I have 4 different breads, white, wheat, rye and sourdough. All 
have a lot of mold growing except the soughdough. I exposed all 
4 to the open air in the same room for the same amount of time. 
I was thinking, should I take 4 more slices of sourdough, repeat 
the procedure to see if something happens?
