“Major depressive disorder, neuroticism, suicidal behaviors, and depression severity are all associated with neurotoxic immune networks and their intricate interactions with metabolic syndrome’’ (Maes et.al., 2024)

“Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and depression, have been regularly associated with insecticide exposure’’ (Cassereau et. al., 2017)

Mold and Mycotoxins ​Exposure and Brain ​Disorders (​2023)

“Mycotoxins have significant toxic ​effects on the brain as well as the ​peripheral nervous system. Studies ​have shown that mycotoxins can ​cause myelin loss, leading to ​symptoms similar to multiple ​sclerosis, chronic inflammatory ​demyelinating polyneuropathy, and ​other demyelinating disorders. ​“[para.6]


Lithium induced Akathisia

“Lithium carbonate (600 mg/d) was ​started for mood stabilization and ​soon, thereafter, she developed ​akathisia”

What is Akathisia really?

“Akathisia has been known to cause ​suicides and homicides.”

Explosion of an Electric Bulb

“Some studies suggest that the parasite Toxoplasma gondii (T. gondii) may be linked to suicide attempts, however, there needs to be meta-analysis completed for solid probability. For example, a 2012 study in The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that people who test positive for the parasite are seven times more likely to attempt suicide. The study also found that those infected with T. gondii scored higher on a suicide assessment scale, indicating a greater risk for future attempts.”

Mold Exposure and Neuropsychiatric Effects in Adults

In this article Mojtaba (2023) states, ”In other research, mold-exposed patients also showed symptoms of neurological dysfunction compared to controls, including the inability to walk with eyes closed in a straight line, failure to stand on one’s toes, verbal recall impairments, altered blink-reflex latency, short-term memory loss, as well as reaction time issues and problems with color discrimination”.

HLA gene variations and mycotoxin toxicity: Four case reports


In this article Saghir (2024) states, “People living or working in moldy buildings complain of a variety of health issues ranging from allergies described above to suffering from serious health issues (e.g., neurotoxicity [increased anxiety, depression, and cognitive deficits], nephrotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, and cancer) from prolong high levels of exposure to certain toxic molds (Bennett and Klich 2003; Empting 2009; Kohler et al. 2015; Harding et al. 2020; WHO 2023).”
