"Environmental toxic mold exposure is a massive health crisis that very few are aware of," said Asprey. "Mold toxins have been linked to damaging long-term effects including memory loss, insomnia, anxiety, depression, trouble concentrating, and even cancer and heart disease."

From your home to your wine to your food… toxic mold is hidden in more places than you might think, and it can cause some serious health repercussions for those affected by it. In this interview, Dave Asprey — the Bulletproof Exec — explores the world of toxic mold with us. He sheds light on the common symptoms of mold exposure, diagnosing mold in your home and steps for removing mold & improving air quality in your habitat. He reveals startling information about mold in our food supply and gives us the rundown on some of the more common culprits.

Prepare to be enlightened…and possibly a little unsettled, as I was when I first watched Moldy!
