How to make yourself sick....
    #872530 - 09/09/02 03:00 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

i was recently emptying some jars out that had been contaminated by aspergilus niger and the green mold. i was doing this in my bathroom, when one of the jars unexpectantly released a huge cloud of green and black spores. i must have breathed some of these in because i am now feeling like i have the flu. my muscles ache and i feel tired. i assume this is the immune response to the invading spores. this has happened once before and i wasn't sure what it was although i suspected the spores. word to the wise: don't inhale huge clouds of spores.

That stuff can get you really sick, take care and go to the hospital if you don't feel any better.

Yuck!!
Good advice is to wear a dust mask, or empty the jars underwater in a bleach solution.

Good luck

better yet, just throw contaminated jars away without opening them at all. An entire box of jars costs a few bucks... compared to the expense of seeing a doctor...

Cmon fool getting sick and possibly paying thousands in medical and E.R. bills for inhaling some nasty mold spores just to save hmmmmm $5 ? Job or no Job its better to be alive than to save $5 you thrifty shopper...

I had two cases that were contaminated(with different contams too!) that I looked at and decided it would be better to toss and loose $10 or so and say healthy. Oh I am also unemployed so thats not a good enough excuse, if thats your justification you deserve to get sick.

Could always open the jars under water. That'd at least stop any airborne contaminant from gettin ya.

Jars are about $.50 per where I am from. I am also surrounded by thrift stores where appropriate vessels can be obtained for $.10 - .25 each. Given that some of the contaminates that we encounter can have devastating LONG TERM health effects, I would rather toss than risk hurting myself.

Even if you sterilize a jar before emptying it out, you can come in contact with some pretty nasty toxins by opening it up.

I understand being broke. I am hoping that my 401k disbursement from the job I got laid off from a few weeks back comes through before all my bills are overdue. But I assume that you are probably using these jars to produce a product for which there is considerable demand. I am not suggesting that you go into business selling them, but perhaps there is a friend who would be willing to spring for a case or two of jars in exchange for some of the resulting products?

Please take care of yourself.

please be careful with contaminated stuff, most of it is harmless but there are some nasties out there. Aspergillus niger being one of them.

here are some links:

http://www.emedicine.com/med/byname/aspergillosis.htm

http://www.mycology.adelaide.edu.au/mycology/myco.nsf/2006532373646b77692565c300171806/d1e5d6646403d651292565c6001e9ac6?OpenDocument

http://www.enviroanalysis.com/v1n3p4.htm

to quote a few lines from that last page:

Aspergillus niger is the third most common aspergilli associated with disease and is more common than any other Aspergillus species within the genus and is found in and upon the greatest variety of substrates. It is commonly associated with "fungus ball", a condition wherein fungus actively grows in the human lung, forming a ball, without invading lung tissue.


My advice: throw the contaminated jars out, DON"T OPEN THEM.

In response to: "throwing away jars is a luxury for those of use who have jobs. i don't"

So going to the hospital and paying huge medical bills is something you CAN afford?

Don't play with your health
