Default CD rot and fungus

Does anyone have a solution to stop fungus on CD's in hot humid weather. It looks like a spidery small patch maybe less than a millimeter or bigger. It smears across the disc if rubbed . It also comes off easily when washed with soap solution. But how does one stop it from forming without housing the discs in a special cabinet ? Note that all the CD's are generally kept in pristine condition without even a finger print on them.
What about CD rot where the discs turn slightly reddish and becomes unplayable ? Some CD's surely will not last more than 10 years in some areas.

Default Printing Ink.

Hi Hugo,
Thanks for the links. I do remember that long ago I spoke to someone at an exhibition regarding printing inks. He was selling CD manufacturing machines. He had said that they did have reports about the paper and ink reacting with the disk causing disk rot or fungus. One partial solution is to keep the paper label outside or use a thin PVC barrier behind the paper so that it does not directly touch the disk.
