www.mold-help.org/content/view/662/ Take a look at the link and you will see why you should treat handling corn more like handling insulation or machine sanding wood or vehicles in a garage. Anyone have any firsthand knowledge or experience with mold on corn and the hazards of breathing it ect? Personally I am going to start tossing the respirator on when I am cleaning mine like I do when sanding bondo. After reading up on the micotoxins present in corn, ( most specificly the fines and dust) I am going to rethink my basement corn bunker and store it outdoors where its safe. Reading up on it I am surprised that considering the adverse effects on the farm animals its fed to its amazing they are allowed to sell corn so nasty. Anyways at the very least the mold issue is worth knowing about and keeping in mind. If anyone has any "don't worry be happy" info besides defensive industry rhetoric I for one would love to hear it. I guess these days you need a respriator when handling anything that creates a lot of dust.
