Mold in food: Here is what you need to know | Medicine and Health News | Scoop.it
Zafar Hayat Khan's insight:

Good questions in this article answered by experts. Fungus is not something to take lightly. If in doubt throw away suspect food. Fungus has a dead give away smell of dug up dirt, which makes sense, since a lot of fungi come from soil. And people should not inhale fungus. It can be deadly. Lungs are the mostly the first line of attack.
