Bread with mold is a throwaway object. What you see as mold is just the
fruit body. How far the mold has intruded into the bread is unknown.
Molds can be poisonous.

White mold?
Hmmn probably of the penicillium species related to the ones used in
cheesemaking,
Hmnn they are not that toxic, but just have a queer taste;but sensitive
people can get ' sick' just thinking they have accidentally eaten it
with their breadg
But if its a black mold say belonging to the aspergillus specie, a
cousin of aspergillus flavus, or the one causing extreme carcinogenic
aflatoxin that might be risky.g
