The mold hypothesis was automatically generated by discovery of toxic mold in the clusters of "mystery malady" that had baffled the CDC into creating the Chronic fatigue Syndrome.

Evidence[edit | edit source]

The evidence was found by school authorities and testing by mold remediation companies after CFS researchers failed to locate literature and proper testing for toxic mold, and had prematurely concluded that the clusters of illness must be solely due to viral causes.

mycotoxin - "a poisonous substance produced by a fungus and especially a mold"

chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) - A fatigue-based illness. The term CFS was invented invented by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control as an replacement for myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). Some view CFS as a neurological disease, others use the term for any unexplained long-term fatigue. Sometimes used as a the term as a synonym of myalgic encephalomyelitis, despite the different diagnostic criteria.
