Has anyone heard of Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS)? Would you say it is a real illness that can be treated? It is described as a multi-system, multi-symptom illness.
There are peer-reviewed research papers written about it available here(originally published in well-known and reputable scientific journals such as PubMed and Elsevier/ScienceDirect):
Research papers written about the topic of illness caused by genetic susceptibility to various toxic molds that grow indoors start at #9 on the research paper list at the link provided. They are spread throughout the page along with papers about Pfistieria and Lyme Disease./
The illness mentioned was originally known as Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) and is now known as CIRS by its proponents and practitioners.
The ideas behind the topic (that mold can cause illnesses) are implied to be truthful based on documents from HUD and the EPA, links to such information here:
I have written and delivered a short speech on the topic previously in a communications course. I would like to confirm what I spoke about is based on scientifically truthful information.
I would like feedback from well-informed individuals to know, what do you think of this?
Is it possible for molds growing indoors to cause a multi-system illness, multi-symptom illness? Are the research papers enough for those in the medical community to confirm the illness is real? And that there are proper treatment protocols in place (Shoemaker Protocol/ Surviving Mold Protocol)?
