D may treat or prevent allergy to common mold - Science Daily, 8/16/10 -
"The environmental mold, Aspergillus fumigatus, is
one of the most prevalent fungal organisms inhaled by people. In the vast
majority, it is not associated with disease. However, in asthmatics and in
patients with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), it can cause significant allergic symptoms.
Up to 15% of CF patients develop a severe allergic response called Allergic
Bronchopulmonary Aspergillosis (ABPA) ... adding vitamin D not only
substantially reduced the production of the protein driving an allergic
response, but it also increased production of the proteins that promote
tolerance" - See

Mould Toxins More Prevalent And Hazardous Than Thought - Science Daily,
12/9/08 - "toxins produced by mould are more potent
than was previously thought. It has now been shown, for instance, that mould
toxins (mycotoxins) not only directly kill cells but can also affect immune
cells in a way that increases the risk of allergies. Even incredibly tiny
amounts of these toxins can do this, as little as a few picograms (a
picogram is one millionth of a millionth of a gram)"

"Shenassa said that given the results of the current
study, he wouldn’t be surprised if there is a cause-and-effect association.

memory, problem solving, sexual behavior, socialization and spontaneity"
