Mold and Cancer

Is there any relationship between Chaetomium and lung cancer?


Lung cancer is a general term for malignancies in lung tissue. In our data, there is no relationship between exposure to the interior environment of water-damaged buildings and either mesothelioma, adenocarcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma of the lung.

    Is there any link between mold and lymphoma? I am told that certin mycotoxins acgt as triggers to reactivate EBV, and I have read that chronic EBV can increase the risk of lymphoma. I wonder, then, if there is any data regarding the incidence of lymphoma in mold patients.
