on Health Effects and More Consistent Guidance Would Improve Federal Efforts

Front Cover
DIANE Publishing, 2009 - 65 pages
Recent research suggests that indoor mold poses a widespread and, for some people, serious health threat. Federal agencies engage in a number of activities to address this issue, including conducting or sponsoring research. For example, in 2004 the Inst. of Med. issued a report summarizing the scientific literature on mold, dampness, and human health. In addition, the Federal Interagency Comm. on Indoor Air Quality supports the EPA┐s indoor air research program. This report deals with the health effects of exposure to indoor mold: (1) the conclusions of recent reviews of the scientific literature; (2) the extent to which federal research addresses data gaps; and (3) the guidance agencies are providing to the general public.
