The many reviews in the peer-reviewed literature on bioaerosols, human disease, and [myco]toxins generally failed to cite the pertinent scientific literature and mostly quote each of their predecessors reviewing a limited set of pertinent publications. This session will present an evidence-based broad summary of disease and known pertinent mechanisms and diagnostic criteria; toxicological literature on dose, route of exposure, location of toxicity, and risk assessment; and public health practice implications, including the limitations of science, appropriate intervention strategies in the presence of uncertainty, and the consequences of failure to act.
