Mold Benefits?

There are many different types of mold, but not all of them are harmful. In fact mold is pretty helpful a lot of the time. Mold breaks down dead substances and deposits them back into the ecosystem. For example if a tree dies in the woods the mold would break it back down in to soil. Also we eat some molds such as mushrooms. Finally, molds help us create antibiotics such as penicillin and many others. Many say we could not live without mold. Although there are many ways in which mold helps us there are also many molds that are extremely harmful and should be taken very seriously.
