Fall Mold Allergies

What is Mold?

Molds are an important part of our environment as they cause things in our environment to naturally decompose.  That is why we commonly think of mold in the fall because mold is present on the fallen leaves.  Mold naturally reproduces by releasing tiny particles called spores into the environment and this is interesting to me as an allergist and asthma specialist because inhaling  these spores can cause allergy and asthma symptoms.
