    My name is Marlene M Jones and I live in Nashville TN. I am interested in your mold documentary. After the 2010 floods we cleaned up but had no idea we had hidden mold and on top of that found a sewer gas leak. My husband got bell’s paulsey (he is a writer and former boxer) and I fell dealthy ill 3 months later (I am a Flight Attendant for nearly 30 years). I almost died. Cime to find out I am that 25% of the population that doesn’t methylate. I have struggled to be heard by doctors (more than 30!) for nearly the last 6 years. I had Suzanne Somers on a number of flights and her husband and had no idea that years later she would also get sick from mold as well. It is truly devastating. Thank you for trying to get the word out there!!

    Thank you for sharing this info on mold. We had a home in Michigan as well in Jackson by Cascades Park and had water leaks in the basement laundry from runoff going toward the home, instead of away from the home. I was deathly sick and then injured my lungs from cleaning products causing me to also acquire Asthmatic Bronchitis….talk about scary! I was depressed, had GERD, inflammation, migraines, memory loss, lack of focus….and it took me a long time to know why. I too googled a lot because the doctors are just not aware. I am happy to say I cleared our new home of toxins (cleaning, laundry, bathing products) and moved out of our home in Michigan. But like you said you can get mold anywhere…even in Southern CA where we moved to! We had it! Moved out of that rental because they wouldn’t do anything to fix it! Thanks again for sharing this and I will be sharing your podcast on our Private FB page! and yes…you rock!
