Sick Buildings

Can a "sick" building cause or exacerbate mental illness? Toxic materials, mold... etc... Anyone have any information on this ?

Chlorinated materials can form orgono-chloride compounds, which in turn are stored in the fat cells and
can enter mother's milk. Morpholine is very toxic and a liver and kidney poison. Glycol ether, Stoddard
solvent, naphtha and kerosene are neurotoxins and central nervous system depressants which can
cause confusion, headaches, lack of concentration, and symptoms of mental illness. Glycol ether is
also a kidney and liver poison. Sodium bromide can cause confusion.

Incorrectly shielded electrical junctions can put out a ton of energy.  Depending on the load a person can feel agitated, nervous, dizzy, feel like they are being watched, develop paranoia.  Some have even induced peripheral halucinations aka seeing ghosts.

I just watched a show on public TV about brain function and chemicals, and it can cause symptoms of mental illness in heavily exposed people. They had an interesting segment about how to deal with folks who always argue and think they are right. It is actually a part of your brain and how it functions that cause that. It is why reverse (perverse) psychology works better on some folks. I always though it was all behavioral, but apparently not.
