Postweaning Exposure to Aflatoxin Results in Impaired Child Growth: A Longitudinal Study in Benin, West Africa
Aflatoxins are dietary contaminants that are hepatocarcinogenic and immunotoxic and cause growth retardation in animals, but there is little evidence concerning the latter two parameters in exposedExpand

Workgroup Report: Public Health Strategies for Reducing Aflatoxin Exposure in Developing Countries
Consecutive outbreaks of acute aflatoxicosis in Kenya in 2004 and 2005 caused > 150 deaths. In response, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization convened aExpand

Aflatoxin exposure in utero causes growth faltering in Gambian infants.
BACKGROUND Growth faltering in West African children has previously been associated with dietary exposure to aflatoxins, particularly upon weaning. However, in animal studies in utero exposure to lowExpand

Mycotoxins and human disease: a largely ignored global health issue.
Aflatoxins and fumonisins (FB) are mycotoxins contaminating a large fraction of the world's food, including maize, cereals, groundnuts and tree nuts. The toxins frequently co-occur in maize. WhereExpand

Determinants of aflatoxin exposure in young children from Benin and Togo, West Africa: the critical role of weaning.
BACKGROUND Dietary exposure to high levels of the fungal toxin, aflatoxin, occurs in West Africa, where long-term crop storage facilitates fungal growth. METHODS We conducted a cross-sectionalExpand
