Children who live in homes with visible mould problems have higher risks for asthma and allergies, a new research review finds.

Researchers found that across 61 international studies since the 1990s, children living in water-damaged, mouldy homes were more likely to have asthma, wheezing problems or nasal allergies than their peers.

While the findings do not prove that mould is the culprit, lab research has suggested that exposure to mould and airborne mould spores can create inflammation in the airways, said co-author Dr Christina Tischer, of the German Research Centre for Environmental Health in Neuherberg.
