HERE’S a weird story about mold: Mom lets her children eat mold because she thinks it will strengthen their immune system.
I know what you want to ask: Is that safe?
Well, let’s just say we wouldn’t recommend it.
Not all mold is toxic, and to be fair, ingesting a little is not likely to cause you any real harm.
The danger is if the mold is poisonous, it could lead to serious side effects, including nausea, headaches, fever, etc.
Our view: Why take the chance?
