Mold in Food Affects Brain

Mold toxins are called mycotoxins, and a new study shows that a common food-based mycotoxin called Ochratoxin A, has a negative impact on the brain, particularly in the area where neurodegenerative diseases start (subventricular zone).  This mold is especially common in cereals.  If you didn't know, there is an entire website devoted to the effects of mold on human health, and that is www.survivingmold.com.  Is there anything one can do to lower mycotoxin effects?  A clay called zeolite (one product example is ACZ Nano) has been shown to bind to mycotoxins.  Also, my understanding is that mold toxins are primarily excreted out of the body through bile, so it would then make sense that optimizing liver and gallbladder function might help.
