Damp Indoor Spaces and Health
Damp Indoor Spaces and Health is a comprehensive review of the science regarding the relationship between damp or moldy indoor environments and adverse health effects, focusing on fungi and their secondary metabolites. Prepared at the request of the Centers for Disease Control, the report makes recommendations and suggests guidelines for public health interventions and future basic, clinical, and public health research related to indoor dampness and mold.
These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on May 25, 2004 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
