From Townsend Letter, July 2009.
"Microbes, Toxins and Unresolved Conflicts: A Unifying Theory," by Scott Forsgren, pp 62-64.
"If we take the impact of toxins on microbes one level higher, we must consider the effects of electromagnetic radiation, a very powerful toxin to the human body. Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) from cell phones, cell towers, cordless phones and other sources strongly drive the growth of many microbes within us.
"Molds, for example, increase their rate of growth and put out far more virulent mycotoxins in the presence of EMFs. They feel they are being attacked and respond by fighting back. It is suggested that all levels of the microbiome are influenced by electromagnetic radiation, including viruses, spirochetes, mycoplasma, streptococci, staphlococci, and numerous others. Thus, in looking at the impact of toxins on microorganisms, we must not only consider our internal toxic body burden. We must look at the toxic forces around us and make every effort to minimize the external toxins, which also have powerful disease-promoting properties."
Note: It would seem that if EMF's do cause molds to release more toxins and worse toxins, this would apply both to molds growing in the environment (such as stachybotrys) as well as any molds that might be growing in our bodies (such as aspergillus).
