Aflatoxin belongs to a group of fungal toxins known as mycotoxins, and is widespread in agricultural products and food.  Aflatoxin is associated with both acute and chronic toxicity in animals and humans including acute liver damage, liver cirrhosis, and liver cancers.  Chronic toxicity associated with ingestion of low dose aflatoxin in peanuts, cereals and other at risk items are of greater concern.
