Aflatoxins are a group of potent foodborne toxicants naturally occurring in maize and groundnuts. Differential species-specific sensitivity to aflatoxins has been documented but cannot be fully explained by the differences in metabolism of these toxicants among animal species. Commensal microbial communities (microbiota) are critical to human and animal health, but few studies have assessed interactions between xenobiotic toxins and those microbiota, and its potential effects to humans and… CONTINUE READING
