Black Fungus Risks and COVID-19

Uncategorized Dec 01, 2021

Hey there. My name's Dr. Cameron Jones and welcome to The Mould Show. This week I want to bring to you the key points from a really important recent publication, which just came out in the literature that is focusing on another class of black moulds. Yes, that's right. We're going to be talking about black mould and you might know about black moulds from the infamous Stachybotrys, which has been linked to pulmonary hemorrhage and is very commonly associated with water-damaged and other sick buildings. But there are another class of black moulds and black yeast-like fungi, and we're going to be talking about these today because especially in this era of COVID-19, the COVID pandemic. A publication's just come out, showing that people who recover from COVID-19 are particularly susceptible to post COVID-19 infection with black moulds. And so I want to review what this publication says today and how you can take advantage of this information and how you can potentially make sure...

Clinical Mould Antigen Extracts and Moulds From Water-Damaged Homes

Uncategorized Nov 26, 2021

Hi there. Welcome to the Mould Show. My name's Dr. Cameron Jones, and I'm an environmental microbiologist and public health scientist. Now today on this show, I'm going to be reviewing a recent paper that just came out, which is showing you how you can determine categorically that you are in fact hypersensitive to mould. Now, all of us are concerned about indoor air quality and the potential impact of mould on our health.

For many of my clients, they go to see their doctor or healthcare provider, and they're looking for some way to validate their symptoms and to connect the house or their working environment with some sort of medical information that validates their adverse health symptoms. And there's a really interesting problem. And hypersensitivity and allergy, are the first things that you think about when you think about being exposed to something in your airspace or a bio-aerosol.

So what we're going to be focusing on today is clinical mould antigen extracts, and moulds from...

5 Things To Know About Toenail Fungus And COVID-19

Uncategorized Nov 18, 2021

Summer is approaching, at least for us here in Australia and for some of us, looking down at our toes might bring on a "yuck" reaction. Why are those nails cracked, fragile or showing discoloration? Are you embarrassed by this? What's causing it? How do I stop it? Is this a sign of something worse?

That's the topic of this week's show. And importantly, we're going to be talking about how the health of your toenails and even the health of the nails on your fingers can be used as an indicator of overall health.

To do this, we're going to go through some of the most common questions around nail fungus including symptoms and which groups of people are most likely to get fungal nail infections? What are the terms about this microbial infection and what are the typical fungi that cause this? We'll also talk about some of the environmental hazards for foot fungus as well as how it's diagnosed at the lab and then move on to how you can prevent fungal nail infections and discuss some of the...

How Mould Spores Control Influenza-Like Illness

Uncategorized Nov 10, 2021

Hi there. My name's Dr. Cameron Jones, and I'm an environmental microbiologist and public health scientist. And today I want to talk to you about mold and pollen in the air. Now I know anyone who follows this show knows that I am always concerned about the presence and exposure to, of water-damaged buildings and what that could do to your overall health. But today I'm going to be presenting some interesting and fascinating research that I recently discovered, which is really mind-blowing because it is showing a beneficial effect to mold and pollen exposure.

But before we get into this, I want to review some of the typical molds that are found in the outdoor air, and to a greater or lesser extent, in water-damaged buildings. And to do that, I want to pull up some micrographs that I've taken in my lab that focus on some of the typical molds that can be found in the air space. And the reason I'm doing this is to draw your attention to the tremendous diversity of shape. And shape is...

What Is Dampness and Mould Hypersensitivity Syndrome, Anyway?

Uncategorized Nov 08, 2021

Hello, my name's Dr. Cameron Jones, and I'm an environmental microbiologist and public health scientist. And today we're going to be focusing on another aspect of water-damaged building interiors. And why is this important? Well, many people dismiss exposure to water-damaged buildings as really something trivial, and I'm here to tell you that that is not the case, and we need to take this seriously. But it's not just my word. There are many, many academic publications and clinical research showing that exposure to water-damaged building interiors has a significant negative impact on your overall health and wellbeing. And this particular show is aimed directly at those individuals who think or know that they are being exposed to water-damaged building interiors.

