Justin, a healthy friend of mine, wrote in April 2012:
I was looking for a hotel near Towson MD where I could stay while going out to pick up my son from college. After my last experience at a place so full of mold I couldn't breathe, and I'm not particularly sensitive, I cast a wider net, read the reviews. It appears that almost every motel/hotel within a nine mile radius of Towson has mold (one contractor reported black mold specifically), faulty plumbing, wet carpets and other indicia of toxic mold. I finally located a Courtyard about 9 miles away from the college that had all positive reports and sounded habitable, more than I meant to spend, but hey, it's only my health, right? I think you might add the greater Baltimore area to your list of brownfields or black zones or whatever you call areas unfit for human habitation. If it gets to me, it's pretty damn bad.

I live in Bethesda, Maryland. I feel good outside, but indoor air is more likely to be a problem for me, especially in older buildings. Maryland gets a lot of rain, especially in these years of deluge. We have had more frequent flooding, so I'm sure the mold growth has been exponential. I think I'd give Maryland a 2.
