SARCOID IN THE NEWS - HABC hit with mold verdict

The Daily record in Baltimore City, Maryland reported that mold will make your sarcoidosis worst. I think it's safe to say that mold is bad and will probably damage healthy people's lungs. The only thing this article is good for is the mention of the disease itself.

"The Housing Authority of Baltimore City must pay more than $300,000 to a former tenant whose lung condition was made worse by the presence of hazardous mold in her home.

A jury in Baltimore City Circuit Court deliberated for three hours Monday before awarding Nornita Hyman $3,384 in rental expenses and $300,000 for pain and suffering.

Hyman, 48, lived in the Mount Winans community in South Baltimore between 1999 and May 2006. Mold exacerbated her sarcoidosis, requiring five hospital stays between 2004 and April 2006, said her lawyer, Scott E. Nevin of the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl. She moved out at the recommendation of a consulting pulmonologist, who diagnosed her with hypersensitivity pneumonitis, Nevin said."
