In a recent study partially funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), three types of mold were found to contribute to infant asthma: Aspergillus ochraceus, which produces food-contaminating mycotoxins (substances naturally produced by moulds and fungi that are normally present as some form of defense for the organism.), Aspergillus unguis, a less common species and Penicillium variabile (a type of mold).
