Did you know...?

Chronic Mold Exposure

...that chronic mold exposure in your house, work or school can lead to obesity?

The mechanism appears to be through the development of Leptin resistance. Leptin is a molecule secreted from the gut that --- inhibits food intake and activates thermogenesis in conjunction with insulin. Chronic mold exposure activates a part of the immune system (innate immune system) which leads to damage to the Leptin receptors in the brain. This Leptin resistance leads to weight gain.
