    Mold forms on bread when it sits out in the open or moist room for a few days. There is a type of organism called a spore. It floats around in the air until it lands on something.

    There are many types of mold! Most will not cause cancer but the worst is black mold! That type is very toxic and anyone exposed to it for a long period of time can not only get severely ill, but can die because it causes serious problems in the lungs!

Dont forget, cancer isnt just one disease but many! Over 200 I believe! The word cancer is just one word to mean many!
