If you're a plantiff in a mold lawsuit, show this to your lawyer

If mold has made you sick and you're a plantiff in a mold lawsuit, tell your lawyer to read the front page of the January 9th, 2007 Wall St. Journal.The article is titled,"Amid Suits Over Mold, Experts Wear Two Hats." The article states that a position paper by the American College Of Occupational and Environmental Medicine or ACOEM,has been intoduced by defense lawyers. The paper says that "scientific evidence DOES NOT support the proposition that human health has been adversely affected by inhaled mycotoxins in the home, school or office environment." What the paper doesn't reveal is that the people who wrote the paper are regularly paid experts for the defense in mold litigation.The paper has become a key defense tool used by builders, landlords and insuers in litigation. Your lawyer should base his or her case on a paper issued by the Institute Of Medicine that states:"Studies have demonstrated adverse effects-including immunotoxic, neurologic, respiratory and dermal responses-after exposure to specific toxins,bacteria, molds or their by products."
