Answer ( 1 )

  1. Depends on what type of mold that grows on the bread.

    Some molds commonly found in our surroundings can be toxic, while the rest are mostly safe to consume, although not recommended. The worst thing that could happen is that you could suffer from allergy and irritation, although there has been a report stating that you could catch cancer if you eat bread populated with mycotoxigenic strain, which is carcinogenic in nature, although highly unlikely you’ll get cancer by eating a slice of bread swarmed with mycotoxigenic mold.
