Mold produces allergens. It may cause those that are sensitive to respiratory problems to experience allergic reactions, increased asthma attacks, or hay fever. Other symptoms could include nausea, skin rashes, dizziness, headaches, etc… and these effects are just from mold that is considered non-toxic.
