Biological Characteristics of the Aflatoxin-Induced Hepatic Tumor

  • Avril D. Woodhead
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (volume 6)

Abstract

Human diseases resulting from the contamination of food by fungal products have been recorded since the Middle Ages. The terrifying convulsions, dancing mania and, finally, the gangrene of “St. Anthony’s fire” a common epidemic disease of the tenth and eleventh centuries, came from eating rye infected with the ergot fungus, Claviceps purpurea. Under suitable conditions of high humidity, fungi can grow on almost any plant and plant product. It is not surprising, therefore, that epidemics of mycotoxicosls have been recorded from many parts of the world; early this century, “yellow rice disease” in Japan and alimentary toxic aleukia in Russia killed large numbers of people (18).
