Mold !

Mold is a type of fungus; mold requires moisture to flourish; and you really don't want mold in your home or business.

T-2 mycotoxin is a naturally occurring mold byproduct. When exposed to human skin, effects are wide ranging and there are different reactions.

In the early 1980s, the Soviet Union allegedly supplied several countries with T-2 mycotoxin to be used as a biological weapon against United States and its allies.  Victims of the alleged attacks reported both neurological and physical symptoms including seizures, blindness and bleeding.
