Phoenix, AZ, November 11th, 2012 -- Today, the IAQ Video Network and Cochrane & Associates announced the release of another online video to help educate the public about issues that may impact their health. Their latest educational video discusses airborne fungal pathogens and the infections they can cause.
There are serious infections that people can acquire by breathing certain airborne fungal spores. People can come into contact with many of these spores in contaminated indoor environments or from the outdoor air. Three of the more common airborne fungal infections include Aspergillosis, Histoplasmosis, and Coccidioidomycosis.
“These fungal pathogens can cause serious illnesses and even death in some people,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “We hope this video helps to educate people about fungal pathogens and how they can protect their health.”
