Can mold cause multiple myeloma?

Mold exposure, particularly from certain types of molds that produce mycotoxins, has been associated with a range of health concerns, primarily respiratory issues. However, as of current scientific understanding, there is no direct evidence linking mold exposure to the development of multiple myeloma. It’s crucial to differentiate between factors that might exacerbate symptoms in those with pre-existing conditions and factors that contribute to the onset of a disease. Mold can certainly cause health problems, especially in susceptible individuals, but attributing it as a direct cause for multiple myeloma is not supported by research.
