  This book presents the basic and applied toxicology of aflatoxins, including analytical identification, agricultural and veterinary implications, toxicology and carcinogenesis in humans, and economic and regulatory problems associated with aflatoxin Book Edition: 1.   Aflatoxin is a type of mold that is considered a human carcinogen. It’s found in certain commonly eaten foods including peanuts, peanut butter and corn, and is most harmful in parts of the world where people consume large amount of these foods, such as Asia and Africa. The species of molds that combine to form aflatoxin grow in soils when conditions are just Missing: book. Aflatoxin mycotoxins also suppress the immune system. Aflatoxin Types There are three main types of aflatoxin mycotoxins: Aflatoxins B: This group includes aflatoxin B1 and B2. Aflatoxin B1 is the most common aflatoxin, as well as the most toxic and carcinogenic. Aflatoxins G: This group includes aflatoxin G1 and aflatoxin G2Missing: book.

The Aflatoxin Handbook has been revised to incorporate changes to the aflatoxin testing program that have evolved since the handbook was last printed on This handbook illustrates step-by-step procedures for testing and certifying grain and commodities forFile Size: KB. Aflatoxin: Scientific Background, Control, and Implications discusses general problems posed by mycotoxin contamination in foods and feeds. This book is divided into 15 chapters that summarize the 5/5(1).   Aflatoxins are responsible for damaging up to 25% of the world's food crops, resulting in large economic losses in developed countries and human and animal disease in under-developed ones. In addition to aflatoxins, the presence of other mycotoxins, particularly fumonisins, brings additional concerns about the safety of food and field supplies.5/5(1). AFLATOXINS Aflatoxins were considered by previous IARC Working Groups in , , , and (IARC, , , , and ). Since that time new data have become available, which have been incorporated in this Monograph, and taken into consideration in the present evaluation. 1.
