This section of the Paradigm Change website lists citations for more than a thousand journal articles focusing on the health effects of aflatoxin.
Aflatoxin – a mycotoxin made by Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus – is especially recognized for being very highly carcinogenic and for causing other types of liver damage, but it also has a wide variety of other negative effects on human and animal health.
One especially interesting line of research done in Africa focuses on the apparent role of aflatoxin exposures in increasing the likelihood that people will contract HIV and also that those who are positive for the virus will get sick with AIDS.
