I did some investigation on mold in my former job as a senior engineer for an air conditioning manufacturer. Our findings were that there has been NO known deaths associated with household mold, black or otherwise. The general concenses among our field was that this is the backlash of the tabacco law suits. When tobacco was gone so was the big money so the lawyers needed something to fill that gap. Sure, some people may be allergic to mold but they are the same people who are allergic to cat dander, dust, pollen, etc.
