Erik Johnson is an advocate for mold avoidance as a treatment for myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). He is the subject of the book Back from the Edge by Lisa Petrison, and has published several books of his writings on extreme mold avoidance. He is also a regular contributor to the blog Paradigm Change.

Erik became ill in the 1970's due to toxic mold and had been a student at Truckee High School which had its own outbreak of Sick Building Syndrome during the same time period of the 1984 Incline Village chronic fatigue syndrome outbreak, but he recovered in the late 1990s as a result of extreme mold avoidance. He has since spent his time working with scientists on the role of mold toxins in chronic illnesses, as well as producing educational materials.[1]
