Is mold dangerous?
Some molds are dangerous, in fact, to my knowledge, most are. Some are used for medicines, such as penicillin, which is used to combat many sicknesses.

Most molds on foods are forms of penicillin, but it is not wise to eat it. -Molds can be toxic in high amounts. Not all black mold is is dangerous, however stachybotrys chartarum is dangerous in very small amounts. It is a blackish slimy mold, and it's spores do not become airborn easily.

It depends on what you mean. It can be dangerous to breathe mold spores. It can also cause other problems occasionally if you eat the mold or get it on your skin. Most of the extreme danger is to people who are allergic, but in general it is good to discard food that is moldy, and clean up mold in your home to avoid general health problems.