And I'm going to be presenting some research information which I hope you can use and take advantage of, especially if a dispute arises between, for example, yourself and a landlord or a property manager, or if you're...

Avoid the top 8 asthma and allergy triggers in your home

Uncategorized Oct 29, 2021

Hello. My name is Dr. Cameron Jones and I'm an environmental microbiologist and public health scientist. And this week we're going to be going over allergic illness and asthma.

In Australia, one in nine people is affected by asthma. And whenever I do indoor air quality and water damage and mold inspections, I'm always looking for those features inside people's homes and offices, which could contribute to adverse health. And a wonderful publication was just published at the end of September 2021, which was looking at this very problem. And today I'm going to be summarizing the research and also bringing to you a survey that you can take. It's for free. It's available on my website and also in a hyperlink in the show notes. And you'll be able to assess your own risk around the home yourself. But what are we talking about? What is asthma? Well, asthma really is a problem affecting your airways, meaning that it is difficult to breathe. And anyone who has seen an asthmatic having an...

Victoria's Freedom Day - What Will Happen?

Uncategorized Oct 22, 2021

Hello. My name is Dr Cameron Jones, and I'm an environmental microbiologist and public health scientist. And in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, it is Victoria's chance at Freedom Day. Yes, this is the day that we are allowed and permitted to leave our homes and re-enter society. However, this is only at the expense of needing vaccine mandates, vaccine passports. Essentially, Victoria is in a state of medical apartheid. Without having access to your vaccine status, many of us will be refused entry into many public places and retail businesses.

All of this is a significant form of coercion, and we really no longer have free choice. And I wanted to make this video today, on Freedom Day, because a publication came out overnight which is reviewing the situation when an outbreak occurred over the 4th of July weekend in the United States, and I want to focus on what that research says because they were in a similar situation to some states as us in Australia, and I want to talk about this...

What You Should Know About Portable Air Filters

Uncategorized Oct 20, 2021

Hello, my name's Dr. Cameron Jones and I'm an environmental microbiologist and public health scientist. And this week, we're going to be looking at an extremely important non-pharmaceutical intervention for the prevention of respiratory diseases. And yes, of course, many of you in Australia would be aware that in New South Wales and Victoria to a greater or lesser extent, the states are opening up. Now, one of the things, if any of you have been following this in the mainstream media is the fact that the governments are about to introduce indoor air quality as something which is extremely significant for especially schools to be aware of. And because every day in my job working with water damaged and mold affected buildings, I know firsthand the value of HEPA air purifiers. But what are they? How do they work? Are some better for you? Do some work more efficiently?

What do you need to look out for when you jump online or go back to your favorite high street retailer for portable...

Hi there. My name is Dr. Cameron Jones and I'm an environmental microbiologist and public health scientist.

And this week, we are talking about something that could potentially affect all of us. And the concept for this week's live stream is actually a colleague of mine who sent me an email telling me about a paper that he had just had published. And I thought that this is an absolutely fantastic publication that I want to draw all of my listeners and viewers' attention to. And the topic is, What Can Danish Nurses Tell Us About Heart Health and Air Pollution? And no, I'm not making a joke or focusing on a particular group of people for your amusement.

And that's why I want to bring this to your attention.

So before I jump in and dive into some of the key research conclusions and how you can take advantage of this information in your...

Tips about Lactoferrin and COVID-19 you need to know

Uncategorized Oct 09, 2021
Many high-income countries including Australia have been playing vaccine roulette with our public health. Lockdowns and personal restrictions have been applied while institutions wait for the vaccine effect to kick in. I’m not here to question the principle of immunization that prevents disease transmission and infection which in many areas of application is effective. BUT...The problem is that the majority narrative for vaccine safety has not adequately looked at complementary strategies like other treatments, strengthening the health system, non-pharmaceutical prevention, promotion of safe infection control practices and perhaps above all, a healthy lifestyle. This talk will look at another complementary strategy and is a follow-on from my OpEd paper and talk on the potential benefits of nicotine against COVID infection. A comment on this video suggested I should make a video on some outstanding University of Michigan research just published at the end of August 2021. I was...
