Rusts toxic molds may cause allergic reactions like asthma and hay fever type responses in genetically sensitive people.
There are no reports of Rusts as a pathogen or as a toxigenic agent.
Rusts are often found in grasses, flowers, trees, and other living plant materials. Rusts toxic molds are disseminated as a dry spore by the wind while other species have an active spore release mechanism. For growth, this toxic mold requires a living host plant for growth.
- Allergen: coughing and sniffles
- Toxigenic: young, sick, and elderly
- Pathogenic: everyone

Rusts toxic molds are a parasitic plant pathogen that is not reported to infect humans or known to be a toxigenic agent. Rusts are members of the Basidiomycetes class. They have a complex life cycle, producing five different spore types in two different plant hosts. Spore types include basidiospores, pycniospores, aeciospores, urediospores, and teliospores.
